meqasa.com, Ghana’s number 1 real estate portal is imploring the general public to donate to a fundraising initiative to help children in impoverished schools gain access to computers.
It is quite disheartening that children from the Hope Christian Academy; a school established in 2002 for little children from the Village of Hope orphanage in the Gomoa Fetteh township in the Central region of Ghana, are deprived of essential facilities such as adequate computers and a modern library, which have become indispensable tools that drive innovation, growth and development due to inadequate funds.
In their bid not to be stifled by inadequate funds or the lack of it, they have been able to self sustain the school primarily through the fees some of the students pay, making up 90% of the revenue generated whiles the remaining 10% of the revenue is received in the form of donations in cash or in kind. Through their hardwork and determination to build a sustainable future for otherwise hopeless children, they have been able to put some of their past pupils through completion of their college education who have gone on to make meaningful impact in their spheres of influence.
Notable among them is Sappah Yahaya, who started his education at the Academy in Grade 5 and proceeded to gain admission to Prempeh College after graduating with distinction. He studied Business and then continued to Ashesi University College with a Mastercard Foundation scholarship to read Business Administration. He is currently employed as the Finance Manager of Hope Christian Academy - the very school that helped shape him into the responsible and hardworking young man he is today.
The Hope Christian Academy has come very far in raising the next generation of leaders, but when push comes to shove, they have no other option than to resort to the general public to help them achieve their goal by helping them raise funds to continue their good work.
Jaysin Caddy, a class 5 student in Hope Christian Academy implores that “ I want to urge the general public to come to the aid of students of Hope Christian Academy in building a library for us and providing computers for us so that we can also be equipped to function in this competitive world. As an orphan with no hope of a future, Hope Christian Academy took me in along with several students with the same plight and have attempted to educate us in becoming wholesome individuals. We believe we can do more and better if we are given the appropriate and relevant tools to function.”
This fundraising initiative is part of meqasa.com’s five year anniversary celebration. Meqasa.com is appealing to the general public to contribute to this fund with any amount to help raise many “Sappah Yahayas”, who will be able to build a better Ghana.
Let’s support a worthy cause, no amount is too little.
