Sustainable education for children in rural Ghana through community collaboration. Community matches each dollar raised thrugh self-sustaining model. Academic instruction, cultural identity, sports.


Young children in rural Ghana suffer from a lack of quality education, recreational opportunities, clean water and sanitation facilities. Through a five-year continuing partnership with the University of Utah medical school and local tribal elders in Barekuma, Ghana, we are helping the community help itself with collaborative and sustainable development. With this project, life expectancy is being extended through adaption of proper nutrition practices, AIDS/malaria prevention, and education.
