Board of Directors
Our inter-disciplinary Board of Directors brings a range of specialized skills and experience to the Saha Global. The team is led by former management consulting professionals, holding graduate degrees from Massachusetts Institute of Technology specializing in Household Water Treatment and Safe Water Storage (HWTS) in the developing world, as well as engineering and business degrees from MIT, Dartmouth, Harvard, and the University of Virginia. Over half of the team has previous field experience implementing water health projects in other Sub-Saharan countries of Africa as well as Latin America. In addition to the Directors listed below, Executive Director, Kate Clopeck, also serves as a member of the Board.
Through our work on the ground in Ghana and the United States, we have built relationships with partners that have helped us engage with communities, bridge the language gap, establish a local network and expand our impact. Such partners are essential to project sustainability in the developing world and represent an equally valuable component of our Saha Global team.
In Ghana, we have received guidance and support from several organizations who share our motivation to solve some of the biggest challenges that rural communities of the developing world face. We think of these people and these organizations as an extension of our team: Public Service Center at MIT, Pure Home Water, UNICEF, the Carter Center, PATH, Burro, International Aid, the Center for Disease Control, The Central Gonja, East Gonja, Sevelagu, and Tolon District Assemblies.
