Here again another year has successfully ended. We give glory and honour to the highest God for his sustenance. The year 2015 was another busy year for PAAJAF.
The Lord has affirmed the mission and vision that the PAAJAF Foundation is to follow and we move forward in renewed hope this year too – the year 2016. PAAJAF as an NGO in Gbawe Community in Ghana has experienced a great strengthening and expansion in our activities through the support of our generous donors and sponsor Linino Organisation, our project partners – GlobalGiving, Our Church of Saviour, Namecheap, Digicert, iFlychat and Knews and Individual Donors as well as our supporter UN Online Volunteers and our benevolent and dependable volunteers.
Sponsor a Child
Under our Sponsor a Child program, 8 children were sponsored in 2015 as compared with 12 children in the year 2014. It has been amazing to watch the personal development of the children as they return to school! Unfortunately, we were not able to sponsor six additional children due to lack of funding and sponsors.
PAAJAF Educational Institute
64 children enrolled in 2015 and 20 children in 2014 which means that student enrollment was increased by 220% in the year 2015. 9 student literacy education participants were able to receive a scholarship for adult education (non-formal education).

to start a school building project
at the PEI school
at the PEI school
provided to adults
- Work closely with our sponsors, partners, supporters and volunteers while utilizing accountability and high ethics.
- Look for project sponsors, partners and donations for the PEI Family Learning Centre project and other projects at PAAJAF. Buy land for the school as the school is currently in a rented venue with a lease expiry in October 2016. We hope to re-rent the venue for at least one more year and purchase the land for the school to start a school building project.
- To be able to sponsor 12 children through our child welfare (Sponsor a Child) project. We hope to use Child Sponsorship to provide education and continually increase our number from 12.
- To use PEI – Scholarship school project – to maintain the current 64 students and to hire more teachers at the school. Also, we hope to provide free lunch to the kids at PEI and provide a scholarship non-formal education to 10 adults (particularly women) in order to obtain education and be able to help themselves and their children.
