The second phase of building Hope for Ghana’s first school in the remote village of Gakpokorpe has reached a new height. I returned from Ghana a few weeks ago, blessed to witness the roofing of Mason’s School of Hope. The core structure of this new school has been built by masons, carpenters, electricians, a plumber, welder and an entire community that has contributed to building a future for the children in this beautiful village.
Work will be ongoing over the next several weeks as electricians provide the wiring for the future electricity for the water pump at the worksite and the entire school; carpenters create the ceiling; and masons plaster the entire building.
This is what dedication and commitment from Ghana looks like when every person on your team shares a vision for a better tomorrow for these children.
These are the children and families of Gakpokorpe that inspire my mission (click on pictures to enlarge them). These children are the future of Ghana. They are our future.
And this is a taste of the tireless commitment of Hope for Ghana’s team. They are the blood, sweat and tears of this mission, and I am so proud of their faithfulness and generosity.
To the Pittsburgh community that donated clothes, shoes, bibles, vitamins and so many other gifts, know that a grateful community is overjoyed and thankful.
I am already counting the weeks until I return to Ghana at the end of August to complete this exciting project and formally open Mason’s School of Hope. The most beautiful part of my most recent trip is still to be told. Stay tuned for a new dimension to Hope for Ghana’s vision!
