About Us

Community Water Solutions empowers women to launch sustainable water businesses. How do we do it? We don't drill wells! Instead, we bring students and young professionals from around the world to West Africa, where they build water treatment centers and train local women to run them. These businesses provide safe drinking water to the entire community, generate income for the women entrepreneurs who run them, and use local products. To date, CWS has launched 49 water businesses in Ghana that provide clean water to almost 30,000 people. 100% of our businesses are still in operation today.
