Project Report | Jan 7, 2014
Kobby goes to school

By Benjamin Kusi | Country Director

Kobby
Kobby

In 2012, Self-Help International came into contact with Kobby (5) who had lost both parents at the age of two. Since then, he has been under the care of his aging grandmother, Agartha. He was visibly malnourished at the time and was put on the SHI feeding program. After being given high quality protein maize and vitamins, Kobby’s conditions improved tremendously.

Agartha confessed that although she is a strong believer in God, there were times when she feared for her grandson’s life.  Thanks to SHI, regular intake of quality protein maize and vitamins restored her hope for Kobby.


At the start of the 2013/2014 school year, Kobby enrolled in Kindergarten at the Worapong Basic School. Agartha tells SHI that the feeding program is what launched “Satellite Kobby” into orbit. Because of his improved health condition, Agartha believes Kobby will be able to experience many other places and things in his life. He has already promised to buy her a tractor for her farm when he is older.

Thanks to your generosity, Kobby and many other children in Ghana will be able to live a healthier life. With your help, we are able to work towards our mission “to alleviate hunger by helping people help themselves”. Thank you for your support.
