On the 2019 trip, the Love Ghana team took a Solar trial kit to the village of Have Tornu where they will be trialling the technology this year. In the last few years, mobile data has become common place in Ghana making it easier to communicate all year round. We have been hearing reports on how well the solar charged batteries and torches are being received in the community and so far, it's all looking good.
The team also visited the school in Juapong which has had a number of Love Ghana grants. We were very encouraged to see how the school has grown and developed. We also met Pamela who has been able to go to secondary school with sponsorship from the Mawunyo Oil processing project.
At the 2019 AGM in Ghana, we heard how many of our projects are now self-sustaining and some have expanded. New work skills projects were given initial funding and we heard how well the plans for the social centre in Ho are progressing. Mary who was our first sponsored apprentice has completed her training and has started her own dressmaking business. Mary is a single mum and the opportunity has positively impacted her family's lives.
