Volunteers support the children in their daily needs at the orphanage, helping them in their studies and guiding them. Volunteers will act as staff support to help with daily tasks that the local staff is overwhelmed to complete. The volunteer will also inspire the children by creating exciting activities for the children to do in their spare time, keeping them motivated and helping to create a safe and nurturing environment for the children to flourish.
David Kwesi Acquah founded Sankofa Mbofra Fie in 2006. David, shares a similar past with many of the children he serves. Growing up on the streets in Cape Coast, David dreamed of helping other kids like him once he got back on his feet. In 2005, he worked for a year at a children’s home in Belgium and returned to Ghana with his hard-earned savings and knowledge to start a children’s home of his own. He currently provides most of the financial support for Sankofa Mbofra Fie, directs the organization, and serves as a positive male role model for the 350 children in his care.
