Project Wisdom Visits

Building Partnership: On June 29, the Project Wisdom Team, comprising of Miles Macleod, an educator in America, his wife and twelve high school students, travel to Ghana as a part of a program created last year. Their mission is to meet with NGO in Ghana and be able to identify projects to raise awareness and funds through service-learning.

The group met with Hoops Care staff and members at the basketball court in Cape Coast. They were told the challenges facing the organization by Country Director, Claudius Thompson. He went on to explain how HCI is making an impact in the community through health, education and sports programs. The Project Wisdom team was more impress with our malaria prevention project.

The highlight of the visit was a donation of sport equipment by Miles to our coordinator, Mr. Alfred Davis.

A free throw and three point shooting competition was then held between Alfred and Miles, dubbed USA vs Ghana. This drew a crowd with both sides shouting USA, USA and GHANA, GHANA!!!!

We are positive with the partnership with Project Wisdom to go a long way in making our programs self sustainable. We want to day a big Thank You for selecting our project for a stop over.

Shortage of bed nets and funds for renewal

Save a ch:

We are glad that we are still striving to save children from malaria in Ghana. This is not an easy issue for us as it now stands. We are short of funding to get the nets in whole sale and is currently relying on retail prices which is not economical due to the low budget we have.

A net is now costing a little over $10 over the counter.

Another issue which has been brought to our attention is that the health insurance cards which we did for over 200 children need renewal. Click here to read full progress report on Global Giving
