We believe that one way of making a girl child from the slum community phenomenal is to give her the opportunity to explore, experience, appreciate different environment and cultural backgrounds.
The girls had an exciting opportunity to visit the two great Castles in Ghana, Cape Coast Castle and Elmina Castle. Many of these girls have never traveled outside the slum communities of Nima and Maamobi.
This was received as a welcome and inspirational news by the girls to see what is beyond their immediate surrounding and to get to know about the great castles and happenings in those castles many years back when the news was broke to them about the intending visit.
They were taking through the dungeons and were told about the historical happenings during the slave trade era. These girls were touched emotionally. Some could not even make it to certain places out of fear. Some shared tears as they thought of the situations during the time. They put themselves into the situation then.
