To whom much is given…

You may be aware that I recently visited some students I’m currently sponsoring at Jubilee Senior High School in Ghana. The school was started by the charity AACO in Dampong, a rural village in the Ashanti region

After spending 3 days at the school, I realised that we should be doing more to help these young boys and girls. My girlfriends and I were overwhelmed by how hungry they were for knowledge and full of aspiration for their futures, despite the obvious poverty challenges facing them. 

We want to raise £3000 so we can help build a hostel for the students who are currently living under very poor conditions.

Why we are campaigning for a student hostel:

Average journey time for students to get to the school is 30mins – ON FOOT!

Build discipline and routine

Access to decent accommodation and sanitary facilities

Pastoral support on site during the school term

3 square meals a day

Expand their social horizons

Reduce the risk of exploitation

All of which will better enable the students to focus on the key objective for their future success  - their EDUCATION
