Faiza, Beatrice, Fayudatu and Gladys from Northern Ghana spent the day with us on Tuesday… sharing stories about life in Ghana, their families, their struggles to afford to stay in school and their future aspirations as they pursue university.

They are visiting Vancouver as part of a ‘For Our Daughters‘ tour supported by an organization called Create Change, founded by former YHS student Shannen O’Brian. Their message was powerful, their strength was palpable and their commitment and drive were inspiring.

If you wish to learn more and/or support education for girls in Ghana, Shannen would like to extend a complimentary ticket to all YHS parents, students and alum to a ‘For Our Daughters’ event at the Vogue Theatre on November 23 at 7 pm. If you wish to receive a ticket, please email or call Lynne Stanger at lynne_stanger@yorkhouse.ca or at 604.730.2406.
