Inspiration - Andrew Adansi-Bonnah

Andrew is an 11-year old from Ghana in West Africa. He was moved by the pictures he saw on television of children suffering in Somalia. A place where almost 30,000 children have died over the past three months from starvation. After consulting with the UNICEF and the UN, Andrew set up Save Somali Children from Hunger to raise 20 million Ghanaian cedis — or about 13 million US dollars. His goal is to do this during the 11 weeks of his school holiday, going door to door asking for donations. Did I mention he is eleven? How many eleven year olds do you know, who would come up with this dream, much less give up their school holiday to make it happen? Folks, there is hope for the future. And his name is Andrew Adansi-Bonnah.  So far, he has raised about $6,500. Read more about Andrew HERE and HERE.
