Together with generous donors we made sure Clement's school cost was paid for the 2013-2014 academic school year and the 2014-2015 academic school year! Now we are fundraising for his 2015-2016 academic year.
Clement is 15 years old and entering 8th grade this fall. He lives in a rural village of the Brong Ahafo region of mid-western Ghana. Of all the primary school-age children of the world about half of them live in Sub-Saharan African countries like Ghana. One in six students living in this region of the world leave school before the 2nd grade.
Clement is an energetic student who likes reading and playing football (soccer). His favorite subject is integrated science, and he would like to be a medical doctor when he grows up. He lives with his mother and father and three siblings. His parents are peasant farmers, and their profit is not enough to provide for the family. Peasant farmers cultivate crops and sometimes animals on a very small scale. It is not uncommon for people in Ghana to feed their families with crops grown on a small plot of land, but selling their harvests does not provide sustainable income.
Clement's family is struggling to provide an education for their son. Together we can guarantee a year of education for this energetic student. Even a donation of just $5 would make a difference in improving Clement's future!
