My Motivation

I think I can speak for a great many people when I say that although for a large part of my life it was somehow clear to me that I was living in a very privileged position, I nevertheless rarely consciously noticed and understood it. After Hannah first returned from Ghana, that outlook on life changed. It struck me that even someone like me (and every person reading this) can actually make a difference in this world. The way we all behave today determines the world of tomorrow, and in the end, we have to and want to live on this world for a long time to come, happily. But even though I enjoy working for Zusammen für Ghana e.V., there is a much bigger reason for it: The people on site, both the children without opportunities for education, and people like Antonio and Eric, who simply put a lot of energy and heart and soul into the project. I am infinitely grateful to all those involved in the project and it motivates me to continue every day.

My Qualification

As active members of the association in Germany, we are faced with different tasks and challenges than those members who are active in Ghana. While Antonio and Eric in particular are involved in the practical implementation of the construction in Ghana, we in Germany mainly take care of the structure of the association, the organization of the school construction and the donations.

Antonio and Eric have - unlike us - an education and many years of practical experience in what they do for the association. As young students, we ourselves do not yet have any training or completed studies that explicitly qualify us for the work in the association. We are clearly less experienced in our field of work than Antonio and Eric are. However, it is our daily motivation that drives us to give our best for the association at all times and to overcome challenges with great energy. The common vision of being able to open a school that will enable a better future for many students drives us every day anew to advance the association and the school construction. Since the founding of the association in 2019, we have been able to gather a lot of experience together, through which we have accumulated a lot of knowledge in different areas. This knowledge now helps us to be able to assess processes, avoid mistakes and organize the association. We are always open to criticism and suggestions, through which we can learn and improve. We learn by doing.
