Kicking Off is an amazing charity currently working in Ghana using the power of football to empower communities.

Yesterday Akwaaba Volunteers traveled to to the village of Mpraeso with a squad of 16 u13 Street To School Soccer Boys to take part in Kicking Off's tournament. We were warmly welcomed, each boy was given a goody bag, a medical check where multivitamins, biscuits and bananas were given out as well as administering malaria checks to each boy and our coaches, we were supplied with water, a meal and a great game of football against Mpraeso's academy team. It was an unfortunate result for the Street To School Boys but the academy scored some fantastic goals and deserved the win.

Not only did our team have a great day but 500 girls and boys from local schools were invited to compete in a fantastic tournament!

Thankyou for inviting us to represent Accra, welcoming us and our boys so warmly, a great tournament and some even better football!

"Rugby is a game all about teamwork and support. To go forwards you must go backwards"

We were delighted to step onto the Ultimate Warriors Rugby Academy pitch today to see the boys training hard with Coach Eric.

One of our aims is to support community needs and to give underprivileged children better opportunities. Many of the boys don't have kits to train in and with bare feet so today we presented the boys with new Jerseys for training and new boots thanks to Sal's Shoes!
Enjoy boys!

Over the weekend we travelled to Kumasi, Ghana's second biggest city for a weekend of culture!

We were honoured to attend the wedding of local artist and designer Eric and his beautiful wife Mercia and enjoy a traditional ceremony full of love and dancing! Congratulations Mr & Mrs Taylor!

We also visited the Manhiya Palace, home to the Asante King, Otomfuo Nana Osei Tutu II. The Asante region is the largest and most powerful region in Ghana, home to Ghana's gold, the origin of Kente fabric and the twi language.

We were particularly inspired by Yaa Asantewaa, a woman who fought like a man. One of the most influential women in Ghanaian history, chosen by the Kings to lead the battle against the British who vowed to fight till the last person falls on the battlefield. She protected her kingdom and the golden stool when the men were too afraid to stand up and fight.

Thinking of volunteering? Here is why you should book today!

So you have thought about travelling abroad and have the intention of doing something good to contribute to the worldwide effort aiming to make the world a better place. People all over the world from gap year students to retired personnel are embarking on adventures around the world volunteering on various projects to help others in need. But why are so many people choosing to volunteer?

First and foremost it feels great to give back, experience a new culture and build your CV whilst doing so. Your confidence will grow, as will your social network and you may even get the opportunity to learn a new language. You will become independent, become a responsible and conscious traveller, you'll become great at budgeting, try new food, become more grateful and share your knowledge and skills to those less fortunate than yourself and you'll make friends for life!

Sound good? Send us an email to start your volunteering journey!

The 2017 World Malaria Report shows that there has been a plateau in the impact of malaria treatment in Ghana and across Africa. With only 54% of people using bednets - this means almost half of people who should be sleeping under the nets are not doing so!

With Christmas fast approaching you can get in the spirit of giving.

When you buy a beautiful handcrafted (in Ghana) bracelet from www.no2malaria.com we will give a treated mosquito net to a family in need in our community.

Akwaaba Volunteers are delighted to be the newest partner of Shoprite Ghana. 

Today we took a team of management staff from Shoprite to our Underprivileged Childrens Centre to make a donation of material for school uniforms, a freshly prepared lunch of Jollof and Chicken for all the children and staff as well as food and drinks to support the schools feeding programme. 

A huge thankyou to Shoprite from the Akwaaba team and UCC staff! We look forward to the future.Image attachmentImage attachment

For anyone with old shoes please continue supporting the amazing work Sals shoes are doing across the world!

A week ago we were devestated by the loss of a friend, a brother, a mentor, a role model and one of Ghana's greatest, Robert Kofi Mintah. We wear this shirt with pride, to remember your smile, your kindness, your dancing, your football skills and everything that you taught us. We will endeavour to make you proud every day, shine bright up there. Rest in peace Striker, you will always be in our hearts.

Congratulations to the Rising Stars of Africa Captain James Kumah and team for winning your tournament in Benin, Striker would be proud of you all and a huge Thank you to Josh Woodcock and Beth Woodcock for your thoughtful donation for the boys.

Did you know 1 in 4 children in Ghana live in poverty? This equates to 3.65 million children in the country.

1 in 10 children in Ghana live in extreme poverty. This means that 1.2 million children are living in households that are unable to provide food for these children to eat.

These families living in poverty earn less than 792GHS per year, this is the equivalent to £148.

Join us as a volunteer to help us brighten the future of the next generation through our projects and help them to reach out of poverty.
