|GIFT||AMOUNT||HOW YOUR GIFT HELPS|
|Kindergarten, primary and Junior High School fees and necessities for girls||$100||For a young girl in Ghana, West Africa, being in school opens up doors to greater opportunities in life. It means she gets an education instead of an early marriage. Opportunity instead of an early pregnancy. Education gives skills that have the power to transform her life and the lives of her children, family, community and nation. Education also provides her a chance to give back to her community and inspire other girls to strive for more in their lives.
Your gift enables one girl to choose opportunity, progress and development for one year
|Uniform||$50||School uniforms, shoes, bag, etc for one child for one year|
|After school social and developmental activities||$150||Several studies have shown that barriers to girls achievement in school include gender biases at home and in class, violence, teasing, sexual harassment and insufficient counseling and guidance. Your donation of $50 per term per student will enable us address these issues.|
|Learning materials||$50||Toys and play books for one child for one year|
|Community Sensitization||$1500||In the Ghanaian cultural mindset, girls and women are second rate to men and boys. At best girls are valued as producers of children and highly priced property, acquired and used by men as they please. Love, respect and self esteem are therefore important elements of any quaility education for girls.
This amount enables us to sensitize one community on the values of sending and keeping girls in school, to love and respect their daughters. This process helps men and communities change the current cultural mindset.
|Teacher Sensitization||$1200||25 teachers sensitized on appropriate early childhood education skills and on creating girl-friendly teaching and learning environments in schools.|
|Play ground equipment||$1200||Swings, slides and playground equipment|
|Boy Sensitization||$2000||Sensitization activities targeting 20 preschool and primary school boys to cultivate a mindset that respects and values girls|
THE CENTRE FOR SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT INITIATIVES (CENSUDI) THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR YOUR GIFT.
MAY GOD RETURN A THOUSAND FOLD WHAT YOU HAVE GIVEN FROM YOUR HEART TO OPEN UP DOORS OF OPPORTUNITY TO GIRLS IN GHANA
