Ongoing malaria screening
Ongoing malaria screening

Malaria is responsible for the death of many children and adults in Ghana. Many Ghanaians do not regard it as a serious disease leaving them more exposed with a higher chance of being infected.  Tanf Ghana had its first health screening this year and the screening was focused on malaria. The screening was organized with the help of some volunteers and was held at Aburi/Ejanua a village in the Eastern Region of Ghana. 

From afternoon through to evening we screened the inhabitants of this village. We first started with a health talk on malaria and educated the people on the importance of protecting themselves from mosquitoes. Many of them had questions regarding the prevention of malaria and the use of the mosquito nets, which we answered.

 After the screening, our analysis showed that 42% of the children and 12 % of the adults screened tested positive for Malaria.in Ejuana. We also screened adults to know their blood pressure level and about 45% of them had hypertension while 40% of them had grade 2 or 3. Hypertension is a growing health problem in Ghana especially among women and a few men. Many of them were already aware of their blood pressure condition but were not taking any action to visit heath centers to seek medication and medical advice because the medical costs were too much for them.

All the people who tested positive for malaria were given medication and asked to also seek medical advice.  The adults who had high blood pressure were educated on how to live and maintain a healthy living and to also seek medical advice. After all screening had been done, the children were given some stationaries to use in school. 

This screening was very successful and many of the people were very grateful to Tanf Ghana. We were able to make this possible because of the help all our sponsors and volunteers have put in to help these people through Tanf Ghana.

Nancy is a bright 16 years old girl who is very passionate about education and would give her all to have access to education. Unfortunately, she had to drop out from school during her last year due to many difficulties that were preventing her from attaining the education she wanted. Some of these difficulties included luck of financial support from her parents to enable her continue with her schooling. She is staying with her single mother who's farming job is not stable enough to support her while her dad is nowhere to be found. Also the distance between her home and the school she attended was about 2 hours of walking and she has to cover that distance to and from school every day since she could not afford the fare of the vehicle that could convey people from that village to the nearest town where her school was located.

 It has been a year since she last went to school. Her favourite subject was science and she wants to become a medical doctor in future.

At Tanf Ghana, we know the importance of educating the girl child and the value of gender equality which is why we are ever ready to do all that we can to ensure that she enrolls back to school.

With the help of individual donors like you, we are preparing to send Nancy to school to finish her last year in Junior High school and proceed to senior high school to achieve her future dream of becoming a medical doctor.

 Follow us and we will keep you updated about Nancy and her education from present. Thank you for your support and as you keep supporting us, we can together change the lives of people like Nancy.

Some children are not able to attend school not just because they can’t just afford to pay fees but also because they probably are sick and can’t afford the hefty medical bills. Good health is one of the tickets of enjoying a happy and successful life.

Because we at Tanf know the importance of good health to individuals, we make it a priority to provide good health care initiatives for our scholarship holders. The Health insurance scheme enables our scholarship holders enjoy free health care and in some cases the insurance scheme enables them get drugs from the pharmacies without incurring any financial cost.

Every child has been given an insurance card which is valid for 5 years but has to be renewed yearly. Each child with this health insurance stands the chance of getting free medical care whenever the need arises. We do this to ensure that no child has to stay home because they are sick and can’t afford their medical bills.

We are currently arranging for over 500 other children who are on our waiting list to also enjoy free medical care. Our doors are open to all individuals who want to sponsor our national health insurance initiative. You can donate $10 per child to cover all 5 years of the insurance scheme.

Join us in promoting healthy living for a happy and successful life.

We are really excited to introduce Benedicta  as our first child of the week. She is a bright 9 year old currently in class 3 at Fidif school complex.

BACKGROUND

Benedicta lost her dad at the age of 7 after two years of battling and losing to a heart disease. During the years her dad was struggling with the disease, her mom had to invest all resources available to treat him. Her dad died leaving her with her mom and other two brothers. Because of this, Benedicta and her two other brothers had to drop out of school and help their mom make a living.

HERE COMES TANF!

When we heard of Benedicta and her brothers, we decided to lend them a helping hand. Currently, Benedicta and her brothers are back in school enjoying the benefits of education from Tanf. Benedicta is receiving a fully paid tuition scholarship including examination fees and extra tutoring fees, free school uniforms, fully paid transportation and meals and a valid health insurance benefit.

Benedicta aspires to become a medical doctor and support patients who may not be able to afford medical bills due to financial disability. Because we share her dream, we will support her and provide her with the necessary resources to achieve it. You can also join us by giving us your support to enable us touch and change the lives of other young children like Benedicta. You can donate on Global Giving website by either choosing a one-time donation or a monthly donation with a minimum of $10.

We are truly excited to share with you that with TANF, our sponsored kids are Back to School!

As of October 2017, we have managed to get 22 new children back to school!

We have manage to get 12 new children to school due to your kind and continues supports for TANF.

Other 10 children from our waiting list (of 500 kids in total) were awarded with TANF’s education and healthcare sponsorship, due to your team’s ability to plan ahead to purchase learning materials before school resumes. From our research, we have discovered that over 50% of the 500 children on our waiting list are not in school due to lack of learning materials. So we acted on it.

We have distributed all the necessary leaning materials for all new and already enrolled children at the first school day, being a huge success. These materials are going to help the kids for the next 3-4 months, guiding their learning journey. Their progress will be thoroughly supported and evaluated,  ensuring that the value of the learning materials is maximized, that their school attendance is adequate and that their academic performance reflects growth.

Most of the new children are going to school for the first time. Some have been forced to drop out for a few months due to financial challenges that their families have experienced. Some of the children were feeling desperate and frustrated. Some girls faced the danger of teenage pregnancy or early child marriage.

But what matters now is that they are now all Back to School! Thanks to your help and thanks to TANF.

The more support we receive there more children we can enroll to school. One child at a time.

We therefore thank you and encourage you to continue supporting TANF with even a small amount per month with (minimum of 10$), as even a small amount can change a life of a child sponsored by TANF

THANK YOU!

Laud & The TANF Team
