2014 KickStart Ghana review

What a year it has been for KickStart Ghana! Another successful summer school combing the best of Ghanaian teachers working alongside UK and Ghanaian volunteers. The ever popular reading club at St Cecilia school helping embed a love for literature amongst young Ghanaians. Dynamo FC has gone from strength to strength and other schools have continued to benefit from sporting equipment.

We also ran our first educational trip with the Essex Army Cadets, pairing up young people from the UK and Ghana to learn about each other and help create a new generation of global citizens.

In the UK we received funding from Total and The Youth Funding Network. We also had an incredible fundraiser, hosted by Zoe’s Ghana Kitchen, which raised over £3,000 and introduced lots of people to some yummy Ghanaian recipes and flavours. We recruited two new trustees and can’t wait to work with them next year.

Finally, we had our softball team continuing to take on the big boys in the charity softball league.

We’d like to thank our fundraisers, supporters, volunteers and partners for making 2014 a wonderful year for the charity. We have plans to make 2015 even bigger and better so watch this space.

Check out some of our favourite photos below for our year in review.
