Freer International Fellow in Community Development

Handi Outreach Home
North Accra, Ghana

Aims of the Fellowship

I was assigned to work in a women and children's shelter within the local community, as well as meet weekly with other non-profit organizations and non-governmental organizations to try to collaborate ideas and plan events to help the rural communities within Ghana. In addition, I tutored children between the ages of 5 to 18 and educated women on various problems that developing countries face (HIV/AIDS, domestic abuse, access to adequate healthcare, etc.).
