Operation Smile :-)

“Tooth cleaning campaign” is a program aimed at addressing minor tooth problems such as plaques and tooth decay and encouraging the maintaining of healthy tooth among children in village communities where there are no dentists.

By this way we teach a brother to teach a brother the best way to keep their teeth healthy by using a recognized hand book we received from The Hesperian’ s back in 2016.

Although we did not received any financial support on this program but we received in-kind support from friends and supporters whom we may like to acknowledge: Elisabetta Frate & Husband, Federica Luison and Roberta Mangano.

So far so good, two village communities being attended….a total number of children and adults educated numbered up to 450 and still counting.

To enable us to sustain this program and extend our services to more deprived communities we appeal to donors and friends to come to the aid of the program!

Education is like a domino

According to recent studies, almost 90% of Ghana’s children are in school!

This is a great article about the advancements that have happened in Ghana within the last decades. It also shows that investment in education can yield to great results. Although many children now have the possibility to get an education, there is still a lot of child labour and many older kids have to leave school due to a lack of financial means.
“The kids who go to school have more friends. I know education is a right but no one has enrolled me.”
Let’s work together for those children whose lives still haven’t changed despite Ghana’s advancements.

For us, it is important to see the disadvantaged with all their potential and great ideas. They are not passive – they are full of energy, compassion and innovation. Our experience with the kids shows that once you give them the opportunities to learn and grow, many new and positive processes happen. It’s like a domino. Education is the first step to activate their powers and to give them self-confidence.

Promoting girl child education

The issues women and girls face stretch far and wide across the globe, and progress can often feel slow when the numbers of oppressed women and girls are so high.

Sex trafficking, gender-based violence, maternal mortality, forced prostitution and early child marriage, how do we combat these issues? One of the most effective ways is education.

Currently one in five eligible girls worldwide are not attending school, this is unacceptable. we need to make sure that every girl has access to affordable education. Schooling is not just a solution for girls, but also for communities as well. Through education girls are less vulnerable to trafficking, turn to have fewer children and gain greater access to job market. Some of the actions we ca take to promote global education are simple: we can provide school uniforms or supply school shoes, text books, exercise books or even provide financial incentives to families in exchange for students regular attendance.
