We are so excited about this year’s fundraiser! This year marks our 10th year of service trips to Ghana!!

Since our last fundraiser, thanks to the generous donations of our supporters, we have been able to accomplish so many great things, the highlights which include:

  • Intensive teacher training sessions
  • Language, reading comprenshion, and math assessments of 171 students in Kindergarten through Seventh grade
  • Hosting 32 doctors from New Jersey’s Caribbean Medical Missions and GAMA who treated over 2,000 patients from over 15 villages and towns with medications and prescription eye glasses in the “soft” opening of The Life Care Center in January 2018.
  • Distributing clothing and shoes to children and families in need
  • Completion and Grand Opening of The Life Care Center in July 2018

We cannot wait to see what this year will bring with your generous support! We look forward to celebrating these accomplishments with you on October 12th and setting big goals for the future.

From the board of Adopt One Village and the people of Yaw Tenkorang, we say a big heartfelt “Medaase,” Thank you!
