How it Started

Sarah Rapp, the founder of ‘how to Be global’, was in Ghana, where she visited Jamestown, probably the poorest neighborhood in Accra.

She explains: “Seeing these thousands of human beings who are just like you and me with literally nothing, broke my heart into pieces. I feel everyone just accepts that Africa is a poor and/or underprivileged continent, but only a very few people actually attempt to jump in and make a difference.

I don’t want to be the tourist who feels sorry the day I see these things — I want to make a change! That’s why I started this fundraising project. I want to make sure that these amazing girls and boys have the chance to go to the only school in Jamestown, get food and education, which empowers them to shape a better future for themselves and the entire community.”
