Education is very important all over the world. It can make a difference in the life of people when you have a change to get education. Ghana is doing well compared to other African countries when you look at the percentages of children that go to school. The only question then is the level of education the children get. Most of the time the classes are overcrowded, 50 to 60 children in 1 class room. Sometimes 1 teacher for 2 classes. We decided to sponsor children with their fees to get education at private schools. We pay for the school fees, schoolbag, shoes, uniform, books and the main part of the transport costs. The parents take care of the feeding and a part of the transport costs.
On this moment we sponsor 13 children. They go to different schools in the area. The funds are coming from friends, family and from Ko-Sa Beach Resort. We would like to help more children, but good education is not cheap in Ghana. The costs per child per school year varies from 800,00 Ghana Cedi to 1700,00 Ghana Cedi. When they continue their education from primary to Junior High and Senior High the costs will be increasing. If you are interested to help children from Ampenyi with good education you can become a sponsor of a child. The money is 100% used to pay the expenses for their education. No costs for administration or salaries.
We hope to get a lot of sponsors so more children will have a chance to receive good education.
