We have two hands : one to help ourselves and one to help others.
I`m asking your help in order to get a part of the funding that I will need in order to go to Ghana together with some friends for a 1 month period.
My plan there is to be a volunteer at one of the orphanages. Being a student doesn`t provide me with an income and I don`t have the financial possibilities to support all the costs. Through my trip there I will dedicate my time and effort to :
- To arrange home work groups with the children in order to help them with school and raise their education level
- To help with keeping the orphanage clean and help with planning excursions and other activities;
About children in Ghana :
In a country like Ghana it is difficult to guarantee good health to children. As a result, the infant mortality rate reaches 13% and many of those who get the chance to survive are not get cared for and become sick with malaria, tuberculosis and even HIV.
Another aspect that I believe deserves particullar attention is the education level. In Ghana, almost a third of the children are not educated, this being one of the lowest rates from the entire continent.
However, in Ghana there are orphanages scattered throughout the country, conducted by people that have a passion in making a difference in the lives of numerous children.
Note : All the extra funds will be used to buy toys and clothes for the children.
