Dear Friends of PAAJAF,

We here at PAAJAF are much grateful to you for your generosity and selfless contribution and investment in the lives of underprivileged children at PAAJAF in Gbawe Community, Ghana. Your donations are making real changes in their lives - Erica, Abigail and Josephine.Please visit our website to read about these children and other children at PAAJAF: http://paajaf.org/recipients/.

The situation at Gbawe in Ghana.
Gbawe is the village of Accra, the capital city of Ghana with about 45% of Gbawe's residents are unemployed. There is a large number of young people in the area and youth unemployment is high. A lack of basic skills makes it difficult for individuals to secure employment and families continue to experience extreme poverty due to lack of education etc. Extreme poverty and low levels of literacy have had a negative impact on health. The rampant ill health is decreasing the ability of people to acquire and maintain employment and is trapping individuals and families in a cycle of continuous deprivation. Parents depend on their children in old age, so it is crucial that their children are educated to secure jobs in future. African women seem strong, however their social position is determined by their husbands and single women with families find themselves marginalised. If a child in the family succeeds then s/he will be able to help his/her family. But there is lack of support to these children. Without your support to these children at PAAJAF, please, let us imagine their future.

Thank you for investing in their lives and the concerns. We appreciate your support a lot. In January 2012, PAAJAF would be paying tuitions for the children at PAAJAF but no funding now. If you don't come in to support these children, they would be removed from school and this would be sad, I believe you would not like to hear this. Christmas is here and 2012 also is just at the corner. We would like to plead to you to share our project to your friends, co-worker, families etc. invest in the lives of children at PAAJAF. This Christmas, everyone will celebrate and thank the Lord for what he/she received in his/her life. Few will be thinking about the less privileged. I hope you and they are one of them. Merry Christmas!
