Why we do it

In  Ghana, more than a quarter of all children live in poverty. That’s 3.5 million children. To make matters worse, 3 out of every 10 children of primary school age do not attend school. Around  6 out of every 10 children of secondary school going age are out of school. This is because families can’t afford to send their children to school.

Sponsor a child by giving a scholarship

Many children in Ghana live in extreme poverty. Education is the long-term path out of poverty, but some children can’t even afford going to a free school. This is where we come in, with child sponsorship.
