Abigail, what do you want become in future?  Abilgail said, "I would like to become a Doctor."

With your gracious support, Abigail now has a scholarship fund that will enable her to attend Acropolis School in Gbawe, Ghana for the new school year (during 2014). Every year children that want to attend good quality schools need to pay school fees, without this impoverished teenagers like Abigail are forced to go to work or study at the local school run on a shift basis, in unsafe conditions with unqualified teachers and lack of classrooms, books, toilets.

Abigail is a bright and brilliant girl at school, her school reports show that she is top of the class and above her peers in all subjects. She is very responsible both at home and at school and Abigail looks after her younger brother Joshua. She is very diligent and her future in education looks promising. Her dream to become a doctor is only held back by access to good quality education, because her attitude is very hardworking and she is fiercly determined and energetic with her studies, which she enjoys a lot.

Abigail is now at the tender age of 13, and with the $1000 total funds PAAJAF will use the funds for the following for Abigail;

  • School Fees per year      $680
  • School Meals                 $200
  • School Supplies              $100
  • Exam Fees                     $10
  • Health Insurance              $10

Before she received help, there have been many hardships with unemployment and financial difficulties faced by her parents, this meant Abigail could not afford school books, including a school uniform. As a result, Abigail had frequent gaps in class attendance that then required her to study alone, this meant she did not receive help with her understanding and had to work very hard to keep up with her peers. Despite this, she remains incredibly bright. Abigail sincerely thanks you for the kindness and support to her education, you have brought a happy smile to her face and she sends her heartfelt appreciation.

You have brought a clear future to Abigail and made an incredible difference in her life. PAAJAF recognizes that Abigail needs urgent help and is looking for sponsors for her following school years, until she finishes junior high school. We thank you for being a part of her wonderful new year.
