Water for Dodome Awuiasu (Fall 2011-12)

Ruby Turok-Squire lives in Cambridge, England and is currently studying Composition and English Literature at Oberlin College. In 2011, she volunteered as a teacher in the village of Dodome Awuiasu, Ghana and since leaving, has maintained a connection with the village. She is committed to helping the community move forward in any way that she can. To date, Ruby, in conjunction with the SmartKids Foundation (, has raised over $5,000 in order to support two of the students that she met in Ghana to attend a better school. Through this next project, she hopes to continue to learn about how to organize charitable efforts in the most effective and sustainable ways.
