I participated in the medical volunteer program in Ghana, where I volunteered at Asokwa Children’s hospital. They rotated me around the different departments of the hospital: emergency ward, taking vitals, pharmacy, and lab, so I got to experience a little bit of everything. It was definitely a great learning experience, and I honestly feel like […]
Ghana, all in all, is an amazing country. Loads of friendly faces always smiling, and the people behind those smiles are always wanting to help. The city of Kumasi, with a population close to 2 million, is something I like to refer to as a city that never sleeps. It’s a busy place filled with […]

We all fall victim […]

The majority of my time on the project was […]

Our Empowering Young Mothers Initiative is focused on promoting positive behavioral change in young mothers, their immediate families and wider society. This group addresses the stigmatisation experienced by young mothers after they give birth, and the difficulty they experience taking care of themselves and their newborn, on the limited funds they have.
The Change Makers Ambassadors Club (CMAC) is a club aimed at 12 – 20 year old females from disadvantaged communities. Whilst our Empowering Young Mothers Initiative aims to ensure young mothers are equipped to overcome the difficulties experienced by teenage pregnancies, the CMAC was founded to ensure that young women make well-informed decisions so that they may not experience these same difficulties.
