Project Zongo Telethon

Sun 10/06/19 Facebook Live Project Zongo telethon 10:00 AM – 10:00 PM

Three years ago, a law-student at Valparaiso University named Yusif Bandaogou asked Paul Schreiner to help him improve the lives of his community in the Zongos of Accra, Ghana (in West Africa). Yusif wanted to take his vision of a better life that he experienced in Valparaiso back to the Zongos by building three story, modern residences, with interior bathrooms and kitchens, each one being 550 square feet to displace the 175 square foot single rooms in which his family and neighbors had been occupying since the early 20th century. And so, Project Zongo was born.
