In the real spirit of Valentine’s Day, Love Rocks raised money and bought some much needed supplies for Country-side Children’s Welfare Home, an orphanage in Bawjiase, a village close to Accra. While there, Ama D., Ama A., Eben and Selasi talked to the kids about their dreams for the future. I’d like to share them with you.

I want to be doctor. I want to help heal sick people
– Beatrice, 12
In future I want to act as good as Jackie Appiah. That’s why I’ve joined the drama club
– Elizabeth, 14
Science fascinates me. I always want to know how things came about. I dream of being a doctor
– Emmanuel, 11
I want to help sick people get better. I want to be a nurse
– Grace, 12
When I grow up I want to be a very big figure in trade. I want to export Ghana’s finest goods to other countries
– Mary, 13
I studied Agriculture in senior high. I’m hoping to gain admission to the university so I pursue it. I want to take over the farm at the orphanage so that we can start producing for commercial use. Not just to the capital city but to the country as a whole.
 – Sunday Godwin, 19
I want to be a nurse
– Emmanuella
I want to go to school
– Georgina Larbi, 5 (new to orphanage, was in her school uniform when we visited and she was excited about going to school)
In future I want to be a bank manager, so that I can manage your money for you (Ama D.)
– Mike, 8 years
I don’t know what I want to be yet, but I like science and English and I enjoy singing, but I dream of being a great person in future
– Abigail, 12
All over Ghana, there are kids just like these, with dreams and aspirations and each of them deserves a chance to make them real.
