We started off at Accra Mall, made our first stop right by Villagio where we distributed some packs of food. Second stop was at the Airport Junction then we moved to our third stop which was Silver Star Towers, Opeibea. At this location, we were rushed on by the kids for the packs of food we had for them. It felt so heartwarming to see their faces beam up with smiles as soon as they got their packs of food.

From there we made stops at the rest of the chosen locations and eventually we got to our last stop which was the Kwame Nkrumah Circle. We finished the exercise at around 2pm.

From series of demonstrations and tutorials from our project head Adwoa, the kids grasped the basics and went along to make their own customized beads with the help of some of our volunteers who were present.
