Weʼre raising £400 to help renovate the Dumpong school library and provide the educational resources needed.

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.
Every night, more than 60,000 youth have no choice but to sleep on the streets and an estimated 60 percent of them are young mothers under the age of 20 with their children.
ABAN is a non-profit dedicated to empowering young mothers in Ghana by selling unique, handmade products from recycled materials. The profit from the products sold goes into providing vocational training to these mothers, giving them hope for a better future.
With such an amazing initiative comes many elements to consider; for instance, what happens to the children whilst their mothers are at training? Are they too being educated and if so, how can we help better the standard of education provided to not just the women but their children as well? With this in mind and the help of Helen Asuman's book club, we donated 531 textbooks to the school’s that teach the children of the ABAN women!!
Now, we aim to extend our efforts by taking a trip to Ghana this July to donate computers, furniture and story books to the primary school in Dumpong. This primary school teaches quite a few of the ABAN children but does not have any library facilities; a playground and teaches IT by using only a mouse and keyboard to demonstrate. Due to this, we are going out there to renovate a brand new library for them and provide the resources required to teach IT adequately!
In order to achieve our goal, we would like to ask for your help through donations to create a better future for the young children of the ABAN organization. With your help, we can make sure children are receiving the education they deserve!
