Sanitary Towels to Keep girls in School

This affect their academics and also their confidence. We as an organization has embark on sanitary towel donation to the communities we put volunteers.

Ghana Refugees

My experience with this facility was tremendous, from the staff to the children they take care of. They have a lot of challenges but face them and take care of the children. The love and respect that the children showed has impacted my heart for years to come.The staff was extraordinary in welcoming me to the facility, very awesome place.We brought hygiene supplies which were very badly needed and the girls were so receptive and thankful all of the children that were in class were combined with 2 grade levels due to a lack of space and even as difficult as that sounds they had paid teachers for all levels to accomplish this and they were amazing to bring me in and introduce me and the children were very thankful for me just being there. The love that showed me at all levels was phenomenal and will impact my heart forever.

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
Come and be a part in the lives of these children so many needs but so few workers they need support in areas of classroom space teaching and many other areas. Come and let your lives be impacted.

Life Changing

Words cannot describe how life changing my experience in Ghana was. The support I received, the warm welcoming, the friendly people, and most importantly, the sweetest kids. Being in Future Stars Organization through SFLIG was the best decision I ever made, so happy with the outcome and how I was able to help them, because they extremely need our help. Hopefully I will be coming back soon!

The best of Ghana

This program surpassed all my expectations!
Amazing place where a few local people are creating magic for almost 100 orphan kids. Working with children is pure pleasure as their desire to study and finding out new things is indescribable. During all my stay, I was taken care by the host family who took care I would always feel safe and satisfied, and showed the most beautiful places in Ghana.
The orphanage is a wonderful program with positive children who are eager to learn and dedicated teachers who know what they are doing. I cannot wait to come back.

What would you improve about this program?
I wish this program would be advertised more so the volunteers visited this place more frequently as it very sincere, rewarding and would never disappoint.
