Bridge-To-Africa Connection, Inc., — Providing Desks for Youth


 


 

“I insist that the object of all true education is not to make men carpenters, it is to make carpenters men.”  W.E.B. Du Bois

Now, more so than ever, the thought of taking the necessary steps to ensure a brighter future for the boys and girls currently living in the Jachie and Obo Villages in Lake Bosomtwe District, Kumasi, Ghana, has been on so many minds. Bridge-To-Africa Connection, Inc., and Lake View Foundation has decided to do something about it, and we hope that you can see yourself, working shoulder to shoulder with us, to make a difference in the Senior High School system (which are sustainable) in Ghana – today.

Bridge-To-Africa Connection, Inc.’s GOAL:

To provide desks in the Senior High School, so that more children can have a designated place to sit and learn.

We’re not asking that you board a jet and fly to West Africa. No. We’re asking that you take a moment of your time, wherever you are around the globe to make a commitment to provide funding to pay for desks, which will provide a place for each student to sit and write/study, at the local High School, in the Jachie and Obo Villages, located in Lake Bosomtwe District, Kumasi, Ghana.

Some interesting facts regarding everyday life in the Jachie and Obo Villages in Lake Bosomtwe District, Kumasi, Ghana:

  • Fishing is the primary source of livelihood in the Jachie and Obo Villages.
  • 90% of the children who graduate Elementary school in the Jachie and Obo Villages in Bosomtwe District, Kumasi, Ghana, cannot attend High School. Why? Because their parents/families do not have the necessary funds needed to pay for their children to complete a High School Education.
  • Closing the educational gap by providing the means to educate the children in the Jachie and Obo Villages in Lake Bosomtwe District, Kumasi, Ghana, will increase the odds of each child growing up to be productive citizens with bright futures.
