2018 was an amazing year of accomplishment, joy and hope for everyone involved with Hope for Ghana. As my team visited the village of Kpevenu this week, preparations are already being made for Hope for Ghana to begin building a kindergarten and primary school in just a few weeks.
2018 saw the opening of Mason’s School of Hope in the remote village, Gakpokorpe, where children now learn in a school with 4 classrooms, a library, toilets, running water and solar powered electricity. The tiny villages of Gayikope and Abusakope now have access to clean, potable water in their villages instead of walking miles to fetch dirty water from a river dam.
In February I will arrive in Ghana to begin building Hope for Ghana’s second school in Kpevenu where young children now have to walk 6 kilometers (nearly 4 miles) to the nearest school. Hope for Ghana’s largest project to date will proudly bring a kindergarten and primary school, water and solar power to a community starving for the opportunity that education brings. And many other villages will soon have access to desperately needed clean water.
On behalf of the children and families in Ghana I wish you a very healthy and happy new year. I remain eternally grateful for your continued encouragement and support of Hope for Ghana’s life changing projects. Together we are transforming the lives of children and communities in Ghana. One village at a time.
