SAVE THE SCHOOL
The project owner
The goal of the project is to pay off the school ground for the Liberty School in Ghana. At the end of July the founders of the school need to pay off the ground, otherwise the school has to close and the 150 children can no longer receive education. It's important to pay off the school ground so that the school continues to exist and offer proper education for local kids. Education is one of the most important things!
The Liberty School is founded by a local couple with the purpose to provide education for the poorest children, who can’t pay their own school fees. For a small amount the children in the little village are able to go to school now. Since 2000 the founders have been providing education for many poor children in the little village Asienmpong nearby Kumasi in Ghana. The past years they could rent the land, the school is built on, but this July they have to pay off the whole amount. If they are able to buy the land, the school will continue to provide education for 150 children.
In July 2014 the Liberty School has to pay off the whole amount to off the land. When the land is officially theirs, the school can continue to provide education. And they will be able to get the correct papers to receive support from the government. The Liberty School currently survives on donations. With your help we can make a difference and give the school and the local children a future. Let's GET IT DONE!
- The Liberty School is founded by a local couple with the purpose to provide education for the poorest children who can’t pay school fees. For a small amount the children in the little village can go to school now. Besides that they established the Liberty Home, an orphanage home where they provide accommodation for 20 orphans. By buying the ground, it will official be the Liberty’s and they will get government support. Many children will continue having education and have a future.
Why (Project owners drive)
The Liberty School is established by two passionate people. They had hardly anything but still wanted to help the children who need even more help. In 14 years, they build up a lot: a school with 6 classrooms and accommodation for 20 orphans. It would be so sad if everything disappears because they can’t pay the land. Education is one of the most important things, it is like the snowball effect: when one person gets well educated, he can help his family/friends and teach them and then they can teach their friends/family and so on.
Relation between the project partner (excecution) and the project owner (fundraising)
I have been volunteering in Ghana for 5 months at the Liberty School and orphanage. I met these wonderful people and it became my second family and home. I really respect these people in how they reached this already & how they always stay positive.
Pay off the school ground
- Paying off the school ground will cost 10.000 cedi's, that's 4000 euro's (depending on the current rate). The Liberty has to pay this at the end of July 2014. When this is done, the land is their own and they can start preparations to expand the school.
