On my second day of teaching at Nkyenennkyenen school Kofe and Porsche were brought to me, as I was the most senior teacher on the campus. Kofe was in incredible pain. He had egg shape lumps on his head, which had gone septic and were bleeding. It was obvious that even with my first aid experience I did not have the skills to treat and care for him.
Following my initial visit to Ghana, the next 6 months were a blur of fundraising activities. Firstly, I did some craft courses, set up a studio in my flat and began creating handmade gifts for sale. With so many worthy charities competing for donations now, I felt that if people were actually getting something in return for their donations, we could raise so much more.
