The roots of Isaac’s Dream were first planted when Robyn went on a medical mission trip to Ghana, Africa in the summer of 2016. One of the young men who was part of the group in Ghana that assisted the medical team was Isaac Ayensu.
Isaac has a dream to come to the United States to study photography and videography, but he also has another dream – to give the children of Ghana something he was once given, a chance. Isaac never knew his father and was orphaned at the age of eight when his mother died, forcing him to live on the streets and fight for the basic needs in life: food, clothing and shelter.
After a few years of homeless life, a family took Isaac in, where not only his primary needs were met, but he also received an education. This unselfish act of love has taken a hold of Isaac. He would like to gain his education in the States and then return to Ghana to give back to his community, working with Isaac’s Dream full time.
Although Isaac’s visa was denied a few times, he was still able to pursue his education in Ghana. This was the first step of Isaac’s Dream, but through other experiences, Robyn and Joe were determined to dream bigger. When they discovered this village where Robyn had treated numerous people, where they never had a school they, felt the need to raise funds and build a school in this precious community.
