Refurbishment Complete at 5 Schools in Ghana
Projects Abroad has just completed renovation work on five schools in the Central region of Ghana. Not only have volunteers there painted five nurseries and orphanages but they have also donated 400 exercise books and 31 school uniforms.
Doors and windows were repaired in one of the schools, cracks on the wall were cemented and the entire building was given its first lick of paint in over ten years.
The Coordinator of our Central region, Grant Appiah, explained that over 150 volunteers had visited the region in the past year to provide services ranging from teaching to health care.
One of these volunteers, Lindsey Crowle, aged 17, donated five computers to St Michael's Catholic School to support the teaching of basic IT literacy at the school. It is hoped that these computers will improve the skills in programs such Microsoft Word and Excel.
Lindsey is now raising money back home to provide bedding supplies to orphanages in the region.
