New Blood

Last year, Erin Nolan came out from NYPD and supported a trip around Ghana on the hunt for new talent. In that tour we spoke to over 1000 young people. From which 100 were invited to the Fly Me Day, and flew, learning more about aviation, health and engineering. From that day, seven girls were offered two in the workshops for selection for training in health, aviation and engineering. Five arrived and next month four will begin their training.

The four girls on the left of this image, from the left, Beatrice, Freda, Deborah and Kate are all excited about starting a four year programme of learning skills that will enable them to take enhanced health and associated education to the rural dwellers around the Lake Volta. Upon successful completion of their training, they are assured a job, and a release programme to enable them to support Medicine on the Move's outreach to the rural people of Ghana.

Our heartfelt thanks go out to Erin, who made the trip to select these girls possible, and to the many of you who follow and support the training of the young women who power the outreach that changes lives, one flight at a time...

Beatrice, Freda, Deborah and Kate will be sharing the girls hostel with Emmanuella, Juliet and Lydia, and I am sure will be featuring in many posts in the coming months!
