Education transforms victims of exploitation into survivors and change-makers. The children at our Care Center in Ghana are growing up, and we want to equip them with everything they need to pursue their dreams and create change in their country. The Touch A Life kids begin with primary education (elementary school) and then progress to secondary (middle school). If the student passes the necessary exams, he or she can then attend boarding school, which is the Ghanaian equivalent of high school in the United States. From there, they will move into our Life Academy program and choose to attend college or pursue a trade through a vocational training school.
We need your help to raise the funding needed to provide for the children as they continue in their education and strive to become leaders in their communities.
Education Sponsors commit $125 per month, or $1,500 per year which is applied to private school fees, books, uniforms and transportation to and from school. Each student will maintain a child sponsor to provide basic needs such as food, clothing, housing and medical expenses.
If you would like to contribute to the Education Fund but cannot make a yearly commitment, we would still appreciate your support! You may set up a monthly donation of any amount to support the education of the children in our programs.

Each Child Sponsor is paired up with a child in our program in Ghana, West Africa. Touch A Life will mail you the child’s biography as well as information about how to communicate with your sponsored child.
