Katerina Fluharty: Hope for Ghana

Katerina Fluharty, a student attending Indiana University of Pennsylvania and preschool teacher, will travel to Ghana, Africa to build shelters and schools for children in Ghana.  She will be volunteering in orphanages with the organization Projects Abroad. Katie will spend five weeks in Ghana living with a host family and learning about their culture and customs.  Katie wants to help the children of Ghana because she believes that where you live in the world should not determine how important you are as a human being and that all kids should have a safe place to live and go to school.

With the Ebola virus spreading throughout Africa, orphanages have seen an increase in children with no place to go. Katie will be working with other Projects Abroad volunteers to provide medicine, teach hygiene, and perform health procedures for children. Katie hopes to give these children a brighter tomorrow, provide the materials and resources they need for survival, and show them her love and support.

If you would like to help Katie and the children of Ghana, you can purchase a t-shirt here. 100% of the profits from Hope for Ghana’s t-shirt sale go directly to medical and hygiene supplies, books, shoes, and clothes for the children of Ghana. This sale is open to anyone who wants to help Katie and who can pick up a shirt from her. She hopes that her t-shirts will raise money for the children of Ghana and get the message out about the day-to-day difficulties that people face around the world.
