we will be working closely with Drive Aid Ghana,a non-profit organization that dedicates itself to the reduction of poverty in Damongo.
Our campaign also includes an exhibition, sharing sessions and charity sale in October so as to raise local students’ awareness on poverty issue.
With a focus on the sustainability of our service project, we aim at empowering our service targets with practical lifelong skills.
Our focused areas in Ghana are as follows:
a) Promote health-care and disease prevention in the orphanage
b) Promote the planting of Moringa, which can effectively improve malnutrition and self-sufficiency in Damongo
c) Transfer practical skills and knowledge to the orphans
This project was a great success. The project titled: “Ghana 2012: Do small Things with Great Love” eleven HKU students visited Ghana to make a great impact; they taught students of Redemption Academy – Basic Reading and Writing, repainted/maintained the orphanage home, shared their resources and love, as well has had fun!
The team members are working hard on their return to send other students each summer to continue and experience wonderful service project. You can be part of the team too!
