Happy New Year

Dear Friends of PAAJAF,

Happy New Year!  The year 2011 has just commenced and PAAJAF wishes to express its gratitude to you for your generosity and contribution to our projects.   The year 2010 has marked three years of continuous struggles and commitments to make a difference in the lives of underprivileged children, youth and women.

PAAJAF owes 2010’s achievements to your generosity that allowed us to pay the school fees for neglected children and provide literacy education (non-formal education) for adults who did not get a chance to attend school in Gbawe Community. 

For the year 2011, we are delighted to inform you that we will be carrying on PAAJAF projects and are depending 100% on your donations both cash, in-kind and partnership.  PAAJAF urgently requires an office space to coordinate a team of local and international volunteers and to manage programs of the foundation; an amount of $13,500 is needed.  Having an office will enable PAAJAF to: enlist local volunteers in a professional setting, meet with and support program participants, have contact with a variety of stakeholders engaged in PAAJAF work, use ICT and other equipment for global networking, and maintain an effective filing and storage system.

We appreciate that you take an interest in helping disadvantaged children, youth and women in Ghana to break free from the cycle of poverty through becoming empowered, informed, skilled and educated citizens.
