We have been fortunate to have been given a unique opportunity to raise additional funds and support our amazing kids through GlobalGiving’s June Bonus Day.  Two generous donors came forward and the following school children will benefit from your recent donations of GH¢ 250 – GH¢ 280 (Ghanaian Cedi). 

  1. Erica  - GH¢ 60 full school tuition this term
  2. Vira  - GH¢ 50 to support her mother to purchase food to take care of Vira. 
  3. Lauren  - GH¢ 100 part tuition (Lauren’s school  fees are GH¢220 per a term)
  4. Nidaar  - GH¢60 full tuition for this school term

In July, the children continue to develop and progress. Erica and Vira are in class one and in the second term of the academic year and are learning English Language, Ghanaian Language, math, science, social and cultural studies. Being able to go to school this term means Erica and Vira are engaging in all school activities including this term physical education (PE) and worship service classes.

Nidaar and Lauren are in nursery school. The four children are in good condition and happy for the support they are receiving from you our passionate donors and from your continued support.

Our next goal is a September fundraiser - where fundraisers themselves can earn prizes from their amazing effort - please contact kappiah@paajaf.org!

Here is more detailed background about our wonderful children. As an orphan, Erica relies on the help of PAAJAF otherwise she would be thrown out of school.

Lauren has a single mother, her father died, and currently her mother has no job and finds it difficult to take care of her and the brother Kwaku.  A donation means we can step in to part-pay this term’s fees and support her education.

Vira has a single mother who has not seen her father since her birth.  Her mother is employed to teach nursery school with small take home pay that could not take care of Vira.  Your donations provide support her mother so she can provide nutritious food to Vira

Through a generous sponsorship donation Nidaar's school fees can be paid in full this term helping her remain in nursey, we have stepped in because Nidaar’s father is only able to secure casual labor and her mother remains at home to look after children, making things difficult for Niddar to meet her educational needs.

Once again, thank you for your kindness and support across the world. We continue to campaign to local residents about our children and raising awareness at a local level.
