Renovation of Accra Village School
All of us are busy. We all have duties and opportunities and challenges and problems and demands. Some of us in the middle of the busyness of life reflect back on our childhood when our lives were easier and simpler. But for many children in the African continent – and for the children of Accra village – even their childhood years are marked with challenges that many of us never had to experience in the developing world. In fact, our inability to relate to or understand their everyday challenges is a barrier we need to overcome before we can serve and give and help. There is a West African proverb that says “Perhaps you do not love me because you do not understand me.” So, let’s pause for a second and imagine their daily experience in school. Sometimes when it rains suddenly the rain comes through the roof or sometimes when it rains so much they cannot even have classes. These are hard situations and distracting contexts for learning. So, what we are asking you to think about helping them and making their lives a little easier. Lets put a sturdy new roof on their school and lets help with other repairs. The cost is low because the labour and materials will all be local but we will also check with local Ghanaians we are in touch with to make sure that all goes well. Your funds can reach across the world and cover children you have never met with a roof over their heads. Help out! Thanks!
