Sponsorships:

kid-at-rural-schoolSponsor a child for $90/term or $30 per month.
This provides for uniforms, books, supplies and more.

Help us place a child in a classroom seat to learn.  Illiteracy is running at 60% here.  Give our children a chance!  Imagine giving a child a lifetime of choices and opportunity that will impact generations!  You can do that!

Children living in poverty do not dream about their future.  Some live day-by-day and ultimately become hawkers…selling small items to survive.  With an education, you can give them a dream.

Here is your opportunity to sponsor a child living in poverty (in West Africa) a chance to attend Joy2theWorld Preparatory School (KG).  Tuition is $90 for 3 months (or $30 per month).

Additional fees for uniform, shoes, etc. amount to $60.

If you sponsor one of our children, we will send you their pictures, art work and other details.  Maybe they will share their dreams with you!

Share this with your children and create an international experience for them!

We appreciate your financial support.  It won’t happen without you.  You can move this vision into reality.  Thank you!

 

Volunteering:

Some-Kids-who-want-to-go-to-school

You can volunteer to come to Ghana for 2 months (July-August) to teach Professional Development classes to teachers here in the rural community of Ghana.  Many of our teachers have a high school education and are starving for new ideas and new approaches for reaching our children.  The children will win from this too!  If you have some teaching experience, you have a gift to give.  If you want to create your own “lab” or research study, you are welcome.   If you want to experience a different culture over a short period of time….we have it here for you!  You can live in a rural community, meet the community leaders (Chiefs, Assemblymen, Director of Education, etc.), and travel on the weekends to experience the beautiful sites of Ghana.

Your agreement to teach includes room & board and the opportunity to experience life in a totally different culture…an adventure you will NEVER forget!

Ghana is located in West Africa, a democracy noted for its Peace and great sports team (soccer)! Yes, it IS very HOT! but August is one of the cooler of the HOT months (12 out of 12)! 🙂

 

Teaching:

Kids-at-St.-Joseph-the-Worker-2013-e1361108322620

This opportunity is for someone with a desire to Make a Difference for children ages 4-8 who need preparation to attend 1st grade. These children lack the support at home to learn what we take for granted….they need to know their colors, numbers and even the self discipline to be in a classroom. They come from loving homes but their parents are probably illiterate and poor.

We have an opening for an Early Child Education Teacher or teacher assistant (and now, a 1st grade teacher!) willing to commit to one year of teaching young students. This is a longer commitment and will require some “rolling up of our sleeves” and transformation.

You will work closely with a Ghanaian teacher….after all, our children need to be taught Ghanaian culture along with their numbers, right? So the opportunity is for this volunteer to learn so much about Ghana, children and love here.

For those of you out there who need work but can’t find a job right out of college….imagine this international experience on your resume! But the greater experience is meeting and living among wonderful Ghanaian people.

Come join these teachers for the summer (Professional Development Classes) or for the next school year.

Consider this invitations to get in the game!  Yes, you will be responsible for your airfare, some personal expenses. But what you will get in return will far exceed anything you spend.

If you think true happiness comes from reading an article in a magazine, think again.  You will find happiness from giving of yourself.  You can make a huge difference in the lives of others here…I promise.  So, get off the bleachers and on to the field!
