Together with 9 donors we made sure Matilda's school cost was paid for the 2013-2014 academic school year! Now we are fundraising for Matilda's 2014-2015 academic year.

Matilda is 12 years old and in the 6th grade. She attends an affordable private school in the Brong Ahfaro region in mid-western Ghana. Many parents/guardians in Ghana and other developing countries prefer the affordable private school model to the public schools because they believe that they are getting a better education. Public schools, while not incurring a tuition cost, do have hidden fees that can be nearly as costly as low-fee private school tuition costs.

Matilda is a smart and serious student atttending a school called Yesu Mmo in a rural community. Matilda enjoys studying English and wants to be a journalist. One her favorite parts of Yesu Mmo is the school prayer team. She is fortunate to be in school, as students in rural communities are less likely to attend school than students living in urban areas.

Matilda's mother died in a terrible car accident and she was left to the care of her stepfather. Her mother left behind 6 other children and Matilda's stepfather works as a petty trader to support them all. This is becoming increasingly difficult as business in the area has been declining. His income is not reliable and the wages that he does earn are used to feed his family. Together we can make a difference to this family and ensure that Matilda will continue to receive an education at Yesu Mmo. Let's come together to raise $189 so Matilda can enhance her future!
