WE PROVIDE SCHOLARSHIPS IN THE POOREST VILLAGES

Education is the most powerful and effective way to address global poverty. In Ghana education is free up to the age of 18, but to attend school you need shoes and a uniform. If you are living in poverty and have several children that first hit to get all your childern to school is sometimes just too much. We work with the local Head Masters and village Chiefs to identify those families in the greatest need and provide shoes, books, pencils, bag, belt and a uniform.

Educating girls and women is widely acknowledged as the most powerful and effective way to address global poverty, teaching a children to read opens a door so that they can read every medicine bottle, employment ad and ballot form they encounter.

Finishing secondary school leads to smaller, healthier families, lower HIV infection rates, and higher wages. Educated women are more likely to educate their own children – ending the cycle of illiteracy in one generation.

Literacy is the cornerstone of all learning and fundamental for participation in today’s global society, yet 793 million people across the globe lack the ability to read and write.

So far we have granted over 700 scholarships (25/1/13) in over 70 remote rural villages.
