Education can change the entire course of a child’s life in rural Ghana
Education is “the passport to human development.” Sponsor-a-Classroom gives quality education to children who would otherwise be working or on the streets. Education is the most powerful, sustainable resource to help our children change their lives and their communities.
Access to top school teachers, school supplies, and educational books are scarce and expensive in rural Ghana. Discover how you can help and meet the classrooms of Happy Kids below.
Pick a classroom
Read the profiles of each classroom and choose which one you’d like to support
Connect with the Teacher
After signing up to empower your classroom you will receive an overview on the class and ways to connect with the teacher directly if you wish to do so
Communicate with the Students
You will receive letters or drawings from the children in your classroom once a term, and have a chance to exchange letters, lessons or knowledge
Watch them Learn & Grow
The greatest gift is that of empowerment. You provide the foundation for which our teachers and children can build a better tomorrow for themselves
Education requires sustainable support.
When you Sponsor-a-Classroom, your contribution keeps our school running.

Many families in rural Ghana are forced to make a difficult choice for their children:
- Sacrifice everything (if you are lucky enough to be able to do so ), and give your child an education, a change to dream, play and create.
- Send your child to work as early as age 5 to support survival of the family - water, shelter, food.
