Ahaban-GLF | Ghana COVID Relief Progress

Hello Family! As we come to the end of the 3rd week of Lockdown we’d like to thank you again for all your kind donations towards our Covid19 relief efforts here in Accra (Ghana)

Our Progress

We’ve raised a total of GHs 4000.00 over the past few weeks. We’ve also received donations in the form of food items. Thank You!

Your donations went into feeding 300-400 homeless people in Accra through Christ The King Soup Kitchen.

Following a Government directive, on Thursday 16th April, we started serving all daily meals from the Efua Sutherland Children’s park under the supervision of police, military and Ministry Of Gender & Social protection who ensure the beneficiaries comply Social Distancing rules while collecting their food.

Moving Forward

There’s a possibility that the lockdown may continue. In making preparations towards that, our target is to raise an extra GHS 6000.00 to prepare food baskets with essential food items for distribution to identified families and individuals in need of help.

Thanks to our partners (Give Ghana) and your donations we’ll be able to start distributing the first 50 food boxes this weekend.

We’d like to encourage you to keep the donations coming in as we do all we can to support the homeless and less-privileged during this tough time.

Ahaban Volunteer Program

Ahaban GLF believes strongly in building the capacity of our volunteers. We can only give more when we have the capacity to do so. Through our capacity building activities we’ll be seeking to help our volunteers discover and develop skills and talents, advance their education and careers as well as improve your own well being. All with the goal of getting them in a better position to in turn give to someone else in need.

Our capacity building activities will include:

Mentorship/counseling sessions
Training workshops
Educational Scholarship opportunities

These activities will be organized and managed by the Ahaban Volunteer Network (AVN)

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.
