Promoting Literacy, Environmental health, and Community support in Glefe, Ghana

Update posted by LaToya Brackett On Dec 30, 2018

2019 is only a few days away, please take the time to ring in the new year by supporting Glefe Youth Ghana.

GYG is proud to announce some very great news as we launch into the new year.

1. Ten children have graduated into mainstream education thanks to our support of their parents and our literacy campaign.

2. Parents are supporting their children with enrollment in private school in Glefe. (Recall that Glefe does not have any public schools)

3. The literacy campaign has provided these kids with basic reading and writing for their enrollment to school.

4. GYG uses individualized education plans for children between the ages of 4 and 15yrs as to prepare them for a return to school with their peers.

5. Parents also have individual one-on-one sessions supporting skill development to assist with their children's education and managing the resources in Glefe.

If you have not been able to give and would like to please donate today. Please also share this with ONE friend/colleague, if you share with one person, it will assist in getting back to work in January.

Thank you!

"Toilets are hard to come by in Ghana. The country has been performing abysmally with sanitation coverage of only 15 percent, making the practice of open defecation a key sanitation challenge because people do not have access to key basic facilities. Glefe Youth Ghana is building a 10 seater toilet facility with mechanised boreholes and solar panels for the Glefe community.You too can support what we do by donating to us and sharing our fund-raising site far and wide. Be part of change." -- Ishmael Hammond

We want to thank those that have donated. The current amount will be used to replace about half of the roof that is currently falling apart. The location is right on the ocean and the area suffers from various environmental issues that make having a secure roof that much more important.

Please continue to share the campaign, and tell your network that even $1 helps. 1 US dollar is almost 4 Ghanaian Cedis. When the roof is replaced we'll update you.

Thank you!

Thank you all for your support. Special thanks to those who donated in the last few weeks as students from the University of Puget Sound prepare for their journey to Ghana to support Glefe Youth Ghana in person this winter. The funds will support the day of service work to be done and providing funds for teachers.
