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 has announced plans to create its fifth library and computer lab in the village of Ashiata this September, only months after the creation of The Fritz Cameron Library in Anloga. Ashiata Municipal Assembly Basic School, a kindergarten, primary and junior high school serving 800 students, will be the proud home of Hope for Ghana’s newest project. Hope for Ghana’s fifth project was inspired by an emotional appeal by an entire community surrounding this school in Ashiata during my last trip to Ghana. A formal presentation was attended by the local Chief, school PTA, teachers and community members pleading for Hope for Ghana to help the educational standard at their school in the same way Hope for Ghana was raising that standard in nearby villages. The final speaker said, “This is a life changing day. Today there is hope.”
