This summer, I am traveling to Ghana to participate in a volunteer project in a small town in the Northern Region of Ghana. My group is a part of Operation Crossroads Africa, a non-profit with over 50 years of experience on the continent, working to bridge cross-cultural relationships between Americans and Africans. OCA is working with local African organizations in a handful of countries this summer and I have to privilege to travel to beautiful Ghana.

This year our project entails the following:
-Providing clean drinking water for the school/community by installing a chlorine generator
-Building a kitchen for the school
-Staffing the local clinic
-Assisting in the primary school
-Promoting the local agricultural project to diversify crop use

I'm asking for your help because while the volunteers, OCA, and I will have some funds to contribute toward these projects, we could do so much more with your help! The school has no cafeteria or clean drinking water and thus the kids go practically all day without eating or drinking. The local non-profit has the means to provide lunch, but needs an on-site kitchen and access to water. Currently, the students and community get their drinking/cooking water from a pond filled with human/animal waste and other pollutants. Thus, we really need support to install a WaterStep chlorine generator that can purify the water for drinking and cooking.

With your help we can go above and beyond what the community expects of us this summer.
