THE STORY:

Cape Coast offers some of the best education systems in Ghana and a lot of students, even since early ages, leave their homes in the villages and towns close to the city to be able to take advantage of its schools. However, most of these kids don't live with their parents but are instead hosted by relatives that make them earn their stay by working in the house and are often subject to physical abuse and mistreatment (Ghana has one of the highest rates of child labor). Elohim Covenant Academy is trying to raise the money that is necessary to build dormitories that would allow students to live at school. This will relieve the children from the burden of having to work in order to have a roof on their heads, allowing them to live the childhood that every kid has the right to. I had the opportunity to volunteer as a teacher at Elohim this summer for two weeks and was witness to the detrimental effect that daily abuse and labor bore upon the students, which they experienced with their host families. In fact, one of my students was beat up and forced to do house works daily. The situation was so unbearable for her that she feels compelled to return to the village where her parents reside, abandoning her friends and the great education she was receiving, just to escape the undeserved abuse she experienced daily. Her expectations to continue her studies are now very low, but hopefully Elohim will be able to raise enough funds to allow her, and many others in a similiar situation, to come back to the safety and stability that the school can provide.
