SaNTA's SHOE BOX
This is our first annual Christmas service project for our refugee families in Utah. We want to make Christmas ornaments and Christmas cards for those families whose lives have been impacted by war or some misfortune. We believe in the spirit of giving and showing love to one another. We would love to bring Christmas cheer to some of these families by making and donating a Christmas package we create together and deliver to them Dec 20-Dec 22. There is no limit to what you can make. Come help us make a different in the lives of the many refugee families.
We currently serve Dadome Primary secondary school in Mepe, Volta region of Ghana, and Mijomborni Primary School in Kenya. Our changemakers travel to these rural village schools and spend 7 days working on refurbishing classrooms through wall paintings, window and door repairs as well all general construction on buildings. We add a touch of art to their school buildings. With about a recorded 75% dropout rate from NICEF 2019 report, our goal with this project is to get as many children to gain a sense of belonging and pride in their schools and environment. Activities such as this one have been known to increase the retention rate by 25%. As this will give the children a sense of pride and ownership through their art on the buildings. Most artworks are educational and turn out to teach kids the power of expression. Painting is done by volunteers and the kids.
In collaboration with Dream feet Foundation, we collect and donate shoes, clothing, socks, and other materials kids need for school. These
items are placed in a community box to be delivered by Santa on Christmas day in the rural
regions of the Ashanti, Eastern, and Northern Regions where children have very little access to
modern facilities, proper clothing, and care. Santa visits less privileged kids who don’t even
dream of receiving a gift during Christmas. It’s a dream come true for these kids as gifts from
collected donations are given out during this festive season.
We are thrilled to announce the establishment of new playgrounds for children in Ghana and Kenya, aiming to create safe and joyful spaces for their growth and development. These playgrounds will provide countless opportunities for children to engage in active play, foster social interaction, and stimulate their imagination.
In collaboration with local communities, organizations, and generous donors, we have embarked on this initiative to address the need for accessible play areas in underserved regions. By installing well-designed play structures and equipment, we seek to promote physical fitness, enhance cognitive skills, and nurture social bonds among children.
These playgrounds will serve as vital hubs for children to unleash their creativity, explore their physical abilities, and build lifelong friendships. We believe that every child deserves the chance to play, learn, and thrive in a safe and inclusive environment.
Through this project, we aim to contribute to the overall well-being of children in Ghana and Kenya, supporting their holistic development. We express our gratitude to all the supporters and partners who have joined hands with us in making these playgrounds a reality.
Early LITERACY INTERVENTION
This project is geared towards bringing volunteers and taking them to rural areas to teach and
assist teachers and the community in rural areas. Text books, exercise books, stationery and
other educational tools are given out to kids and schools to aid education. We encourage the
children to write stories and practice creative writing. Some of these stories will be shared with
our donors to inspire the impact they make.
Computer Lab installation
There are 600 school children in Mepe-Ghana without access to technology. The school is on the grid, which makes it easy for us to install a computer lab. We intend to install 20 computers and 1 printer to serve the school's administration and students. We seek to close the digital divide in third-world countries. We provide an authentic learning experience with a good dose of dopamine. Volunteers will work with other organizations to supply the schools with 20 laptop/desktop computers with pre-installed software to teach and allow the children to interact with the hardware and learn about the software.
