Project Report for Scholarship Fund

For the period September – December 2013

I am very pleased to have another opportunity to present the project update of our scholarship fund (Help Underprivileged Children in Ghana).  During September to December we received  individual donations from GlobalGiving totalling around $1700. We are so happy that $1,176.25 was received to support Mary for the 2013/2014 academic year. $396.50 was also received to the fund to support Gilbert Essilfie to get admission into University. We here at PAAJAF are thankful to all our donors and wish you all Season's Greetings and a Happy New Year!

From September to December 2013, the following impoverished children are beneficiaries of our scholarship fund:

  • Mary age 7
  • Erica age 9
  •  Vira age 7
  • Christpher age 3
  • Abigail age 13
  • From 2014 - Gilbert (part funded) age 17

We will receive funds for Gilbert  in January of $396.50 from generous GlobalGiving donors. When that fund is received, it would enable him to apply for Cape Coast University in 2014 - Thank you so much it means so much to Gilbert, words can only express our appreciation and love. The fund will only pay for his admission which means he will be still in need for lodging, text books and food.  Please, read about Gilbert and his needs through our website:  Gilbert has a dream to become accountant.

When we asked Mary, "Mary what do you want to become in future", she said, “I will be a Doctor”. Mary is a kind girl, who is co-operative and humble in class and has interest on all subjects according to her class teachers remarks in her latest school report. And when I when I asked Mary, she said, “I like all the subjects but I like Maths very well”.  Mary is in Class one at Mercy School complex in Gbawe Community. With your support we have received full funding for Mary for the 2013/2014 academic year.  To read more about Mary please, visit this link:, PAAJAF has provided from your donations - $300 on Mary’s education and home support.  The expenses include: School fees, school supplies, school uniform, heath Insurance, home feeding support and school feeding.  On Mary’s account we have a balance of $876.25 that will be used specifically for the next two school terms fees which will start on January 7th 2014.Your support has been inspiring, Mary and her family thank you.

Christpher, Erica and Vira are supported, going to Mercy, Pearls, and Acropolis schools in Gbawe. This is through the scholarship fund and Abigail received sponsorship this year through personal contribution part payment of her school fees.  Next year, your help has meant Abigail can look forward to attending school next year too! You are helping the children to realise their future goals - Christpher wants to become an accountant in future, Vira also said, “I will become a Doctor”.  Abigail, what do you want become in future?  Abilgail also said, she would like to become a Doctor.  Erica said, I would like to become a Bank Manager. The children are in school and receiving good grades, their future is better because they have a good education.

There are other children in Gbawe also that need your help most. We will be creating micro project for each of them and we would need your help to put smiles into their faces.  Please visit our website to know more about the children.

Please get in touch if you want to help or wish to contact us

Thank you most sincerely and wish you a happy 2014.
