We’re really pleased you’re thinking of raising money to help fight poverty and improve the lives of children, youth and women in Ghana.
Fundraising is very rewarding and a great educational tool for children to learn global citizenship skills, and become inspired to make a fairer world. Because of this investment of your energy and time, we want you to feel like part of our team. We’re in this together. We want our success to be your success.
We’ve added this free resources page because raising money should be fun! The best fundraising ideas are doing the things you are passionate about, be it running, climbing, or baking to ‘raise the dough’ – any simple action adds value to our work, and your donations big or small – make a HUGE difference in our children’s lives and empowers our community.
We also want you to know all the ways to contribute to our cause including volunteer opportunities for hands-on experience in Ghana, or take part in online volunteering in the comfort of your home or school!
