Ghana Mission Trip:






“Making an impact that matters was the goal of Rotary D6400 humanitarian mission to Ghana,” says team leader and DGDN Kim Spirou. A district multi-club team of 15 Rotarians and volunteers tackled projects in all of Rotary’s area of focus with an emphasis on transforming communities through water, education/literacy, healthcare/disease prevention and economic development projects.

Water is a life force that affects human health as no other element on earth. In fact, it is estimated that a child somewhere in the world dies from a water borne illness every 21 seconds. On this mission, seven rural villages were gifted with mechanized bore drilled water wells providing clean, potable water for drinking, cooking and bathing. Now girls who used to have to walk long distances to fetch water and often miss school can attend school regularly and use that time for study and family activities. Children will no longer die of waterborne illnesses and the overall health and well being of these communities will be dramatically improved thanks to Rotary.

Education is the key to breaking the cycle of poverty. In Ghana, many schools have deteriorated and fallen into serious disrepair making some school buildings unusable and often hazardous.  On this trip the team constructed a brand-new primary school and completely transformed two other village schools. Each school was provided with a full set of textbooks for all grades and subjects, new desks and each student received a new school uniform and a backpack filled with school supplies toiletries and a toy. The team also distributed 450 Days for Girls menstruation kits to ensure girls could attend school more regularly and graduate.

On the economic development front, the team provided 160 new sewing machines to destitute single mothers and enrolled them in Rotary’s “Sewing Seeds of Hope” apprenticeship program sparing them a life in the sex trade. Each apprentice is paired with a seamstress mentor for a year, and they learn to sew—a highly marketable skillset. In fact, many of the girls in this program have been hired into the shops in which they apprenticed. Thanks to the “magic of Rotary” these moms and their babies have bright futures!”

Access to health care is limited in much of Ghana’s rural areas. Villagers in the impoverished region of Subinso have had to travel long distances to reach the nearest health care centre– a 40-minute drive away. Most villagers cannot afford the cost of transportation so sadly patients needing care did not receive treatment and many succumbed to their illnesses. In 2022, our Rotary team raised enough funds to construct a health care clinic and the Ghana health department has assigned nurses and a mid-wife to run the clinic and provide a wide range of health care services and disease prevention information and strategies to villagers.

This year the team raised enough funds to expand the clinic and added a 3-room birthing/maternity wing and the Rotary Club of Harrow purchased a birthing table for the delivery room. No longer will women in labour die needlessly due to complications in childbirth and infant mortality rates will dramatically decrease again thanks to Rotary and our commitment to maternal/newborn health care and disease prevention.

The team also purchased and distributed 500 mosquito bed nets to protect pregnant and nursing mothers and their children from the deadly scourge of malaria – Africa’s #1 killer.  And 750 pairs of eyeglasses were dispensed providing the precious gift of sight to many villagers in these rural areas.  Thanks to donations from local physiotherapy clinics the team delivered and fitted patients with orthopedic braces, canes, walkers and crutches. Plans are in the works to embark on another Rotary mission to Ghana in the Fall of 2025. For information on joining the team contact team leader Kim Spirou (
