JUNE 2021 - GREAT NEWS !!! 2000 SHOES ON THEIR WAY
Shoes on their way to our remote communities. We had an amazing promise of 2,000 pairs of trainers and school shoes from Shoe Aid.(www.shoeaid.co.uk) Many of our school children, particularly girls, have no shoes for the very long, rough walk to school. The girls also have to make longer walks now to find clean water. The Icing on the cake was a terrific offer from Samamiah Shipping Enterprises
They will not only collect from Nottingham and ship to Ghana but carry them all the way to Northern Ghana. Once there, our team will distribute them to the neediest. We look forward to sharing photos with you!
JUNE 2021 - Desks at Cheshugu and Wayamba
We built Cheshugu last year but the opening was delayed as most schools were shut for a year. Now we have desks there too, thanks to Stephen Palmer’s legacy. Stephen and his partner Eileen have helped us almost from the very start. We are so privileged. Wayamba was our completely re-built new school, (with help from CSRC). The local M.P. was able to provide desks here. The increasing input we have from local people really encourages us and we hope it will lead to more support. We are a small charity
with a mammoth task and need all the help we can find.
Both of these schools were handed over to Ghana Education Service (GES) in February.2021. GES recruit and pay teachers and take full responsibility for running and care of the schools. But local education funding is limited and rarely includes desks.
