About this project

Akwaaba! Welcome to better place. org of You4Ghana e.V! 

You4Ghana e.V supports a school in Obomeng, Kwahu, Ghana for a long time now. Through the cooperation with the school and conversations with the students we realised that the children cannot afford books. However, we believe that reading is essential for the good development of a child. Reading not only improves the language ability and provides to access to knowledge but also stimulates the creativity, imagination and curiosity of a child. 
Currently we are in the process of a establishing in the library in a room which the school doesn’t have any use for. We offer books to borrow, study materials and a quiet and neat place for successful studying. For this purpose we need donations for books, furniture (tables, shelves, benches), paint in order to paint the walls, board games, decoration, study materials such as paper, pencils, markers etc. 
Furthermore we want to build a book club. A group of motivated older students are supposed to manage the lending of the books, keeping the library nice and clean and can discuss certain books and topics together. Two teachers are there to support them. In our rural area the students are lacking opportunities to spend their free time creatively with our children. Therefore we want to organize some free time activities for which we also need donations. 

Thank you for you support!
