A Better Life for Kids provides life-saving food, medicine, baby formula, clean water, and education opportunities for orphaned and needy children in Ghana. A Better Life for Kids sponsors children to receive a complete education by providing school uniforms, shoes, necessary school supplies, tuition fees, tutoring, a solar-powered lamp for studying at night, and lunch each school day. We are especially proud that nine orphaned children are able to attend a special school for the deaf, where they learn proper sign language, how to read and write, and vocational skills training.
Some of these children are orphans who live in orphanages supported by A Better Life for Kids. Others live in the primitive, rural, and under-resourced Northern Region of Ghana, where there is very little infrastructure or government assistance. This region has the lowest school enrollment rate, highest dropout rate and highest illiteracy rates in the country. The common diseases in the area are Malaria, Meningitis, Hernias, Hypertension, Tuberculosis, and HIV/AIDS. Snakes bites are also common due to the fact that the people in the village are local farmers in the bush.
Daily life is a struggle. These people live without running water and electricity. There are very few employment opportunities, and most of the people in the community earn a living through subsistence farming. Without financial assistance for school, these children are left without the potential of getting an education. Below are some of our precious children!
