When Caroline Campbell, a teenager from Baton Rouge, Louisiana, first traveled with Global Leadership Adventures to Ghana in 2012, little did she know that she would later use her experiences there to compete for a prestigious college scholarship.
Campbell, who is planning to attend Tulane University next fall, had to create a project that demonstrated an issue that she is passionate about. After volunteering at Father’s House International in Ghana, she decided to highlight the inspirational “Great Eight” boys that she met there. The opportunity was “of huge importance to me,” says Caroline. “The Great Eight still inspire me to this day, even though I first met them two years ago.”
Father’s House International rescues and houses children who have been enslaved to work in the fishing villages along Lake Volta- giving them a fresh start and a chance to live full lives. Learn more about their incredible work and the amazing transformations experienced by these boys by viewing Caroline’s project here.
