Thank You Axim Community!!

It takes a whole village (municipality) to support a community organization! Western Heritage Home, our partner NGO that coordinates multiple projects in the Axim area, enjoys the positive regard of the Axim community. Recently, Barbara Davis, the Home Mother, Isaac Bentil, the Managing Director of WHH and James Kainyiah, Chairman of the Board, tallied up the gifts received by the Children’s Home in the last few months from local churches, mosques, businesses, and individuals. Ghana Together is grateful for the mostly financial donations from Americans---simple to wire, easy in terms of customs regulations, and supports local Axim businesses. However, it’s really great to know that local folks are pitching in, as well.

We thought you might like to see the list! And oh, the frisbees are a gift from kind Americans---an exciting new sport for the children.
