The foundations founders
Mikaela Lindström & Elina Bergström
Experiences from our first trip to Ghana in 2008 are the basis for why we started the foundation Make a Difference. Because that's exactly what we want to do. We want to and we know that together we can make a big difference for many.
Our valuable board
Being able to experience the difference and all the personal encounters with children and families in Ghana is my biggest driver for our work. I look forward to working together to give families a safer future by building and operating the family center in Bobikuma.
The joy and satisfaction it gives to helping children and families in Ghana is my main driver. Our "small" project to build a family center in Ghana is also a wonderful challenge that I cannot refuse. The day we inaugurate the home on site in Bobikuma will be one of the best in my life.
It didn't take long to decide when the Foundation asked if I wanted to help create and maintain the website. Nowadays, I help the Make a Difference Foundation to create, maintain and create materials for the website. I am happy to be able to help make a difference in such a way.
Make a Difference is the perfect way for me to be able to apply my professional skills as an engineer to help vulnerable people outside Sweden. The foundation is small and efficient which makes the team extra personal. I found Make a Difference through Engineers Without Borders and I am grateful to be able to help make a difference.
