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.

The school’s Headteacher Ben has caught a bad case of malaria. He’s got so much to do at the moment to prepare for the reopening of the Brightlingsea Academy next week, malaria certainly wasn’t part of his plan. Although he would like to work through it we have told him to rest and become strong again for the weeks ahead. We are wishing him a speedy recovery. ... See MoreSee Less

This is one of our volunteers, Bee! When Bee came to Ghana with us last year she was always the first person to try a new type of food or get stuck in. She also has an incredible way of making people laugh! We want to give a massive shout out to all our volunteers who have helped us make Porridge and Pens the charity we are today. Small but mighty!!! ... See MoreSee Less

Teachers are sweeping and cleaning their classrooms today, getting ready to welcome back their students. These classrooms have been empty for far too many days. Laughter, joy and lots of noise is about to return in abundance (over 200 little people)! 🥰 ... See MoreSee Less
