Mavis is a 7 year old 2nd grader. She 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. Mavis 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.
Mavis is an energetic and friendly student at St. Cecilia Educational Centre where her favorite subject is English. She loves to play ampe and wants to be a nurse when she grows up. Mavis lives with her mother, father and three siblings. Her parents both work in trading and farming to support their family. Her father finds it difficult to care for and provide an education to his children on a farmers income. They live "hand to mouth" with little money left over.
Despite having two parents to contribute to the household, Mavis's parents are not earning enough to educate their children. For only $122 we can provide a year of education for her. Donate as little as $5 to Mavis today!
