$10K Donation to Orphanage in Ghana

One of our volunteers in Ghana this summer – Liz from Newton, Massachussettes – raised over $10,000 USD for orphans and other children in the town of Kpando and surrounding communities.

During her two-week stay in Ghana, she volunteered at an orphanage, while working with local orphanage directors and child advocates establishing plans for the money. We are happy to report that the funds are being used to provide things like health care and tuition scholarships for over 100 children.

One of the orphanages where we send volunteers was also able to purchase a car, to assist the directors with their work with the children, including taking them to doctor visits.
