As we embark on this journey to expand GapBuster's STEAM program to the Motherland (Ghana) we NEED your help to raise money to complete the washrooms and dining hall for Effiduase Methodist School. The students have no in-door plumbing or dining hall to eat breakfast or lunch. Your tax deductible dollars will go a LONG way and impact the life of our future scholars. Every child deserves a good education, but without adequate facilities it is difficult for a child to learn. Donate TODAY and make a lasting difference in a child's life.
Ground Breaking Ceremony in Effiduase Methodist School. In 2016, GapBuster conducted a needs assessment and realized it was necessary to build infrastructure such as washrooms and dining halls to host STEM-related programs for the public schools. We identified Effiduase Methodist Primary School to conduct our pilot program.
