Extend your Beauty Inside and Out
In an effort to raise funds for much needed medical supplies and basic necessities for my friend Paula’s upcoming trip to Ghana, Africa, she and the local charity All For Humanity have teamed up with myself and Miranda Martin, entrepreneur for Stella and Dot Jewellery.
All For Humanity is a group of caring and compassionate people who are motivated to assist children suffering economically, socially and emotionally in Ghana and Colombia. We work personally on the projects that we take on. We are not an organization that simply collects money and sends it overseas. We can guarantee that the work we do is in country and at a grass roots level to foster the change that will improve the living conditions of children. We are firm believers that a child’s chances in life shouldn’t depend so starkly on where they are born. We believe that all children should have the opportunity to fulfill their potential; to develop their talents, to work towards their goals, to have ambitions and a means to achieve them. We feel that we can always do more, if only by aiding one child at a time. The poverty these children face is more than just lack of money. It is also lack of opportunity. A child who does not have access to learning, family support, or the basic necessities of life is disadvantaged from the start. By supplying the required resources and developing the conditions that allow children to thrive we have the power to not only ensure their survival, but to open the doors for them to achieve something in life beyond mere subsistence. We prioritize our efforts so that those in greatest need have their needs met first. Instead of treating the symptoms of the problem by building more orphanages or simply shipping food, we work to cut at the roots of the problem, resulting in a future that embraces healthy, educated and most of all self-sufficient Africans.
