Age: 8

School: St. Cecilia


Ernest is an 8 years old 4rd grader. He lives in the Brong Ahafo region of Ghana. Children living in Sub-Saharan countries like Ghana are less likely to complete school. One in 6 leave school before 2nd grade. Ernest lives in a rural community near the Ivory Coast border. Many members of the community are not formally educated and struggle to provide for themselves and their families.

Ernest is an energetic student at St. Cecilia Educational Centre where his favorite subject is math. He loves to play football (soccer) and wants to be a professional footballer (soccer player) like Lionel Messi when he grows up. Ernest lives with his mother, father and three siblings. His father works at a small local hospital, earning a small monthly income. His mother helps to care for the family through peasant farming. His father finds it difficult to care for and provide an education to his children. They live "hand to mouth" with little money left over.

Despite having two parents to contribute to the household, Ernest's parents are not earning enough to educate their children. For only $123 we can provide a year of education for Ernest. Donate as little as $5 to Ernest today!
