  • I think I can, I think I can

    This car is now 15 years old and still thinks it can. It had 60,000+ miles on it when we purchased it, thanks to Church of the Redeemer in Sarsota. Now the odometer has turned over, and over and I cannot even imagine how many miles it has traveled. This was yesterday when we traveled […]

  • We Found Her!

    Two years ago Ghanaian Mothers’ Hope installed a computer lab at St. Paul’s Junior High School in an effort to help the students pass the B.E.C.E., Basic Education Certification Examination. All students in Ghana must pass this exam in order to enroll in High School. Since its inception in 2004, St. Paul’s has not had […]

  • Online vs In Line Shopping

    Online vs In Line Shopping

    While talking with my husband the other night he questioned why I needed to be in Ghana two weeks before my team arrives to run the Reading Camp. Well, a lot has to do with online vs in line shopping. There is no online shopping here in Ghana, so everything is in line or the […]

  • BE THE ONE!

    Have you ever watch the beacon of a lighthouse shine into the darkness? As it guides ships to safety offering hope to anyone in its path. I feel our donors are like those lighthouses, offering beacons of hope to the children of Ghana. We received very good news this summer. The District Assembly in Amasaman, the regional  government, is […]

  • The Results Are In!

    The Results Are In!

      I can remember my excitement when the Sarasota Community Foundation announced the 2015 Giving Challenge. This was an opportunity for all Ghanaian Mothers’ Hope board members and volunteers to get involved and create a campaign for our newest collaboration to help mothers in Ghana called Water Mamas. Everyone was eager to participate. Our goal was to raise $1,250 […]

  • Akramaman Reading Camp

    By Mr. Seth Agyakwa In Ghana, one problem we normally encounter in the public school is lateness to school. During reading camp, the same pupils and teachers, who normally report to school late, are always very punctual. Even though lessons start at 9:00 am, by 8:00 am all are present. This is not because of […]

  • Why Do I Come Here Year After Year?

    I thought deeply about this question as I packed three suitcases with school supplies, water filters, children’s blankets and pillowcase dresses getting ready to leave the US. Then I packed three more suitcases for the team that is arriving next week and pondered some more. Why do I leave my family and all the comforts […]

  • Sixty Water Mamas and So Many Babies

    By Deborah Albert So far, so good! The experience so far has been way beyond my expectations. I came as a newcomer to West Africa, and what better country to first visit. As expected, I was a bit nervous when I first arrived in Accra, and my biggest hope was that I didn’t get sick […]

  • THEN A MIRACLE HAPPENED!

    By Debi Frock, Founder/Executive Director I just landed in Ghana yesterday. The sights, sounds and smells brought back a flood of beautiful memories as soon as I stepped off the plane into the sunlit sky. Each year when I return it feels like I never left. The flight was longer than usual; going from Washington, DC, […]

  • In Search of Clean Water by Debi Frock

    I love to take photos, especially photos of water falls. Unfortunately, the most beautiful falls are not easily accessible from a car window. This week Scott, my husband, and I are in the UP- Upper Peninsula of Michigan. This part of the state is on Lake Superior and gets 30 feet of snow a year. It […]
