28-year-old Stephanie Gregoriou became interested in social work in 2013. She traveled for a month to Ghana in Africa for volunteer work, and ever since, she has visited every year and has lived there for a total of more than six months.
During her time in the African country, Stephanie has taught in schools, helped poor children to finish school or college, provided both manual and financial aid to the creation and renovation of 3 schools, provided water filters to communities that were in need, worked in clinics, and much more. She has also given presentations in schools in Limassol on volunteerism and, in cooperation with these schools, has sent a significant amount of aid to this country.
In August 2016 therefore, Stephanie organised a worldwide online fundraising campaign to help construct a borehole in Oboyan village, in eastern rural Ghana. The project was completed in September 2016, and today, the borehole provides clean water daily to 1500 people who previously did not have access to clean drinking water.
