Global Leadership Program Overview
Saha Global knows that young people have the skills, intellect and determination required to solve some of the world’s greatest problems. Through our Global Leadership Program, we provide young leaders the opportunity to harness their passions and knowledge in an impactful way.
Young leaders who participate in Saha’s three-week Global Leadership Program are trained to become Saha Field Representatives. Before traveling abroad, they fundraise to cover the start-up materials needed for each community business, as well as their in-country travel expenses. Once in Ghana, the Field Reps participate in a vigorous and comprehensive training program designed and led by our Saha Global team. Groups of four are then partnered with a rural community where they first introduce the business concept and its particular health, social and economic benefits, and then train local women to launch either a clean water or solar business.
By the end of the three-week program, these businesses will be up and running and the women entrepreneurs will be fully in charge of all operations. Our Saha Global team will then monitor the business for the next 5 years to ensure long-term success.
We are currently accepting applications for our 2017 Winter Global Leadership Program, which takes place from December 28th, 2016 to January 18th, 2017, and our 2017 Summer Global Leadership Program, from May 31st to June 21st, 2017.
