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.

Aligned with President of the Republic of Ghana, Nana Akufo-Addo STEM initiative, Gapbuster expanded into Ghana and incorporated GapBuster Ghana as a Non-Government Organization. GapBuster Ghana hopes to address the need to increase girls entering the STEM fields, we decided to work in rural/village areas of the country targeting public schools only. Our goal is to expose the girl-child ages 11 to 17 to Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) as well as create STEM Centers in selected areas of the country. 

GapBuster plans to host cross-cultural exchange programs between students in Ghana and USA.
