Together with 2 donors we made sure Philip’s school cost was paid for the 2013-2014 academic school year! Now we are fundraising for his 2014-2015 academic year.
Philip is 15 years old and lives with his mother and younger brother in a rural community in Ghana, a country in West Africa. He is in junior high at an APS (Affordable Private School) called Yesu Mmo where he is an enthusiastic student who likes to play football (soccer) and dreams of being the FIFA (Federation Internationale de Football Association) president one day. He enjoys studying science and believes that an education will allow him to help his mother.
In 2009 UNICEF reported approximately 1.1 million orphans living in Ghana, so while Philip is fortunate to have his mother, his father died a few years ago. His mother has since struggled to provide for her family. She collects re-usable bags to carry cooking charcoal and sells them in order to earn income for her family, but this is hardly substantial or consistent. Philip helps his mother by looking after his younger brother, but would like to contribute more as he gets older.
Philip is a promising student who deserve to see his dreams come true. His family needs $185 to ensure that Philip will be able to attend school next year. Together we can easily make this possible for Philip and his family. Easing the burden of school tuition will allow Philip's mother to more adequately provide for the needs of her children.
