All the children have a voice, a new voice filled with confidence, self-esteem and joy and they say THANK YOU for your generous support and care about their lives. We are pleased to bring you our latest update about the lives you changed for the better.

This school term, the following children received support:
1. Erica  2. Mary  3. Abigail  4. Christpher  5. Josephine  6. Stephen  7. Vira  8. Nidaar

Erica is in Class 2 and she is doing well in school, her school reports all say good and excellent for her progress. She was happy to see her school fees fully paid, school lunch and classes’ fee for the whole term this reduced much stress in the family and in Erica. 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 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. The aunty is unemployed and a single mother also this makes

Mary is a very cheerful and brilliant girl and THANKS to YOU she is attending Class 1. She is a paternal orphan (the father has passed away). Currently Mary’s education is being financed by people like YOU. If it wasn't for previous donors/sponsors and their help, Mary would have stayed home. But Mary is currently in school with all her fees and other expenses paid!

Please keep a look out for GLOBALGIVING BONUS DAY on 16 July beginning at 9am EDT and for one day only, donations received will be matched by our partner Global Giving by 40% this means for a $20 donation we receive an additional $8, this helps children like Erica and Abigail to stay in school. Countdown with us here! Please keep in mind that even $10 can go a long way!

Abigail is a Junior High School student, has just completed school this month – June 2014. The completion of her education as a JHS graduate has been possible with the assistance of selfless donors like YOU. Currently she is at home waiting for her result which would be in on September 2014. YOU have made one achievement in her life now.

Your support is helping Stephen aged 10 years, I met Stephen in front of the school gate crying for been missing classes since his father has been unable to settle his fees, after checking their situation, funds are used to settle his school fee this term. Christpher - a preschool student who will move to nursery 1 next term. Nidaar, Josephine, Vira and Stephen, are all in school and doing well. They have had their school fees been paid and they are happy to receive your support.

Josephine was unable to go to school for 3 weeks due to there being no money for her school fees and her brother Kelvin. Josephine is already on the record of PAAJAF. So with your generous support we stepped in and YOU have put a smile on Josephine’s face by helping her to return to school.

THANK YOU for your efforts and belief in these children's potential, we look forward to the new school terms with hope and gratitude.
