This once in a lifetime opportunity is being granted to me by a non-profit organization known as Saha Global. Paired with the alumni mentors of Saha, a team of students from across the country and I will venture to a small village in the northern region of Ghana. In the hustling and bustling town of Tamale, over 40% of its population does not have access to clean drinking water, thankfully, we have Saha. The goal of this three week Ghanan expedition is to immerse ourselves into an exotic culture while simultaneously improving the standard of living in the area. On May 11, with the funds that my team and I will have raised, we will purchase large drums (that will hold the contaminated water during various stages of the purifying process), taps, chlorine tablets and storage containers for each household so as to prevent recontamination. Once treated and distributed, we will then teach the members of this Ghanan community how to collect and purify their own water solutions. Slowly but surely, Saha and field representatives like myself work hard to protect basic human rights: the right to clean water and healthy living.
