Erica is very dedicated student at The Pearls School but now the caretaker has moved from the Gbawe community to a different community due to lack of funding to pay rent. Erica's goal is to be able to become a Bank Manager in the future. Erica needs a good education. she is very poor and depends on her career. As at now, 2016 supported fund for Erica is running out and she will need to remain in school. Hence, PAAJAF has to look for supporters for her for the 2017 school year.


Your support will help Erica to remain in school. Her caretaker lives in the community and is poor with little wages, so not able to send Erica and her children to a good quality school. With your help you continue to make a real difference to Erica through regular school attendance, provision of tuition fees, books, and uniform, home feeding support, school launch and make her be part of her community. Erica needs support to attend school in 2017 year.

Long-Term Impact

Erica is very hardworking and her future in education looks promising. For girls, the choices when you are poor is to work in low paid, menial jobs at a young age or be sent away for marriage. Erica needs urgent help so that she can grow up with an education and break the poverty cycle. This project will create a better future for Erica so she can secure employment and support herself.
