Please consider making a much needed contribution to this important project
You can learn more about Ghana 4E here:
Please visit our crowd funding page at You Caring.com! http://www.youcaring.com/ProjectAfrica and our Facebook Page - Ghana 4E.
We update the You Caring page as well as our Facebook page, Ghana 4E, with our progress and photos so you can keep abreast of the project's progress. Please consider donating to this cause. It is tax deductible under our 501 c 3 designation and any amount you can give will help immensely!
Pictured below is the current computer class offered in the public school of Omanjor, Ghana. 5 students to a computer. We will teach 40 students per day in our classrooms and each student will have their own computer. They will learn computer skills to help enable them to thrive in a global economy. Our Computer Repair class will also teach entrepreneurship and cooperative effort.
What you can do to help:Please donate your extra computer/Lap Top. We will wipe the hard drive clean and prepare it for distribution. Also, if you have any programs or manuals, flat screen monitors, or other computer accessories that you want to discard, please think of us! We are also collecting cameras, cell phones, light weight clothing, shoes, sandals and high protein packaged foods. I am serving as a drop off point so you can bring your donation to the shop or I can stop by and pick it up if you wish.
Funding: It will cost quite a bit to set up the school, the shop and ship to Africa! We need to install solar power in the building because there is a power crisis there. So we are having fund raisers. We have created a Crowd Funding page on http://www.youcaring.com/projectafrica where you can easily make a donation and are holding additional fund raisers such as Fourth Friday cultural dinners at the Kafe. We seek corporate contributions as well. Since we are a 501 (c) 3, your contributions are tax deductible!
Tea room tips are donated toward shipping expenses.Come for a luncheon and support a good cause at the same time!
