With Your Help, We Can Change Children's Lives for the Better
In Africa, an alarming number of children drop out from basic education because of poverty. They are encouraged to work rather than learn because parents cannot afford to send their children to school and support their family at the same time.
Young girls are often left behind when it comes to education, while sons are encouraged to attend school. Support our project in child protection, quality education for all children, and sanitation. This will decrease child labor, trafficking of children, and help reduce child mortality.
Through the Lighten a Childs Future Foundation Inc., you can help brighten the future for some of these children. We believe that education can help a child move beyond poverty and give that child the tools to reach his or her true potential.
Started Small & Growing to Meet Demand
The foundation created, staffs and supplies a school in Kasoa New Town, Ghana. We started in a rented three-bedroom apartment with 20 students and now have 160 students with more on a waiting list.
Recently, the foundation acquired land and we are in the process of building a new school. Your donation can help us accept more children in need as well as buy equipment such as buses to transport the children to the new school and supplies such as books, school bags and etc.
We are also looking to help children in other communities and countries in Africa. Currently, we are corresponding with community leaders in Monrovia, Liberia, to see if we can make a difference for the children in this community as well.
We Cannot Do It Alone
"It takes a village to raise a child," according to an African proverb. While the proverb is believed to have originated from the Nigerian Igbo culture, this sentiment has been in existence in Africa for centuries and there are numerous proverbs from different cultures across the continent that convey the same message in different ways.
The Lighten a Childs Future Foundation Inc. embraces this village sentiment as well. That's why we help the community by organizing a variety of cleanups and projects, including clearing mosquitoes from drains, addressing public sanitation issues and improving streets. A strong community with an improved standard of living along with education can brighten the future of many children.
According to UNICEF.Malaria remains the largest single killer of children in Ghana, taking toll of approximately 20,000 children death every year. Lighten A Childs Future Foundation Inc. (LACFFI) is designed to draw attention to the crisis affecting children and families across the nation or the globe and help promote equality for all children.
Donate today and join our "village" of supporters helping to create a better future for a child in need. The Lighten a Childs Future Foundation Inc. is an international charity dedicated to improving the lives of children in Africa through education and assistance to the community.
