Saha Global (formerly known as Community Water Solutions) empowers women in rural communities to solve their village’s need for clean water and electricity by providing business opportunities. They bring leaders from around the world to Ghana through a Global Leadership Program where they train local women to launch profitable social enterprises. All of the revenue from these businesses stays in the community and is managed by the women entrepreneurs. To date, Saha Global has launched 71 clean water businesses and 5 solar electricity businesses, which empower 164 women entrepreneurswho serve 38,108 people. 100% of these businesses are still in operation today.
I spent 3.5 weeks in rural Ghana with the Saha Global team to help their re-branding and marketing efforts.
