We help build toilets & libraries in Ghana to improve health, education & well-being


THANK YOU so much to everyone who has donated. The mattresses have all been delivered and very gratefully received. We have closed this appeal now, if you would like to donate to our other projects please search for Community Action Ghana on Just Giving. Thanks again! 


We are currently visiting our projects in the Volta Region of Ghana. It is great to see the toilets, school equipment & libraries in use! 

However, there was a fire at the EP Technical Vocational Institute in Alavanyo Kpeme on Tuesday. Thankfully the students were on vacation at the time so no one was hurt. But one of the dormitories was badly effected. Before the boys went on holiday they put all of their possessions into boxes, along with their mattress, and piled them into the dormitory for safe keeping. 

Schools are free in Ghana but students must bring their own mattresses, school uniform, books, etc. All of these have been burnt in the fire - most beyond repair. 

The boys in this dormitory are second & third years (aged 15-17.) If they cannot replace their belongings they will be unable to return to school and finish their education. 

The school have completed an immediate needs assessment and found that 195 mattresses are needed for the boys. 

Each mattress costs the equivalent of £31.04

The school has reached out to us, and other local NGOs to support. We would love to be able to replace some mattresses as soon as possible to help the students get back to their studies. 

If you would like to help then please donate today.

If you are unable to give financially but want to support please share our donations page to encourage others who may be able to. 

With thanks,

The Community Action Ghana Team
