New Kid at Project.
We had the opportunity to welcome Rita and her 2months old baby Akosua, to our project in mid-February. Rita and her baby were relocated to our children’s village community due to congested living conditions at the previous orphanage project where she was living with her newly born baby.
The mother and child are presently living with us in one of our family houses and are happy to have more space and better hygienic living conditions. Rita will be participating in our next session of the SMW-Project next month in May to acquire skills in hair braiding and professional manicure.
Support for Non-Resident Kids
The COVID-19 pandemic continues to be the world’s top problem. There is no incident of COVID-19 infection at our children’s village until now. However, its consequences are noticeable at our children’s village project. Despite the many challenges, LoszuGhana continues to extend support to 7 non-resident needy children who live with other family members or guardians outside our village community. All 7 non-resident children continue to get educational, material, health insurance, and food support from LoszuGhana. Our non-resident children are currently living with a known member of their extended families or caregiver who has accepted to live with children and provide care and protection.
Kids in JHS
Time flies, they say, George Snr. and Jnr could barely hold pencils to draw or write their names not so long ago, but today the twins have made the next steps in their education and graduated from Primary school to Junior High School (JHS) at Adunku public school (close to the children village project). The two require about 10mins with their bikes to school and have made new friends and classmates in their new school. George Senior’s favorite subject at school is Maths and Junior loves English and spelling words. The two also enjoy the ride to school every morning and never want to miss school.
The rainy days are here again, and it’s time to grow food crops and vegetables to supplement food consumption at our children’s village.
Alongside growing food crops, we are currently preparing our fish ponds to restock them with fishes once the ponds are filled with rainwater again. Since our fish ponds are dependent on rains, we keep and harvest fishes once a year for food consumption at the project.
However, severe rains affect our surroundings, the children’s village continues to battle erosion problems on our compound. Measure taken so far to handle the situation includes grass and tree planting. These measures have proven to be very effective in the last years, and we continue to plant more trees and grasses specifically to reduce the erosion situation at the project.
