In the spring of 2013, Barbara met Fred Benneh for the first time while doing a home stay in his village of Senase, Ghana. This was Barbara’s first time being exposed to the kinds of conditions people in these rural villages live in, and in particular the conditions of the schools. Seeing the obstacles Fred had to overcome, to get the kind of education he had received, and to being the successful young man he was now, Barbara was motivated to find a way to give other children in Senase the opportunity to find a better life through education.
