Welcome to PAAJAF, an NGO geared towards growing a community in which the impoverished children in the Gbawe sector of Accra can flourish and the needy can receive aid from our kind-hearted and generous donors.
Our Past
Less than 10 years ago, I jointly conducted a study with Juliet Yayera Afua, a teacher in Gbawe and was disturbed by the following findings:
  •   Only one public school for a population of 44,000
  •   Eager children unable to go school due to lack of funds
  •   Lack of proper health care
  •   Lack of funds that could assist Gbawe’s entrepreneurs
  •   Lack of a good library
Our Present

We have come a long way from those dismal times. Thanks to collaborations with the Sinapi Aba Trust, Worldreader, GlobalGiving, MacEwan University Global Education Fund, United Nation Volunteers among others, we have been able to:

  •   Provide Gbawe’s adults with an entrepreneurial mind, micro-loans to help them start their petty trades and businesses
  •   Establish the PAAJAF Education Institute (PEI), a scholarship school that provides individual attention from pre-school to primary school children as well as adult literacy education
  •   Developed a library within PEI where children can read books
  •   Provide 35 Kindle E-readers (as of August 2016) for the children
Our Future
The future looks strong and uplifting. With the continued support of our sponsors as well as individual donors we are striving to:
  •   Enroll more children in PEI
  •   Obtain a PEI bus
  •   Build a scholarship program for the children
  •   Enhance the PEI library with additions, such as laptops and more E-readers
  •   Grow PEI to include schooling for secondary school students, and eventually, university-level students
  •   Provide proper healthcare services to children and their parents
welcome you to join us and help shape our future. Learn about OUR PROJECTS and help us support Gbawe’s children in achieving their dreams, one child at a time.
