Hope for Ghana is thrilled to continue work on our fourth school in the village of Klokpe where children are presently learning under deplorable conditions, some of the kids learning under a tree or under a shed. Our largest project to date will provide 12 classrooms that will serve kindergarteners through 9th graders. The school will feature solar power, a library and computer lab, a water borehole with a reverse osmosis purification machine thanks to the wonderful generosity of Brother’s Brother Foundation, boys and girls bathroom facilities, and much more.
Maureen’s School of Hope will proudly honor the memory of my dear friend, Maureen Ellis, the beloved mother of a very special patient of mine. Maureen was a very thoughtful and caring mother, grandmother, wife, and sister who spent much of her time volunteering and exploring the world around her. She overflowed with love for her family. A teacher in the Pittsburgh Public School system for more than 30 years, Maureen was a dedicated advocate for education with a passion for helping children.
The memory of Maureen Ellis will continue to inspire Ghanaians for generations to come. Her legacy will live on in Ghana, bringing life and opportunity and ensure a brighter future.
Maureen’s School of Hope will open in March 2024.
