What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Young children in rural Ghana suffer from a lack of quality education, recreational opportunities, clean water and sanitation facilities. Through a five-year continuing partnership with the University of Utah medical school and local tribal elders in Barekuma, Ghana, we are helping the community help itself with collaborative and sustainable development. With this project, life expectancy is being extended through adaption of proper nutrition practices, AIDS/malaria prevention, and education.

How will this project solve this problem?

- Construction of new schools and soccer pitches - Building clean water and sanitation facilities - Developing principles on improving yield of local crops and stimulating economy - AIDS/malaria prevention, screening and education

Potential Long Term Impact

- Improved life expectancy - Enhanced income potential - More sustainable living - Lower infant death rate
