Georgina is a woman of wisdom and great character. Born in Eastern Ghana, she has been living and working in the Akatsi District for over 30 years.
She works for the environmental service, a branch of the Ghanaian government in Akatsi, and she is widely respected throughout the district for her work ethic and honesty. As a field worker, she is uniquely suited to lead the monitoring for over half of the Kekeli women. She knows the villages, the roads, and the people. And not only that–she can ride a motobike. This is a rarity in Ghana, especially for women.
Her hardworking spirit, knowledge of the district, and two-wheeled skills make her one of the most valuable Rural Health Collaborative members. As we move forward, we hope to show Georgina how much we value her by increasing her stipend, allowing her more time to spend monitoring the Kekeli women. This way we can ensure that the teaching in the villages continues, and is of high quality.
If you would like to begin giving monthly to support Georgina, please visit our donate page and make a recurring donation. To support our monitoring efforts throughout the year, the cost is about $100 per month. This covers the time of our monitors, fuel (which had become quite expensive over the past 6 months here), and communication costs.
