Lamp For Future Life (LFFL) provides local and international students with opportunity to have on-the-job training either as part of their academic requirements or improving career opportunities. Students from around the world are given this opportunity to have firsthand experience and a working knowledge as they take trainee/mentee positions in variety of job disciplines. “We partner host communities who carefully select institutions based on reputation as able to provide on the job training and encourage international understanding in cross-cultural settings while contributing to community development. We have place for undergraduate and post-graduate students in various intern positions”
LFFL is currently calling for volunteers to help in on-going Projects which are the H2O project, Sanitation Project, Hygiene Education Project, Environmental Education and Awareness and Organic Farm Projects.
In the H2O project, volunteers/interns will work with community members to improve sustainable access to safe drinking water, basic sanitation and accommodation. LFFL seeks to provide safe and portable drinking water for rural communities in the Ajumako Enyan Essiam District and Kasoa area in the Central Region. Currently, the remote communities drink from a contaminated water source, as they primarily walk to a nearby stream . “We aim to build boreholes, wells and provide hands-on rain water harvest for safe drinking water. Therefore we have partnered LIFESAVER systems ltd, who design specific water filtration systems for third world applications just like we have in Ghana. LIFESAVER water filters use LIFESAVER systems ltd patented ultra-filtration technology to filter out 99.999% of waterborne pathogens from water including bacteria, cysts, parasites and even viruses”
