Education is very important, as five students from various different countries, schools, and backgrounds we can all agree on that. That is why we are participating in this applied service learning group project. The goal of our project is to raise at least $3000 to help fund the educations of pre-primary, primary, and secondary schools in six rural villages near Tamale, Ghana.

We are working on this project through the class International Environment and Development which is part of the Washington Semester Program at American University. Through this program, we will be spending three weeks in Ghana in March and April travelling around the country and visiting villages where we will be implementing these projects. The class is a total of 14 undergrad students, the two projects that the other groups are working on focus on water filters and micro-loans for women.

The children in the pre-primary school, the Taha School, are aged 3 to 8. They needs pencils, crayons, paper, books, chalk, finger-paints, and funding for food. The children in the primary schools aged 8 to 12 and the children over 12 in secondary schools need the money for scholarships for their school fees, uniforms, bikes, and books which can cost about $50 per year for the primary aged children and about $120 per year for the secondary school aged children. With the money we raise, we will be able to put 30 or more children in school!

Please help us raise the money to fund their educations!
