In the future, I want to be…

KickStart Ghana is a UK-registered charity that aims to ensure that the people of the Volta Region, Ghana, can fulfill their potential and have every opportunity to succeed. Volunteer coordinator David Coles shares a project he recently did with the children. 

One of the lessons at the KickStart Ghana summer school focused on aspiration setting. Our volunteers led the children on a creative session where they designed posters and diagrams detailing their thoughts on the future, both personally and from a career perspective.

When they had finished they had to present back to the class what they had created and why. We found that the children really engaged well with this task and we were really pleased with the wide range of potential opportunities they had given consideration to.
