What does it take to give a scholarship to a needy child in Ghana?

Scholarships for needy children involve more than you might expect. Here are the key items/costs associated with giving a child a scholarship. Total cost for one child still amounts to less than a dollar a day.

  1. Healthcare – Children can have easily curable diseases that need to be addressed for the child to be able to focus on learning
  2. Clothing and shoes – In a cash society, one of the criteria of a “needy child” is one without shoes and tattered clothing.
  3. Books, notebooks, pencils, etc. – When parents can’t afford flip flops, books don’t make the priority list, so that needs to be provided.
  4. School fees
