LIGHTING FOR LITERACY
Empowering youth to change the world with simple technology
Rae Williams of Los Gatos Morning Rotary helped
extend LFL's reach to Akim Tairu Orphanage in Ghana
Project partners: Rotary International, Los Gatos Union School District
(Silicon Valley STEM project), Akim Tairu Orphanage.
The Tairu Family Orphanage benefits 26 homeless children who have found refuge and a well lit home. Akim Tairu lives here in the United States and visits his mother in Ghana who runs the orphanage. They walk the streets of Accra, Ghana, and rescue homeless children to give them a better place to eat, sleep and learn.
