Spartanburg Orphanage Project was set up to support the lives of children in Donkorkrom. Donkorkrom is one of the most deprived areas of the Afram Plains District and Ghana in general. The people struggle to earn a decent wage through subsistence farming and many children are expected to help farm the land rather than going to school. Old tribal superstitions saying that a child whose mother dies during child birth is cursed are still widely believed in some of the most deprived parts of Ghana and many babies were being abandoned each year, their lives dependent on the kindness of strangers. The orphanage provided protection for these children, food to eat and a place to sleep. And a mother to comfort them. As the numbers have grown, funds became more and more scarce and the orphanage feared it would not be able to care for the children properly. Malnourished and with little stimulation the children had little hope for the future.

Since 2006, through the loyal support of friends and sponsors the orphanage has grown from strength to strength and has seen the development of a school and a thriving community for the children.

A team of volunteers from DARE Dundee will be travelling to Ghana to help continue the fantastic work at the Spartanburg orphanage. We will be helping out at the orphanage and school, assisting the mothers and teachers and helping to add some fun and energy to the children's lives!

These vibrant, loving kids need your continuing support to ensure they reach their potential. The vision of the Ghanaians at the orphanage has always been to secure a better future for the children and to become self sustaining. Everything donated has gone straight to the orphanage, where it is needed most.

Please help us to help the children of Donkorkrom to enjoy life the way children should!
