In September 2017 Hope for Ghana began its most ambitious project to date, building its first school in the very remote, tiny village of Gakpokorpe, a poor village of farmers whose children now walk almost 3 kilometers each way to get to school every day. Hope for Ghana is building a school that will include 4 classrooms, Hope for Ghana’s signature library and toilets to create a kindergarten and primary school, giving young children the chance to learn with the dignity of a modern school and all the necessary tools for a proper education.
Hope for Ghana is very proud to dedicate its first school to Mason Langford, a beautiful patient of mine who passed away when he was only 20 months old. His short time on earth brought light and happiness to all who knew him, and his huge smile was contagious. On February 13, 2015 Mason’s life was tragically cut short by Sudden Unexpected Death in Epilepsy.
Mason’s School of Hope will be a reflection of his light and love that lives on forever, every day bringing hope and opportunity to young children in Ghana yearning for their future.
