Hola gorgeous souls,
I couldn’t be happier (or tearier) to present to you a report + photos of the impact we had on this school in Ghana.
We were inspired to donate through Pencils of Promise after reading the founder Adam’s bio… what a beautiful read!
Here’s the report in of what we were able to achieve!
Prior to the school being built:
- Students did not have access to formal classrooms. Instead, they were taught in deteriorating provisional structures made of mud, thatch and corrugated metal.
- The structures lacked formal windows and walls between rooms. As a result, noise from adjacent classes and the surrounding environment made it difficult for students to focus and concentrate while in class.
- The open-air layout allowed insects to move freely through the facility, disturbing students as they were learning.
- When it rained, water seeped into the ground, causing puddles to form and muddying the classroom floor.
Here’s what we accomplished…
- Building and fitout of new classes
- New ceiling fans, blackboards, benches, desks in the classrooms
- New doors, walls and windows
- 173 students have been impacted by this project
Big love + gratitude,
