Religious Youth Service

Africa Rising Service Project in Accra, Ghana

The Religious Youth Service has been active in Ghana since 1992, so during the January 13 - 25, 2004 project the focus was on participants from Accra, the capital. Thirty-five participants from four nations id cleaning and offered personal care to hospital patients.

The learning aspect of RYS included presentations by distinguished experts in the fields of education, religion, and medicine. Also included were basic RYS team-building exercises.

This interreligious youth community bonded during their daily experiences of eating together, serving the needs of patients at the Pantang Psychiatric Hospital Adecta, cleaning the environment and meeting with patients.

Also worthy of reflection was cleaning done at Weija Communicable Disease Hospital, where leprous women and men received food, gifts and songs of peace from the participants.

The project was carried out in cooperation with the Global Evangelical Church of Ghana. Follow-up efforts are being made to institutionalize RYS as a means of networking NGOs in Africa for interreligious action.
