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 built its first school in the remote village of Gakpokorpe, a poor village of farmers whose children previously walked almost 3 kilometers each way to get to school. The school, dedicated to Mason Langford, provides a kindergarten, primary school and library.
Grace Life Church in Pittsburgh has graciously donated the entire cost of bringing potable water to Gayikope, a village in Ghana that previously had to fetch distant muddy river water.
