Help send Muskegon Kids to Ghana (West Africa)

Donation protected
Congratulations Mekhi Thomas, Bryce Thompson & Jeremiah Crawford. The three students were chosen for the once-in-a-lifetime experience of an all-expenses-paid free trip to Africa. They were chosen out of more than 100 students because of their high-achieving scholastic academics and their involvement in various efforts to make their respective communities better.

KFTTA began in 2016 by Paul Allen Billings, Founder of the West Michigan Community Help Network. The trip abroad is paid for by donations from the public.
Among the activities, the young visitors will experience include
participating in traditional African ceremonies, visits to historic sites such as the Elmina Slave Castle, and the W.E.B. DuBois Centre in Accra, the Capital of Ghana.

This once-in-a-lifetime trip is made possible by you!

One parent said, "I’m elated and it’s a lifetime opportunity. I’ve never been outside of the country”,… another wrote, "I appreciate the opportunity my son has been given and I’m sure he’ll use this as a stepping stone to go further in whatever he does”.

By donating to this program, you are investing in future leaders!

Donations help cover but not limited to the following :

Your donation will help show kids a world they might not otherwise ever have the opportunity to see!

Your donation will provide inspiration, and encourage them to develop an ‘anything is possible in this world of opportunity’, mindset!

Studies show that there are countless benefits that traveling gives young people: It pushes educational boundaries, broadens horizons, helps to overcome language barriers, creates cultural sensitivity, and fosters independence and empowerment.

Expenses include travel (airline tickets at $1,850 each), hotel ($500/person), food ($150/person), ground transportation ($150/person), passports ($145 each), Visa ($100 each), and medical preparation (shots, etc. at $350 each).
