Nathaniel Image

Nathaniel’s story

I live in Ghana with my 5 siblings and my mom. I am currently in grade 3 and my best subject is creative arts. This is no surprise because drawing is my favourite hobby and I do it all the time! I have really enjoyed school and would really like to continue my studies. Unfortunately, even with my mom's hard work as a seamstress, she will not be able to fund my education for much longer. With your help, I could get the opportunity to continue going to school so that hopefully one day, I can live a life out of poverty. Through child sponsorship, your investment in his life also helps Nathaniel’s family and community.

Kwadwo Image

Kwadwo’s story

I live in Ghana with my 2 siblings and my mom, who works as a trader to support the family. I really like going to school. My best subject is science because it is very interesting. I am not doing the best in math, but I am working to improve. My mom does not know how to read, so she recognizes the importance of getting education. Unfortunately, I will have to drop out of school soon because of the expenses of my education. With your help, I could get the opportunity to continue learning so that hopefully one day, I can live a life out of poverty. Through child sponsorship, your investment in his life also helps Kwadwo’s family and community.

WHAT DOES CHILD SPONSORSHIP MEAN?

Support Image

Support

Sponsorship offers meaningful intervention that raises a child’s self-esteem and aspirations, creating lasting educational and economic opportunities that positively alter the outcome of a child’s life

Quality Education Image

Quality Education

Enhance the quality of education for children by covering school related expenses such as tuition fees, uniforms, shoes, textbooks, as well as afterschool tutoring support. Paying for these school supplies and resources reduces inequality in accessing education and empowers children when they attend school

Wellness Image

Wellness

Provide children with nutritional food to maintain mental, social, and emotional wellbeing. Ensuring healthy diets strengthens educational outcomes within the classroom and decreases absenteeism

Connection Image

Connection

Offer social support by creating a meaningful connection with your child. Learn about your child, their community, and educational goals to boost their confidence and drive. Children are also connected with a local network of supports to assist them through their journey, including staff, alumni, and other mentors.
