HOPE AND SERVICE TO MANKIND FOUNDATION
(Hope for Rural Dwellers)
There are a number of other community initiatives that we are involved in.
Hope and Service to Mankind Foundation is involved in initial relief work and assisting aid agencies. Through our local contacts we have continued with rural Library and Clinic building for the poor communities who do not have the means to build for themselves (monetarily or physically). We work in close conjunction with community leaders to assess the most critical needs and then act accordingly.
We are currently managing to build libraries and clinics in 10 rural communities in Ghana with the able support of volunteers (dependent on volunteer numbers). They are simple and rustic structures typical of construction. The work is sometimes challenging but always rewarding and offers an amazing insight into rural Vilanculos as well as the chance to meet and form working relationships with members of the local community.
Other building projects that we undertake include refurbishment at the Pre-schools, Primary School, Senior Secondary and Technical Schools as well as K.V.I.P Projects and community center, such as new classrooms and amenities guided by the experienced Project construction team, including foundation laying, mixing cement, brick laying and brick making, and painting. Volunteers contribute to the success of our aim by helping in all aspects from building the actual library to supplying books and constructing furniture.
