Ahaban Christmas Cup

On 2nd December 2017 we kicked off our second Ahaban Green Christmas activity  which was dubbed as the “Ahaban Christmas Cup” and held at Gomoa Fetteh. It is an initiative to develop talent and promote education through football. The bus took off from Accra around 7am and due to traffic arrived at Gomoa Fetteh around 10am. The competition kicked off at around 11am.

The tournament was between 4 teams namely :

. Gomoa Soccer for Change F/C

. Tus Marialinden

. Fareeda F/C

. Unity S/C

The players were aged between 9 years to 15 years.

The Color Spree Journey

These past weeks, Ahaban GLF joined SOF Ghana on their Color Spree Project as the raised awareness on Down Syndrome and Autism.

We visited the Dzorwulu Special School, where we assisted the kids through art and bead making class. With the help of Live FM’s Vanessa Gyan we wrapped it all up with a special treat for the kids.

We later visited Echoing Hills Village as part of our Autism Awareness Campaign for the month of April. We took the kids through art class in which to bring out their creative skills and later donated some items to them.
