Help orphan Erica to go to School (Ghana)

A microproject by Paajaf Foundation
Erica in the new school term!
Erica in the new school term!

You've supported her education, there are no more tears....She is 9 years old now and in Class 3 and attends The Pearls School. She is lively and is hoping to become a Bank Manager in the future. Luckily, her favourite subject at school is Maths, as you have already read about her, so she is already on the right path. This term has seen Erica keep progressing well in all her subjects, especially Creative Arts and R.E and Erica continues to grow and become a more confident and well adjusted young lady! She behaves well in class and listens attentively.

Erica has gotten her school fees, school meals, uniform, and school supplies been purchased for academic term 2014. Sadly, because Erica is an orphan, as her mother passed since she was 2 years old and PAAJAF has been supporting her through the help of individual donors, because she is now under the care of her aunt Rebecca, who is married with four children of her own. We will keep supporting this bright and talented young girl until she completes her education so that it will give her the best type of future, where she can support herself with a good job and career! We and Erica are so appreciative of your kind support and THANK YOU sincerely! We look forward to your continued support of this wonderful lady!

Erica said THANK YOU, a young orphan living in our community, now she has a voice because she was can go to school and her education uplifts her to speak, write and read with confidence.

Erica and her Aunt extend a great THANK YOU for your generosity. With your donations she is in Class 2 and she is doing well in school.  Her school reports have marked her good and excellent. She was happy to see her school fees fully paid, school lunch and classes’ fee for the whole term. When the school term started, the first month I had phone call from her auntie who takes care of her, “Mr. Kyei, the school has begun again, please, your child’s school, how are things going on?” And I told her, not a problem, we can go and pay the school fees, on behalf of her donors.

Erica is dual orphan (no mother and father) and she is under the care of her auntie who four children in addition to her. Erica's aunt is unemployed and a single mother also therefore times are very hard on her because she does not have support and women unfortunately do not have a strong role in getting jobs in this condition. But she is perservering and with assistance with school fees Erica's future is much brighter, Erica's self esteem and self worth is getting stronger everyday.

Look at for GLOBALGIVING BONUS DAY on Wednesday 16 July beginning at 9am EDT and for one day only, all donations received will be matched by our partner Global Giving. This means a $10 is matched up to 40% and children like Erica can benefit even more! Countdown with us here!  Please keep in mind that even $10 can go a long way!

Thank you most sincerely for supporting education, children and a great cause.

Best regards
