Hello All,

Achievers Ghana on the 14 of May 2022 embarked on an excursion to the Elmina Castle and Kakum National Park, all in the central region of Ghana, a four-hour journey from Accra in honor of our 11th-year anniversary.

The excursion took one hundred girls to these historical places. Elmina Castle housed memories of the slave trade in Ghana and the West Africa sub-region in its entirety. It was truly educative and exciting for the girls as most of the things they saw there reflect in their memories of what they are thought in their schools. Many of the girls shared tears as a result of having a feel about how their great grandfathers and grandmothers were treated in such an inhumane way.

The Kakum National Park is always an exciting, awesome, and fearful place as the girls have to mount a bouncing canopy that looks like falling to the ground. The courage will take a troke to up to seven canopies while those who cannot take only three canopies. The excitement and the joy are still with the girls as this is their first time traveling outside their immediate communities. 

The trip was embarked to celebrate 11 years of non-stop hard work, perseverance, dedication, and selfless working of our girls who made it possible to work efficiently and effectively to achieve our aims and objectives. 

We are much grateful to our donors, supporters, and well-wishers who are strongly standing behind us to ensure that girls have the right to deliver our mandate and help broaden the horizon of a deprived and vulnerable girl child. Thank you so much.

We hope to continue receiving your donation from all and sundry in order to put girls in their rightful place in life through access to quality and holistic education.

Thank you all,

I am so happy to inform you that, the past months have been consistent progress by the girls from one stage to the other. 

So far we have 27 girls who have graduated from Senior High School and 13 of them have gotten admissions to various universities in the country. Thanks to our donors and supporters in this crusade. 

45 of the girls are waiting for their results to proceed to Senior High School when they wrote the Basic Education Certificate Examination last year in November.

This year 37 of the girls are waiting to graduate from Junior High School. These statistics call for appreciation to our donors and especially the recurrent donors. 

However, with all these success stories, we still have a large number of girls who are still in lower and upper primaries school and are patiently waiting for your kind support and donation to be able to continue their education without any impediment.

Life in the slums of Ghana is not an easy one for everybody and with the current economic hardship due to the COVID-19 pandemic, parents, guardians, and organizations are finding it difficult to get funding to continue their wards or beneficiaries education. 

The new academic year just began in Ghana and everything has increased in terms of the prices of school supplies which is making it totally difficult to fulfill our mandate as an organization. 

We, therefore, pray that you will continue to support this project so that we can raise enough funds to support these deprived girls who have no one to support them but you the kind-hearted individual out there. 

We thank you for your usual and kind support and we hope to will share our project with all those who are willing and ready to support us.

Hello,

I want to use this opportunity to continue thanking you for your kind and usual support of our project. It has been well so far as the girls under scholarship are doing well and are progressing steadily. This year 2021, 6 of our girls have graduated from Senior High School and are awaiting results to proceed to their various universities.

And thanks for your kind support. These girls are with the program since in class 3 and have benefitted from this project since. This shows the kind of dedication with the hard earn resources you the donors have shown and invested in these deprived girls and have really lifted them from zero to empowerment.

We are currently having 17 of these girls under this project going in their final exams in the Basic Education Certificate Examination. It is an honor and privilege to support these girls and seeing them going in line with the aims and objectives of the project.

We will always show our appreciation to you and we will hope you will continue to support us to empower these girls through quality education. Please, we also need your voice by introducing and sharing our projects with potential and latent donors to continue us. Thank you always and may the good Lord bless you all.

Very much grateful for your kind support so far in these difficult times. It has really been good as we are able to maintain 150 girls in school inrrespective of the problems posed by the pandemic which put many of them in difficulties and prevent many from going back to school after the lockdown. 

But we are still facing many challenges us we are faced with limited funds with lots of girls waiting to be supported by our program. These girls risk the chance of been maintained and continue learning at school since we are not able to support the adequately with learning materials to keep them in class contribution and up to date.

We are hereby requesting for more support to allow us to continue supporting these vulnerable girls. Let get all the 350 girls in school and i believe with your kind support together we can do it.

Hello, 

So excited to reach you today. So excited because you are all wonderful individuals who never disappoints to fulfil their mandate. 

As schools reopened in Ghana, and there are much concerns as to whether school children can be protected against the deadly COVID-19 pandemic, the children never give much concern about the virus. All that they are thinking about is that, after long stay at home, finally they are back to school to continue their studies.

However, many girls are yet to realize their dream of going back to school. To many girls, the pandemic has not only caused fear and backwardness to many communities but it has shattered their dreams of becoming potential leaders. Many were forced to continue with the family business in the nearby markets as a way of supporting the family at the expense of the girl's education. 

Without much efforts and supports from philanthropic people like you, these girls would go through life without their basic rights of education. 

The project is currently working seriously by visiting schools and households to ensure all girls under the project are safely back to schools with all the necessary learning aids they require to succeed in class. 

We will continue to seek for your kind support to ensure all these girls get their proper place in class. 
Kindly share out link to all family and friends and well wishers to donate to ensure the girls do not continue sitting at home. We don't want to give any excuse a chance and do not let us leave any girl behind.

Thank you so much once again for your usual support and we hope you will continue to be with us by supporting us until we achieve our mission.
