On the first Sunday of July in 2019, I will be embarking my journey to Ghana to volunteer with disabled children. Around 5 million people in Ghana live with a disability, which is around a fifth of the population. Approximately 100,000 Ghanaian children aged 6-14 have a disability and more than 16,000 of these children are out of school. Children with disabilities are often left at home, unable to go outside the house let alone make it to school. Many are shunned for their disability, marginalised and forgotten.
I want to make an impact plus this projects combines my two favourite things, children and giving back. I think for any student, we feel a bit incomplete but I feel this is my way to explore and feel fulfilment. This is something I have wanted to do; visiting Africa and volunteering. Spending 2-3 weeks with children would honestly make me so happy.
I don't think we understand how privileged and lucky we are to be fit and healthy and in your donation, you are somewhat helping a child's ability to explore their potential. I have never felt so passionately about a project like this one.
I hope you can donate generously, I mean £5 is good but isn't £20 just great! ;)
My target is £1000. Please help me make a difference.
Thank you to everyone who donated and spread the word.
