Child Sponsorship Programme Launch

Child Sponsorship Programme Launch

Date Posted: 24/03/2014
Volunteer West Africa and our sister organisation Partner West Africa are appealing for individuals or families from the international community who are able to sponsor a vulnerable young child to access education in Ghana.
Volunteer West Africa and our sister organisation Partner West Africa are appealing for individuals or families from the international community who would be prepared to sponsor a child in Ghana.

Run alongside a VWA & PWA appeal to raise some 10,000 GBP to build and equip a charitable childcare/nursery centre in the community of Oshieye, our recently launched child sponsorship programme has been designed to ensure that this facility is sustainable and can be offered free of charge to the community.

Education, food, clothes, and healthcare will be delivered through the centre to the most underprivileged children in the area. Sponsors are therefore asked to make a small monthly contribution that will help VWA to deliver these services to each child who attends the facility. The children range in age from 2 years to 5 years and none have attended school or childcare before.

In the first week of launching the sponsorship programme, Volunteer West Africa team members and volunteers have received commitments equivalent to approximately 2000 GHc per month on an ongoing basis. This is a fantastic start and we would like to sincerely thank everyone who has contributed or helped! Already 20% of the 86 children who attend the facility have found a sponsor.

Sponsorship packages start from just over a fiver per month so please click here for more information on how you can help like to lift a vulnerable young child and their family out of poverty. Thank you.
