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.
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.

The Kpevenu community has been so eager to provide education that it has recently put up a temporary “shack” made of a bamboo straw roof held up by a few bamboo sticks, under which 3 classes learn side by side on benches. Member of Parliament Hon. Bernard Ahiafor and I recently met with a village hungry for the chance to learn. Hon. Ahiafor’s plea to Hope for Ghana to build a new school in Kpevenu can be seen in the video below. He referred to the temporary structure students learn under and pleaded, “This is what the people of Kpevenu use as a classroom. It ...

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. Mason’s ...
