Ahaban Green Camp – 9th Edition at Osu Presby. Preparatory School

On the 27th of April 2019, Ahaban the Green Leaf Foundation held their 9th Ahaban Green Camps program at the Osu Presbyterian Preparatory School, Osu.

They had children coming in from schools in Osu, Labadi and its environs and were hosted by the Osu Eben-ezer Presby CDC, Osu.

Starting off with the reading sessions, the kids were split up into small age appropriate groups. Pronunciation of words and understanding of the books were some of the things the volunteers focused on. Some of the kids struggled a little with certain words but at the end of the session, they came out as champs.

They then went on to teach screen printing as well as tie and dye and the sessions and crowned it with the computer literacy sessions. The kids were impressively knowledgeable in basic computer knowledge and had pretty in-depth questions which were answered by the Ahaban team.

Ahaban Green Camp – 6th Edition

The 6th edition of the Ahaban Green Camp Session happened on 19th May 2018 at Kathy Knowles Community Library.

We started off with a reading session in four (4) groups which were assisted by Ahaban volunteers. The kids read books on moral lessons in life which came in different titles like Humility, Generosity, Honesty, Truth etc. After reading, they were asked questions and what lessons they picked up from the stories read.

We then moved on to the next session which were the Screen Printing and Bead Making Sessions. The kids were divided into two groups. A practical example of the bead making was done to show them how to create a bracelet  there after they were asked to try their hands on them. Awesome bracelets were produced by the kids. In the screen printing group on the other hand, the kids were shown the basic steps of the screen printing process after which they tried their hands on them.
