The PAAJAF Foundation will provide motivated, hardworking students like Abigail with a scholarship for a good quality education in Ghana. PAAJAF's beneficiaries are students who are impoverished, orphaned or neglected and have no other access to education without help in the form of scholarship support from PAAJAF.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
Abigail is a brilliant girl at school who tops her peers in all subjects. She is very responsible both at home and at school. However, the financial difficulties faced by her parents do not allow a regular provision of the school materials, including a school uniform and text books. As a result, Abigail has frequent gaps in class attendance that then require her to study alone. It is particularly difficult for girls to stay in school; sometimes young girls are forced to work or start a family.
How will this project solve this problem?
We find it necessary to sponsor Abigail, as her family they have been identified in the community as poor and impoverished and not able to send Abigail to a good quality school. You can make a real difference to Abigail through regular school attendance, provision of tuition fees, books, uniform and health insurance and make her be part of her community.
Potential Long Term Impact
Abigail is very diligent and her future in education looks promising PAAJAF recognizes that Abigail needs urgent help and is looking for sponsors. A one-off donation or regular donation will help Abigail keep her education that she is so good at and loves so much. This will enable her to create a better future so she can work and support herself.
