Glefe Youth Ghana, is proud to be a community built and community led non-profit.
Noticing that kids in their community were without access to government schools without traveling far to attend one, Ishmael Hammond, founder, took it upon himself to find a way to guide the children in his community. He bought land, and began to build in places that have been deserted by others due to the difficulties with climate change and access to profitable opportunities.
With the volunteering of two teachers the organization has established itself and has begun the long, yet rewarding task, of providing beginner education to the children in the community. They have also begun feeding kids after classroom time and providing them with a safe space.
Currently the space is not finished. And the most important item for sustaining the organization is a secure space with proper amenities. Please contribute as little or as much as you can, the Glefe community is working to build their community, join them by supporting a communal effort.
From the Founder:
1. School Supplies:We need USD 32.50 to provide Teaching and Learning Materials for 1 child in our Literacy Class for Out-of-School Children. 20 children report daily.
2. Food: We need USD 10.00 to provide a nutritional meal for 20 children daily.
3. Roofing Sheets: We need 50 pieces of roofing sheets. Unit cost is USD 15.00.
4. Classroom Tables and Chairs: We need USD 40.00 to purchase a set of classroom tables and chairs.
5. Used Laptops: We need USD 150.00 to purchase a used laptop or computer.
6. Administrative Costs:We need approximately USD 300.00 a year to maintain our non-profit status and registration in Ghana, our online presence, printing costs, and for the electricity fees. We own our land and building, but may need small amounts for maintenance.
7. Volunteer Teacher Allowances:We have two volunteer teachers that we provide small allowances to ensure as community members they too are being served.
This winter, a group of students from the University of Puget Sound will be going to Ghana. Currently, the students are speaking with Ishmael to collaborate on how best they can support the organization. They are gathering donations to bring with them to Ghana. They will also be present for a day of service. In this day they will help set up the space, paint the building, and even build a small library. Some items they cannot bring with them to Ghana, and the funds here will support the items that need to be purchased in country.
