Abigail is a 10 year old 2nd grade student in a rural community in Ghana. It's not uncommon for students to be delayed in academic advancement because their families weren't able to pay school tuition on a number of occasions. Of the 72 million primary school-age children that aren't in school about half of them reside in Sub-Saharan African countries like Ghana. Parents in developing countries are increasingly disappointed in the public school systems and prefer to send their children to affordable private schools like Yesu Mmo.
Abigail's parents are divorced and not able to care for Abigail. A relative brought her to live at a small orphanage with a guardian who cares for 20 other orphans and children who's parents were unable to take care of them. Abigail's guardian believes that education is important and is doing all she can to create brighter futures for the children she cares for. Abigail is a funny student who enjoys learning math and hopes to be a teacher. She likes playing football (soccer) in her free time.
Abigail is currently enrolled in a public school, but her guardian believes that an affordable private school would offer Abigail a better education. Together we can make this possible. Abigail's tuition fee includes the cost to attend school ($154) as well the cost for text books/stationary ($42), exercise books ($8), school uniform with footwear ($50), school lunch/bus transportation ($166) cost for the year. Her guardian's compassion and commitment to the needy children of her village is commendable. Let's join her in creating opportunity for Abigail!
