Education 4 Ghana

Education for Ghana is created to help support 17 wonderful children go to school.  If you are not aware, I was in Ghana for 5 months and in my time there, I came across these amazing children.  They are from a very small village in Kasoa and going to school is impossible without financial support.  

I made a commitment to the children and their parents to help them go to school so that they will have an education and a better future. Spending my time in Ghana I fell in love with the culture and the people.  I am committed to visit Ghana at least once a year to follow up with the school and to ensure their success.  

All of the funds from this page will go directly to the kids.  As I mentioned before, I made a promise to help these families so I will be also investing a lot of time and money on these children, but your support will be greatly appreciated.  This is how the program will work:

1.  Choose one of these wonderful 17 children.  Yes I know, it's hard.  But doing so will create a connection that I would love to encourage.  I have the story behind their lives and as I visit them once a year I can send pictures to the sponsors, collect any gifts to take to them and so on.

2.  There are 3 school terms in a year in Ghana.  It's $71 per term and it will be my dream to find a sponsor that can help each child for as long as they can so that the families can have peace of mind.

3.  The $71 covers school fees, transportation fee (to and from their village), and feeding fee.  Unfortunatley it does not cover the school supplies or text books.  Keep in mind $1USD equals 3 Ghana Cedis.  Can you imagine how hard this is for a poor family in Ghana?  You see children as young as 7 years old selling stuff on the street to be able to collect money to go to school.  
((( This only adds up to $17.75 a month))) Totally worth it for these babies...  

Please, please consider sponsoring one of these children.  The next term begins in May so if you would like more information please send me a message. :-) 

Thank you,

And God Bless You!
