JUSTINA MOBENDA’S FOUNDATION
PROPOSAL TO RAISE FUNDS TO SUPPORT THE FOUNDATION’S FLAGSHIP PROGRAMME-MOBENDA PREPATORY SCHOOL’S BUILDING
Justina Mobenda’s Foundation is a Non-Governmental Organization that is into the provision of free education for the poor and impoverished children of school going age at New Ofankor in Accra Ghana. Underscoring the importance of education and the love for assisting these poor children, the Foundation has started Mobenda Preparatory School that is providing free education for these children.
MOBENDA PREPARATORY SCHOOL:
The Mobenda Preparatory School started some years ago. The School is situated at new Ofankor in Accra Ghana. The Pre-School, Primary and Junior High School are all housed on the same compound. The Pre-School is constructed with blocks but the Primary constructed with woods but neatly painted. The JHS one is accommodated in one of the rooms in the house of the Founder.
THE POPULATION OF THE SCHOOL:
The School currently has a population of One Hundred and Eighty (180) with a daily average attendance of One Hundred and Fifty Three (153). The children in the school do not pay school fees, feeding fees, as well as exams fees. Everything is provided freely for them by the Foundation including textbooks, exercise books and other teaching and learning materials. Parents of these children do not have the means to pay for their fees and the Foundation cannot abandon them. If not, where lies their future!!!
The teachers are very qualified and are teaching the children very well. Some are university graduates and the others are coming from the Senior High Schools. The school children are equally doing well.
Despite the wonderful achievements of the schools and the future it is promising these children, the school is faced with near collapse. If this happens, where the future of these 180 school children lies and where do they go! The Foundation fears for their future if the school is dissolved for lack of support. All because the Foundation is now challenged financially and can no longer support the school alone financially. Hence, the solicitation of support from donors and philanthropists.
THE PRESSING NEED
The most pressing need of the school at this critical moment is the structure or the building of the school. The school urgently needs an additional classroom by September this year to house the JHS 1 going to JHS 2 and the class 6 to JHS 1. And if this is not accomplished by September this year, the school might collapse thereby jeopardizing the future of these innocent children. The current structure of the school has to be converted into a storey building to create enough classrooms to house the school children. But the in the mean time, a temporal structure can be erected to hose the school children while the main project takes off.
Therefore, the Foundation is appealing to all philanthropies and donors both home and abroad to come on board to save the school from near collapse. You are invited to be part of this good initiative to give a future to these children some of whom might become lawyers, accountants, teachers and even presidents in working to make the world a better place for all of us. Every dollar or cedi donated will be properly acknowledged and accounted for and will be used solely for developing the school. The Foundation is fully registered with the Department Social Welfare in Ghana and this is verifiable.
The total cost of the project is GHS50,000 and its expected to be completed in September, 2016
God Bless You for your kind donation
