Ghana 2018
Chia Methodist Primary School (Eastern Region)
We are committed to donating school supplies annually to a different school and region in Ghana, where the students lack necessary resources to further their education. As poverty is an already exisitng distraction, we aim to eliminate the burden of paying for school supplies on families. The level of preparation at the schools varies for each student, based on their families socioeconomic status. Almost all of the students are in need.
