£330raised of £300 target by 16 supporters

Weʼre raising £300 to help Akwasi purchase PCs/Laptops for Apewu District Assembly Junior High School in Ghana

What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

Story

Akwasi, a Security Officer in the UK watched a documentary on BBC which showed how a local community in the UK came together to help a School in Africa by sourcing useful items like books.

This inspired him to visit Ghana and purchase tables and chairs for a local school. The teachers there now use a brick (closest resemblance they can find) to show students what a computer mouse looks like.

Akwasi would now like to take laptops/PCs to the school so the students can learn how to use a computer. Please help Akwasi with whatever contribution you can make. I will upload receipts once purchases have been made and share photographs of laptops being used/delivered.

Thank you for your support!

    Thank you all for your generous donations. You've been amazing! Contributions above our target will be used towards shipping costs which Akwasi & I are going to cover. Just so you know, cheapest online quote for shipping is £54 per PC bundle (15kg each) so we're looking at over £200 but still on the hunt for cheaper price to justify cost of PCs. I will leave this page open for contributions until I test the first PC when it arrives. Once I'm happy with its performance, I'll close the donation & order the remaining PCs. Thank you once again :)

Having brought up in Kenya and not having access to a computer until later on in life, I appreciate it even more and relate to the School kids in Ghana who do not have this privilege. They will be thrilled to use these PCs and learn the way we learn here in the UK!
