    Godwin

    Ghana

    Godwin was orphaned after the death of his grandparents in 2001. He lives with his fourteen year old sister in a small shack with no running water or electricity. Born with physical disabilities, Godwin has lived a tough life and has often turned to using his disability as a means to beg for money to feed his family. Upon entering Mawuvio's School, Godwin gained the self-confidence he needed to excel educationally despite his disabilities. Godwin has emerged as a leader amongst his peers and now aspires to become the goal keeper for Ghana's Black Star football team.
