A million thanks to the Ghanaian Women’s Society of Pittsburgh for sponsoring a fundraising campaign for Hope for Ghana, selling gorgeous traditional Ghanaian bracelets made of hand-painted glass beads. These bracelets made by women in Ghana have been flown into Pittsburgh solely for the purpose of raising money for Hope for Ghana’s projects. Bracelets are on sale for $25 each. No two bracelets are the same, each one uniquely reflecting the beauty and color of Ghana. 100% of the donation price will go towards Hope for Ghana’s mission to bring opportunity through education to the children of Ghana. Please contact Hope for Ghana if you are interested in purchasing these special hand-crafted bracelets.
Hope for Ghana is very proud to announce plans to build its sixth library and computer lab in a small rural village, Abor, in February 2017. The Director of Education, Mr. Rafael Kwashie, and I traveled to several schools and communities while I was recently in Ghana, looking at Ghana’s greatest educational needs. When we visited Abor-Weme Municipal Assembly Basic School, home to 500 primary and junior high school students, Mr. Kwashie informed me that 0% of this school’s students were able to pass Ghana’s Basic Education Certificate Examination, an examination qualifying students to move from junior high school to senior high school. In that moment I knew this is where Hope for Ghana’s next library and computer lab needed to be built.
