Fruit Drop Project

Porridge and Pens’ Fruit Drop

Porridge and Pens’ most recent project is working with the All Nations Charity Home, a registered Non-Government Organisation in Kumasi that’s been open since 2003.

There are currently around 60 children living at the orphanage, all of whom have been abandoned by their families and communities.

Porridge and Pens works with the All Nations Charity Home by dropping off a fresh supply of fruit each week on a Saturday. The delivery includes enough fruit for each of the children to have a piece of fruit every day. Porridge and Pens’ weekly fruit drop is important to the children as it adds some variation and nutrition to diets which currently consist mostly of rice.

Currently we supply fruit grown in Ghana and sold by local traders, such as pineapples, bananas and oranges on a regular basis, and paw paw, mangos and watermelons when they are in season. Fruit such as apples and pears is imported to Ghana, making it very expensive.

Support our Fruit Drop. It costs £25 to give every child in the orphanage fruit for a week.

This is a typical urban slum. One of our Girl Power students lives in this settlement. In time, as she goes through her education she will be able to move away from an area like this and work towards creating a financially stable future for herself and her family. ... See MoreSee Less
