Our tree-planting project relies on school children to look after the saplings for three years after which, if the sapling is doing well, they are given some small gift.
The photos show Bonkron primary school children receiving pens as their reward. We’re very grateful to Pens4Kids for giving us the biros. The children love them.
When people asked taxi-driver Emmanuel why he worked so hard, he explained that he was saving up to pay for an operation for his little daughter, who had a hole in the heart. Volunteers Dawn and Paul immediately offered to fund it, and here are some pictures of the child, who is doing well after the operation.
We warmly invite you to join us at our annual summer party, when London-based Ashanti’s will cook Ghanaian food to thank us for helping their villages.
It will be held from 4pm to 6pm on Saturday 21st July at (or just outside) The Tenants Hall, Underneath Tresham, Lambs Conduit Passage, London WC1R 4RE, nearest tube Holborn.
There will be Ashanti music, gifts and plenty to eat and drink. You will also meet our amazing, cosmopolitan community of volunteers.
Congratulations to Mame Martha Arko, who has just won the prize for the best kept latrine in Gyetiase, beating the likes of Opanin Mobe, Amazon Gyambia and Opanin Yaw Adu.
She won a small cash prize, and the runners up won even smaller sums, all to be presented at the next village meeting.
