Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world … Nelson Mandela
As a community based non profit organisation, we aim to be a positive influence in various communities around the world. We were therefore grateful to be given the opportunity, with help from the diverse donors, to be able to do the same in Ghana.
A donation consisting of school and sporting items such as books, pens, pencils, chalks and footballs were given to the pupils and teachers of the Bomaa Seventh-day Adventist School situated in the Brong Ahafo Region of Ghana, West Africa on the 15th of May 2015. For two years running, this school has taken home the first place prize in the yearly interschool’s football competitions despite the lack of resources. Can you imagine what they can accomplish with the adequate help?
On the day of the presentation, the Evergreen PA team were met by staff, pupils and community leaders who gladly received the items with joy. They gave a tour of their school environment and shared their concerns, hopes and aspirations with our team. As a team, we believe in the words of Confucius that “Education breeds confidence. Confidence breeds hope. Hope breeds peace”. We hope to return in the near future to add to the efforts that the community is already putting in place to ensure that these children are well equipped for their futures ahead.
We have produced a video of the presentation below:
We returned a few years later in 2018 to see how our support has helped the school, you can see a video of the visit from Gabriel below:
