Me Firi Ghana with the support of the Ghana High Commission UK & Tullow Oil, presents the Wam Campaign 2011: providing young people with exciting creative opportunities to use their gifts and talents to support the lives of orphans and vulnerable children living in Ghana.
WAM is an acronym which stands for What About ME?’ to challenge young people to become leaders and achieve more when helping others… ‘It’s NOT about me?”.
We set out to achieve our goals through volunteering, by making it easier and more accessible for young people to engage, relate and volunteer whilst on holiday; targeting the Christmas season, as it represents the period with the highest number of travellers from around the world venturing to Ghana.
This year, the WAM volunteer programme includes a range of activities for orphans and vulnerable children aged from 3-11 years old.
It is free to participate and we have made the days flexible and adaptable for anyone who wants to help, be it for an hour, a day or a week, to help make volunteering convenient and accessible.
Date: 27th- 31st December 2011
Location: Family Outreach Centre based in Accra (Spintex)
Event: Daily volunteering activities between 9am -4pm.
- Ice breaker day with facilitation games
- Creative learning day – (arts, music, drama, literacy and numeracy).
- Sports day
- A trip to the Cinema.
As part of our volunteer engagement and enrichment for the children, we encourage you to also contact us and get involved in any way possible. You too can volunteer with us or equally spread the word to increase and support the WAM Campaign.
Our journey will be captured through video blogging and imagery by the 2011 Ghana UK Based Achievement Award Winner Ernest Simons and documented through interviews and a number of online and offline media platforms to increase awareness. Please also visit our website www.wamcampaign.org for more information.
Throughout 2012, we plan to expand the campaign though fundraising, events, and conferences so that young people can proactively be part of the WAM Campaign, stay connected to Ghana and help become an asset for the development of Ghana.
