Who Are We
‘It is today we must create the world of the future.’ Eleanor Roosevelt
This quote brings to mind the derailed future of a village, Adeemmra located in the deep interior of Ghana. Children are the future and thus, parents must lay the foundation for them to succeed and Education is a key component of this foundation.
Sadly, in a village like Adeemmra, the last thing on a parents mind is education. Parents’ main concern for their children is how to put food on the table. Education is not a priority because of the costs of simple supplies like pens, books, bags, and uniforms. Parents cannot afford to buy these children simple pens or books to go to school let alone, uniforms. From the age of 5, a child is taught to walk an average 9 miles to get a bucket of water or walk 9 to 20 miles to get food from the farm without learning simple ABCD.
This is not a tale; how do I know all this? This is how I grew up. Unfortunately, 16 years have gone by since I left the village of Adeemmra and yet children are still struggling to access the above supplies. It is disheartening to go to a daycare center in the U.S. to see so many books and toys in dumpsters. It is even more depressing to know that thousands of computers and books go to waste in schools when they can be reused elsewhere. Sometimes, I cannot come to terms with the fact that books that are thrown away each month in the U.S. Would be enough for every single child in Ghana for a whole year.
Your donation of books, pens, toys, and cash will help the Children of Adeemmra learn how to read and write. Your cash donation will help move the above-needed supplies to the disadvantaged children of Afram Plains.

Please lend a helping hand, provide hope for children between the ages 2 and 14. Help these children learn simple ABCs or how to read and write. Support Julia Dalia and Frederick Odame by donating books, pens, old computers, school bags, clothes and cash for the poor and innocent children of Afram Plains.
