Work Project in Accra Ghana

Our church, Hope City Frankfurt, is sending a work team to Accra, Ghana to help remodel a school there. That school will become a new venue for Hope City Accra as well as provide an improved environment for the students and community. My wife, 7 yr old, and I have a goal to go the week before the team to work with Hope City Accra on a variety of projects in preparation for the team's arrival. It has been a dream of my wife's to take her family back to Africa with her (she's been twice before to Guinea to build a school and Uganda to help run an orphanage) and we finally have the chance.

What will we be doing? Helping Hope City Accra with their ministries, to include City Hearts and more, and help them renovate a school to improve the school, help the community have a better community center, and give the church a venue they can work from as they help love the people of Accra. To find out more about Hope City's vision, see this:

What will your money be used for? We are raising funds simply to cover the cost of the trip, which will include flight travel to and from, food, some travel arrangements inside Accra, and potentially some lodging costs while there. As these costs will change a bit as we plan and finalize our details, we're projecting the total cost to be approximately $4,000 (just a cursory glance at airline tickets shows anywhere from $865 to $1318 currently). So, we need your help!

What happens if we exceed the total necessary to send us OR manage to complete this trip under the fundraising goal? That extra will be donated to support the school as of last planning meeting. Either way, we won't keep a dime of it. Everything you donate in support will be toward getting us there and back OR directly supporting the school.

What if I'm not sure or want to see more information before or after I've decided to help you? More details will follow, so if you aren't sure, bookmark us and check back later. We'll have more specifics, like school name, needs of the school, cost specifics as we finalize the details.

Thanks for your consideration.
