Akwaaba! ("Welcome" in Twi, a local language in Accra.) Sophie and Sheena have arrived in Ghana and are getting ready to settle into their new home away from home. These first few weeks have been exciting for them to build closer relationships with some of of our local partners, who will be helping us connect with communities before piloting our Sugar Daddy Awareness Program. Notably, Ms. Lila Djaba, founder of Lila's Childcare Foundation, has been a great resource for us. She also serves on our board of directors, and you can read more about her here!
While the Ghana Team is getting things rolling in Accra, our team in Seattle has been hard at work with fundraising. Peddler Brewing in Ballard helped us to host a successful event this week. Thanks to everyone who came out to support us! And also a big thank you to Bri Navarro who designed our logo, shirts, stickers, business cards, etc. Check out her portfolio!
