Hope for Ghana's third project was the creation of The Elena Haasen Library, named in memory of the daughter of a dear friend. This library and computer lab was built at Tegbi Agbedrafor Basic School, home to 600 primary and junior secondary school students.
Hope for Ghana is building its first school in the remote village of Gakpokorpe, a poor village of farmers whose children now walk almost 3 kilometers each way to get to school. The schoolhouse, dedicated to Mason Langford, will create a kindergarten, primary school and library.
Hope for Ghana left behind a borehole and pump in Gakpokorpe that provides clean drinkable water. Women and children who had to walk long distances to fetch water, sometimes using dirty river water, now have a healthy, clean source of water flowing in their village.
