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

UPDATE: Comfort is still under the care of an orphanage. The orphanage caretaker's husband passed away in November 2013, leaving her with less financial resources to take care of the children.

Comfort is an 11 year old 4th grade student 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.

Comfort's mother died and she was in the care of her elderly father, who had a difficult time taking care of her. He brought her 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. Comfort 's guardian believes that education is important and is doing all she can to create brighter futures for the children she cares for. Comfort is a smart student who enjoys reading and studying English. She wants to be a lawyer when she grows up.

Her guardian believes that an affordable private school would offer her a better education. Together we can make this possible. Comfort'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. Her guardian's compassion and commitment to the needy children of her village is commendable. Let's join her in creating opportunity for Comfort!
