Behind the Project

The Idea

Our project team - Emily, Robin, Marvin, Yasin, Sara and Karen - visited the children's home "Potter's Village" in Dodowa, Ghana, for four weeks from September to October 2021 and were able to witness with their own eyes the happiness, but also the difficult living situation of the children and young people at the children’s home in Dodowa. All proceeds and donations from the event "Dodowa meets Solbad" will directly go to "Potter’s Village" in Dodowa and thus contribute to improving the living conditions of the children and young people of the children's home.

Behind the Project

Our Goal

TuS Solbad Ravensberg supports the event "Dodowa meets Solbad" as an important starting point for the promotion of intercultural exchange. The event takes place within the framework of a long-term partnership with the children’s home "Potter’s Village" in Ghana, for which TuS Solbad Ravensberg - together with the city of Borgholzhausen – is planning different events in the upcoming years. These pursue a twofold goal: On the one hand, all proceeds and donations of the annually planned events are intended to sustainably improve the living conditions of the children and young people in "Potter’s Village" in Ghana. On the other hand, TuS Solbad Ravensberg hopes that the series of annual charity events will help to create space for young people from different cultures and social backgrounds in Borgholzhausen.

The Team

Our project team was in Ghana for a few weeks in the fall of 2021, where they gained insights into the lives of children and young people from the children's home "Potter's Village" in Dodowa, Ghana. Information on the team members will follow shortly.
