This June I will be traveling once again with Young Dreamers to Ghana, Africa!
WHY? I will be helping student lead the trip which I am very excited about. As much as Ghana is a great place to visit, there is still need. The majority of Ghana's population lives in rural regions and are involved in agriculture. Primary education is free but secondary schools are in short supply, as are healthcare facilities outside of the major cities. A large population of people with AIDS and HIV has also led to a significant number of young orphans and there is little support for the disabled or chronically ill.
WHAT WILL I BE DOING? I will be helping volunteer with local schools to improve their classrooms and interact with their children.
WANT TO HELP? As most trips are it is pretty pricey. As some may know I just started my first year of college at SF State. Being a college student it's a little hard to raise money for such a big trip while focusing on school and outside activities I'm involved with. That's why I am asking you, my family, friends, acquaintances, or hey even random stranger that scrolled across this, for your help! Anything from a dollar to a few dollars is widely appreciated!
