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.
