Former beneficiaries give back to ROHC

Former beneficiaries of Rays of Hope Centre as one of their activities for the year 2019, engaged current beneficiaries in planting sweet potatoes for WEM Centre in Ayikuma. The aim of the exercise is to help reduce cost of food items for beneficiaries.

On 30th November, a group of former beneficiaries came to WEM Centre to clear a portion of the land and to plant sweet potatoes. Beneficiaries in WEM were engaged in the clearing of the land and planting. Together with the former beneficiaries, our beneficiaries had a lot of fun and the planting was done after about 3 hours.

We expect to harvest the potatoes in March 2020 and we look forward to more cooperation with the group of former beneficiaries. Overall, this day was a successful day of farming and the beneficiaries enjoyed working together with the former beneficiaries.

A big step forward; Graduation from Junior High School

We are happy and proud to announce the graduation of our Junior High School students; Harriet, Sarah and Gifty. The three girls have successfully completed their Basic Education and participated in the Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE).

The girl´s success becomes even more impressive when you look back to the beginning of their ROHC journey in 2014. Likewise most of our beneficiaries, Harriet, Sarah and Gifty got in touch with our Field and Reintegration Officer on the streets, not going to school but rather selling. Supported by their parents/guardians, they were willing to seize the chance for a brighter future and joined ROHC. The three girls started attending the pre-school in our First-Contact-Place (FCP) in Zongo Laka, Ashaiman for a year and were later enrolled into basic school.

Harriet stayed in Ashaiman for her basic education and attended the Golden Academy School. Sarah and Gifty attended the Mawuvio Outreach Programme in Ayikuma. They commuted to daily to school from our WEM Centre (Welfare-Empowerment-Mobility Centre). Within five years of determination and hard work, Harriet, Sarah and Gifty have completed their Basic Education and gained not only a great knowledge in school but also developed into independent, young women. Harriet, Sarah and Gifty came a long and difficult way but with their focus, own will and support they were able to succeed enormously. 

They are not just an enrichment for our society in general but also fantastic role models for our current and future beneficiaries. They are currently learning skills in sewing, beads making, decoration and catering as they await their BECE results.

We wish them the best of luck and hope that God´s blessings will continue to come down on them.
