Ben and Julie saw opportunities to improve education in rural Ghanaian schools by making school fun for the kids, giving the teachers some visual aids, and lighting the classrooms. Those needs led to the idea of a playground that could generate electricity from children at play. Empower Playgrounds, Inc. is a non-profit company working to make that dream a reality.

One additional purpose of this web site is to create a place where Julie can post her genealogy research. She worked for many years on the line of her great-grandmother, Martha Telle Cannon. She has also researched many other direct and collateral family lines and has written histories for some of these people. Click the Genealogy button below to view her work.
