Ghana 2017

unspecified

The Trust will be working with the Kokrobite Chiltern Centre in Ghana again in 2017. (http://www.kokrobitechilterncentre.org)

After collaborating with the Centre last year, when a group of 12-13 year olds raised funds to build a community football pitch in the village of Kokrobite, and visited Ghana to help on the project, we will be sending two groups out to Ghana to work on further projects in 2017.

The groups of boys aged between 11 and 15 will be visiting in February and May 2017.  Those involved have already started fundraising to support the new projects:

  • construction of a pitch-side classroom (made from recycled plastic bottles)
  • construction of a well to supply fresh water
  • installation of solar panels
  • construction of 100 mosquito net frames to be used outside

Details of some of the fundraising activities can be found under the enrichment trips page.
