Yesterday, September 6th, 2023, a group of youth volunteers from Pentecost University embarked on a heartwarming mission to give back to society. As part of their Seed Project, these dedicated students donated essential items to the Happy Life Orphanage Home in Kwashieman, Accra, Ghana.
The initiative was sparked by their African Studies Lecturer, Dr. Chris Ampadu, who fervently believes in the power of giving and always encourages his students to contribute whatever they can to society. Understanding the importance of making a positive impact, the students were divided into groups, and each group was tasked with finding a way to give back.
In an exceptional show of collaboration, Group 17 and Group 23 decided to pool their resources to the Happy Ophanage Home. The volunteers donated food items, toiletries, and other essentials that would greatly benefit the young residents of the home.
Upon arrival at the orphanage, the volunteers were warmly welcomed by the children and staff. They spent time interacting with the orphans, offering words of encouragement together. The atmosphere was filled with joy and gratitude as they impacted the lives of the vulnerable children through their actions.
“I am doing my charity work today, helping the underprivileged from community to community as a result of the seed project I did years back at Pentecost University through Dr. Chris Ampadu. I was happy to see these students doing the same through the hands of the same lecturer who introduced me to giving. I will ensure these young volunteers don’t end it here, but will collaborate with them to impact more lives”. Said Maxwell Odonkor, Founder and Executive Director of World Inspiring Network.
The team from Pentecost University intends to continue their philanthropic efforts and hopes to inspire others to join them in their journey of giving back. Their project serves as a reminder that even the smallest acts of kindness can have a significant impact on those in need.
The Happy Life Orphanage Home expressed their heartfelt appreciation for the support they received from the Pentecost University volunteers. They emphasized the importance of community involvement in improving the lives of orphaned children and acknowledged the students’ exceptional commitment to making a difference.
As the students returned to their campus, they left with a renewed sense of purpose and a deeper understanding of the power of giving. Their act of kindness serves as a shining example for other young individuals to follow, proving that together, we can create a better future.
In a world that could use more empathy and compassion, these young volunteers from Pentecost University have shown us that age is no barrier to making a positive difference. Their effort is a wake-up call to all of us to spread kindness with the little we have wherever we go.
