    Story

    In April 2016, I joined a group working towards ending the cycle of poverty in Ghana. To do this we are raising awareness and money in order to work towards sending children to school, preventing malaria, providing safe drinking water and building safe buildings and cisterns from recycled bottles. In September 2016, I and the rest of the group travelled to Kokrobite and this experience had a big impact on our lives. We built a water cistern that can be used for fish farming, built a SODIS rack out of bamboo (water purification system), built detachable malaria nets out of bamboo and 3D printed screws, made over a couple of hundred books, painted the inside and outside of part of a school, sorted and gave out donated clothes, built a tire swing, made informational posters about malaria and the SODIS racks, helped the children with their homework and donated clothes, toys, school supplies etc. ourselves. We also experienced a lot of Ghanaian culture which we thoroughly enjoyed. Our trip inspired people to return to Ghana and continue working with the people that we have built relationships with. I would really like to return as well, however I am also saving for a trip to New Zealand to see my best friend who I have not seen in nearly two years, and both trips together are very expensive. Even after my trip, I am still raising awareness and money through bake sales, jewelry sales, jar wars', donation boxes etc. I would genuinely appreciate any donations you can spare, in order for me to return to Ghana and continue to make a difference in the town of Kokrobite. Any money not used in getting to and from Ghana, will be donated to the cause or used to buy necessary materials for the village. Thank you in advance!
