Scholars Build Water Filtration Systems in Ghana


Donate today to help us reach our goal to send STEM Scholars to Ghana.
“They are more than STEM ambassadors. Their focus on sustainability, education, eliminating food deserts, collaboration, and above all, on human rights is exemplary.” - Dr. Rajiv Mallick Senior Risk Manager at APG Asset Management US Inc.

In October 2022, our STEM Ambassadors designed 3D-printed water filters for the citizens of Jackson! That project was a huge success and impacted many lives. The scholars left Jackson even more inspired! Upon doing their research, the Stem Ambassadors discovered that unclean water kills more people than war! The STEM Ambassadors of Imhotep have decided to take this project to Ghana to incorporate a water filtration system into a local village school. (Featured on WPVI 6 Acts of Kindness); (Philadelphia Sunday Sun); (WURD 900 AM); (WLBT Jackson, MS); (Philadelphia Tribune)

We have a goal of raising $20,000 to get to Ghana and purchase supplies needed to build the filtration system. Under the leadership of our Director of STEM, Shirley Posey, the Team of Ambassadors includes the following scholars:
