SOUTH, GHANA - WORLD VISION PROJECT
- A project initiated by your webmaster.
Howdy! CJ Wallace here. If I could, for about five minutes of your time, I would like to draw your
attention to a project that I initiated.
I have been a World Vision child sponsor of children in the Kintempo South area of Ghana for a number
of years. Currently, I am assisting a child, Jones, from the area, having sponsored him, his family and his village for about
First, why World Vision since I am not much of a religious man? Simply, World Vision’s transparency on how donations are spent
is very good, demonstrating that it is one of the top charities that contributes most of the donations to the actual cause.
Second, why Ghana? I grew up in Ghana, living near a military camp in Kumasi, a town not far away from the Kintempo South area. I
have many fond memories of this country, its people and its topography.
What is the project? The project that I have initiated, and set up through World Vision, is primarily
targeting educational needs in the rural area of Kintempo South, Ghana. Education is the basis to future self-sufficiency.
There are many far ranging and isolated villages throughout Kintempo South where educational support, including availability of
teachers, is minimal. School buildings need to be enlarged, or new schools built, quarters for teachers and their families need to
be constructed, and educational tools, such as desks, text books and ordinary PPnS need to be acquired. These are the targets for
The goal is to raise (Cdn) $15,000.00. It may not sound much for such an ambitious project to us in
Canada, but in places like Ghana, where labour is provided by the villagers themselves, this sum of money can achieve much. So I
ask, please, give a donation and let’s see a people move forward towards their own self-sufficiency.
