Sponsoring a child helps us continue our work here in Ghana. There are a variety of ways you can change the life of a child, whether it be through providing them a cooked meal everyday, covering their school fees and associated costs, or placing ‘at risk’ children in our safe house to get them off the very adult streets. 100% of your donation goes directly to the projects at B.A.S.I.C.S International
School in Ghana
Primary school is free and compulsory in Ghana, however the financial burden of uniforms, books, and stationary is often enough to keep children truant. In addition to these costs, families are also losing the daily income that their children would be generating at work. Supporting associated costs with primary school children can make a huge difference.
Secondary High School is not compulsory in Ghana, nor affordable to most students. B.A.S.I.C.S commits to helping each child who obtains admission.
The Ghanaian Academic Year commences in September, and ends in August the following year. Sponsorship covers school fees, levies (PTA, etc), uniforms, text books and stationary.
