Nine Rams on humanitarian trip to Ghana
TORONTO - For the third consecutive year, a group of dedicated Ryerson Rams student-athletes are traveling overseas on a humanitarian mission trip, volunteering in Ghana for two weeks.
The group of nine students are in Ghana to volunteer at a local child care centre. They will provide a service that will allow parents in the community to work during the day rather than take care of their children. Women in particular will be empowered to work, creating extra income to foster education and health.
The nine students on the trip are:
Ailish Forfar - Women’s Hockey - 5th Year - RTA Sport Media
Sydney Authier - Women’s Hockey - 3rd Year - Arts and Contemporary Studies
Greg Vukets - Men’s Volleyball - 1st Year - Psychology
Gillian Rossi - Women’s Soccer - 3rd Year - Early Childhood Studies
Kyle Stewart - Men’s Soccer - 5th Year - Master of Science in Management
Selena Benvenuto - Women’s Soccer - 2nd Year - Early Childhood Studies
Aaron Armstrong - Men’s Hockey - 4th Year - Business Management
Molly Peters - Women’s Volleyball - 1st Year - Creative Industries
Jordan D'Souza - Ryerson Athletics Volunteer Expereince Coordinator
Last year a group of seven students traveled to Cambodia to volunteer at local schools, run sports programs, and provide day care for working mothers with young children. In 2016, nine students went to Peru to help build a safe playground and volunteer at a local school.
