30 percent of the population in Ghana live on less than $1 a day and 54 percent living on less than $2 a day.  (


The average monthly rent for a 1 bedroom apartment in downtown Ghana = $1,364  - Average Monthly disposable income: $360

The average monthly rent for a 1 bedroom apartment in downtown downtown Atlanta = $1,269 - Average Monthly disposable income = $3,197


My name is Eric Thompson and I'm going to Accra Ghana in August of 2016. When I was told that I couldn't help everybody in the world my response was "...but I can help one". Please donate to help a few kids who are in need of food, a medicine to stay and money for school teachers. While they have some form of free public education, the good teachers are leaving because they living expenses are too high.  In my travels to places throughout the world I've met families and children in need of food, shelter, medicine and education.   The donations I receive from this campaign help 3 famlilies in Ghana with rent, food and education.  

Alone I don't have the resources (money) to help everybody.  With your help, we will be able to help more than one.

Thank you for your help.
