Around 263 million of the world’s children are out of school and about one third of these children live in West and Central Africa.
We know that education matters. We know it. We know the difference it has made to our lives and the potential it has to make a real difference in the lives of countless people around the globe.
But ask yourself what would happen if we lived in a place so desolate it did not have a functioning school? What hope would our children have in making a future for themselves?
What if there were schools but we didn’t have the money to give our children this kick-start in life, with school fees, even simple books and pens, a luxury we couldn’t afford?
What if we were so poor we had no choice but to send our youngest children to work every day just so our family could survive?
These are the challenges facing thousands of families living in rural Ghana.
Humanitas charity aims to give these honest, hardworking, desperately poor people the chance of a better life.
We build schools in these remote, forgotten areas. We populate the schools with qualified teachers. We give families and children stuck in this never-ending cycle of poverty the building blocks for a life that involves more than just barely surviving for another week.
