Education Fund for Vulnerable Children in Ghana
Organized by: Caroline Baggott
School Fees Paid
February 03, 2017
EVENT DATE Jun 01, 2016
Myriam Chbani and myself, Caroline Baggott, are working to raise $14,000 to pay for the education of the Drifting Angels children.
The Drifting Angels Children’s home was recently shut down by the Social Welfare department in Ghana. In addition to other discrepancies in the home, it was discovered that Mama, the head of the home, had left months before without notice and the children were left alone and to their own devices.
Since the house was closed at the beginning of August, the children have finally been reunited with their families! However, the way it happened with the children being left on their own and the swiftness with which they were removed from the house, no one was prepared. Therefore, we are raising this money SOLELY for the payment of school related fees and tuition for the children. This will lift a significant weight off the shoulders of the families caring for them. We believe that by paying for the schooling, we are sure the children are getting their education and the families will be better able to care for them having only to provide food and shelter (financial speaking).
Our plan is to work directly with the social welfare office and the families in a sustainable manner in order to continue ensuring these kids go to school. There will be in country monitoring of the school fee payments and follow up of the kids progress. Starting in September, 15 children will be in Senior High School, 2 in Junior High, 2 in football academies, and about 8 in primary and kindergarten. We need your support NOW more than EVER!! Together we can ensure the best possible lives and futures for these bright and beautiful children!
