Back-to-School Backpack Drive

Our students in Ghana are about to end their school year and enjoy a few weeks of summer fun, but our staff is already gearing up for the next school year! Most school supplies are readily available in Ghana, but a good sturdy backpack is a special gift.

This year we are collecting 60 brand new backpacks for each student at our Care Center in Ghana (including a couple of extras, just in case). We have made it easy for you to pitch in and help us check this item off of our pre-school year to-do list. To purchase a backpack for a child, all you need to do is order one (or a few!) from our Amazon Wish List and have it shipped to our office in Dallas (the address is 7301 State Highway 161, Suite 205, Irving, TX 75039 and our phone number is 214-540-6310). We will be hand-delivering the backpacks during a fall visit.

Thank you so much for supporting the education of these children in a very practical way!

If you would like to donate money for extra school supplies, you can choose “General Fund” in the donation drop down menu. And, as always, if you have any questions, feel free to contact us!
