I had previously spent 4 months in Ghana during my gap year and got involved with the Raising Hope Foundation through friends at university. As I had been to Ghana before, I knew what to expect – I had already fallen in love with the people, the country, the culture – but nothing prepared me for the impact that the children have had upon my life. Spending time with the children has really changed the way in which I look at everyday things and the way I live – I now realise just how lucky we are and am continuously thinking of ways to raise money and collecting clothes and toys to give to the children. The children are some of the most amazing people I have ever met – they have so little yet always give so much; they are always happy and truly appreciate everything we do with them. Seeing the work the Raising Hope Foundation does in both Sogakope and Santrokofi has made me realised how important our fundraising is and what a huge impact our work is having, and will continue to have, on the lives of the children. I have thoroughly enjoyed being involved with the charity, whilst taking part in fundraising activities in the UK and during trips to Ghana and I am very excited about the future of the Raising Hope Foundation.
