We have chosen a village that is worth your attention and needs your help!
Adanu is a unique organization because it focuses on collaboration, not charity. Our goal is to empower rural communities in Ghana to build their own schools, toilets, libraries and computer labs, and create a clean water source. While sustainable development is a hot theme in 2016, Adanu has been working this way since 2002! We spend months talking to a community – its Elder Council, informal leaders, PTA, Head Teacher and staff teachers – before putting one brick into a building.
The Adanu team takes the time to introduce new ways of collaborating within the village itself, as well as key local and national government leaders who can play important roles in achieving the community’s goals.
That’s why we are turning to YOU - someone who wants to help people who are working to help themselves!
We have chosen a village that is worth your attention and needs your help.
At first glance, Agotime-Agordeke is a typical village in the Volta region – one rundown, concrete-block, three-classroom school, with five other classrooms located in thatched sheds or under trees. But on closer observation, they have already molded nearly 1,000 bricks as a sign of their willingness to work for what they want.
We see a community here driven by purpose and a sense of pride and engagement. Agordeke is engaged, hospitable, and focused on giving a life filled with opportunity and hope to their children. They are looking for empowerment through partnership.
In this season of giving, we ask you to help us keep making a difference! Become a fundraiser for Adanu and support our partnership with Agordeke!
