To be able to send children to school is one of our biggest aims, but before we can send our beneficiaries, they have to learn some basics. For that they attend the FCP where they are taught basic literacy and arithmetic skills. Patience, James and Augustine, between 13 and 16 years old showed determination, good moral behaviour, hard work and discipline. They were enrolled to go to school after half a year at the Holy Gabriel Anglican School Complex in Ashaiman.

10 months after ROHC published a proposal for street lights for WEM-Centre, we were able to finish the building process within just one week on Saturday, 29th July 2017. The WEM compound had always been very dark in the night. To prevent our children from wild animals and thieves, several donors were found in Germany and Nine new street lights were bought. They are now lightening the way from the road side to our dormitories. We are so happy to provide our children with better shelter and are...

Happily, we can announce, that another three of our beneficiaries were enrolled into school. Normally, ROHC’s new beneficiaries stay in the Centre for internal pre-school classes for one year before they are enrolled to school. But these 3 new beneficiaries, who were attending pre-school classes for about six months, got the permission to go to school for the third term of this academical year already.

On 13th March 2017, four soldiers from Accra paid a visit to our First Contact Place. The four of them are all in a way related to the 37 Military Hospital in Accra and were asked to come around to have a talk to our beneficiaries about motivation, discipline and a focus for their life. Once they met our highly-excited children in the afternoon, the soldiers gave a short introduction about themselves and asked the children to do the same. When mentioning their dream jobs for their future, every...

It must have been fortune that one afternoon three visitors came to FCP to ask whether they can take a picture of the surrounding from the top of FCP for a programme. The men introduced themselves; they were working for unicef to create awareness for a better sanitation for the community. One of them, Dr Innocent Kamara, was attending mass at the same parish as some of ROHC’s beneficiaries and the volunteers. He is a psychologist and came from Uganda to work in Ghana for about nine months.
