Compassion for Humanity

Ghana

Compassion for Humanity (C4H) is a non-profit foundation dedicated to educating and supporting the health of children in rural areas of Ghana. The foundation has its own school, Compassionate Kids school in Adawso-Akuapem near Koforidua, in the Eastern region of Ghana. The school offers a kindergarten, primary and junior high school education to children from 2 to 17 years old.

The community of Adawso is a village mostly made up of households involved in small-scale farming, often associated with poverty and a low standard of living. As a result, a lot of children cannot attend good schools to get a better chance attending good senior high schools.

For this project, we fund the costs of teaching and learning materials for the school, children and teachers, providing them with workbooks, textbooks and other stationary to help them develop better motivation towards learning. We also cover the tuition fees, uniforms, shoes, daily meals, health insurance and other learning materials for 20 children from low-income and homeless children who attend the school. 

This project is largely supported thanks to the online crowdfunding event co-hosted by Peter Niuewland College in Amsterdam in 2020.
