Thank you for clicking on our fundraising page! If that video didn't draw you in, then hopefully this letter will show you what we stand for here at Exponential Education.
Exponential Education started with a mission to help address educational inequality in Ghana. Over the years we have worked closely with universities, government officials, and community members to develop the best and most needed programs for the communities we operate in. These conversations have lead us to develop two gender empowerment programs Girls Leadership, Empowerment, Action Program (GirlsLEAP) and Boys for Positive Change (BPC). These programs were created from suggestions from our students who were concerned with the treatment of young girls in Ghana and saw how gender inequality can affect the educational outcomes of children. GirlsLEAP and BPC provide safe spaces for young women and men to discuss issues around gender, gender roles, and equips them with skills to become agents of change.
What started as a backyard pilot program has transformed into a full-fledged operation. Currently, Exponential Education has a local Ghanian staff of 8 on the ground and affects the lives of over 500 children directly and 5,000 community members indirectly every year.
This year we are aiming to raise $8,000 USD through combined fundraising platforms in order to expand our programs. These funds will go directly to supporting our programs on the ground and helping us have a greater impact next year.
For those of you who have supported us over the years, you have watched our students grow, read their letters, and see their interviews and success stories. This money empowers them not only to finish school but now also to gain crucial leadership and vocational skills.
If you can, please support our cause and donate today. We understand that not everyone can donate, and are therefore always looking for contributions in other ways, including technical training, volunteering, or additions to the board. Also, sharing with friends or family helps us tremendously to spread awareness about our programs and cause.
Please donate and let us know if you would like a tax-deductible receipt in return.
Thank you for being a crucial part of our organization’s growth. It's donors like you that help keeps our organization growing and our students learning.
