In 2007, This Is New Africa (TINA) and Wood World Mission Charity started a school in Akusombo with just a handful of students. What began as an Orphanage is now a thriving school with over 200 students being supported by the organisation.
National Builders day was to encourage the diaspora community to give back to society. The Volunteers were at Akosombo School to paint the school and interact with the pupils and inspire them.
There was also an exciting boat ride and tour of the beautiful Akosombo landscape fused with party in the bus and lots of networking.
