Together with 4 donors we made sure Patricia's school cost was paid for the 2013-2014 academic school year! Now we are fundraising for Patricia's 2014-2015 academic year
UPDATE: Since being accepted to nKoso in the spring of 2013, Patricia is remains under the care of an orphanage. Please help us guarantee an education for Patricia in the upcoming 2014-2015 academic school year.
Patricia is 12 years old and in 4th grade. She lives in a rural community in the Brong Ahafo region of Ghana. Many people in the community are not formally educated and struggle to earn sustainable income. It is not uncommon for students education to be disrupted due to financial instability. If student's parents aren't able to pay their school fees, students are sent home and their progress is delayed.
Patricia's parents have both passed away and she lives with a guardian who cares for 20 other orphans and children who's parents were unable to take care of them. Her grandmother brought her to the small orphanage when she was not able to provide for her granddaughter. Patricia is an energetic student who likes learning, especially in her Religious and Moral Education class. She enjoys playing football (soccer) and hopes to be a professional footballer when she is grows up.
Patricia needs $432 to go to school for a year. This includes the cost of uniform and shoes, text books and workbooks, stationary, transportation and lunch. Donate towards Patricia's education today!
