Together with 5 donors we made sure Frank's school cost was paid for the 2013-2014 academic school year! Now we are fundraising for Frank's 2014-2015 academic year
UPDATE: Since being accepted to nKoso in the spring of 2013, Frank continues to live in an orphanage that is in need of education assistance. The orphanage caretaker's husband passed away in November 2013, leaving her with less financial resources to take care of the children. Please help us guarantee an education for him in the upcoming 2014-2015 academic school year.
Frank is 13 years old and in 5th grade, attending an affordable private school in a rural community in of mid-western 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.
Frank's parents both died and a relative brought him 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. Frank's guardian believes that education is important and is doing all she can to create brighter futures for the children she cares for. Frank is a shy student who likes to learn. He enjoys many cultural and traditional activities as well as studying science. When he grows up he wants to be a footballer (soccer player).
Frank'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. His guardian's compassion and commitment to the needy children of her village is commendable. Let's support her by creating future opportunity for Frank!
