WKU Students Start Non-Profit to Help Build Schools in Ghana

Dec 15, 2011

Bowling Green, Ky – During a recent Semester at Sea program, four WKU students were struck by a scene they encountered in a village in Ghana called Akatim. WKU Senior Sarah Hagan said the schoolhouse used by the children was "sticks holding up slabs of a tin roof with holes all through it." Hagan and the others decided they wanted to do something to help the children of Akatim, so they created a non-profit organization called The Senase Project, named after another village in Ghana they visited. She spoke to our Kevin Willis about the group, what it has already accomplished, and its goals.
