But there’s always more to do. Each time we go to Ghana or Togo we meet with our friends and visit remote villages to see how we can help. The last time we were there we made a sack garden for Mary Afari , who is director of a school in the Volta region. While there, we noticed she has some pressing needs. The kids do not have toilets and use a corner that is sectioned off for some privacy. The kids also didn’t have a place to wash their hands before eating.
We are fund raising for a kitchen and more sanitary toilets for Mary, but were able to make some tippy taps so the kids could wash their hands. All it took was a few empty cooking oil containers and a few bars of soap. It’s the little things in life that can make us all smile.
We are fundraising for toilets and a kitchen for Golda Meir Academy, a school in the Volta region run by our friend, Mari Afari, a seamstress. The 90 children who attend the school in a farming community would be working in the fields with their parents if Mary’s school was closed. Pictured are the toilets the children use. She needs a more hygienic solution for the children, some of whom do not have shoes. She also needs a kitchen, all the lunch meals for the children are cooked outside in a single pot over an open flame. If you would like to donate to Mary, please note it in your Paypal donation.
