BENEFITING: Saha Global
EVENT DATE: Jun 01, 2016
Hi everyone! My name is Ashruti Patel and I am currently a Junior studying at Boston College. I am incredibly excited to announce that I will be traveling to Africa next summer with SAHA Global to participate in their Global Leadership Program. This program aims to bring solar energy to rural villages outside of Accra, Ghana. For some perspective, only 10% of SAHA's partner villages have access to power. SAHA partners with communities that lack access to electricity, and I will be responsible for training community-appointed women to build and run a solar-powered charging center to meet this need.
I honestly cannot do this without your help. Without the capital to start the solar business, or even the money to buy a plane ticket there, I literally will be watching this opportunity pass me by. Every single dollar you trust me with will go directly towards bringing light and entrepreneurship to villages that otherwise may not have that chance. 100% of the 76 water and solar businesses created by SAHA Global in the past are still operational and completely run by local entrepreneurs in the community!
Please help support this great cause. You can either directly donate to this website, venmo me at apatel714, or send a check to the address listed below.
