Help us Fix Our Car for a Chance to Win West African Painting!
Since May 2019 our organizational car a 2008 Nissan x-trail is in disrepair- the engine is shot- and we need the car so that we can bring all of our students to the better school. We also need the car so that we can reach remote communities to educate them about how to stop child trafficking and bring our children back to school.
We need to raise $4000 to completely fix our car so that our life saving work can continue, and most importantly so that our sponsored students can have the best possible future, and become the human rights advocates and innovators that Ghana needs.With your help we know we can raise the funds to make this happen, because together we make a difference!
We have currently raised $1,500 meaning we are almost half way there! We only need $2,000 more to start the repairs on our car and we have just launched a campaign to get us there! Let your friends and family know that if they donate $50 or more before January 31,2020 their name will be put in a drawing to win this fabulous painting:
Additionally, by supporting us to fix our car you will be contributing to a sustainable non profit organization, and we appreciate your help so much that we would like to offer you a discount to volunteer with us: for one month of living at our volunteer house it is usually $250, but for you as a donor we will reduce it to $180 a month to come and have accommodations in Ada Ghana while volunteering with the Volta Revival Foundation!
Currently the Volta Revival Foundation sponsors the education of 18 student survivors of domestic and fishing slavery by providing their education, welfare, meals, health, family, counseling, music and arts education, and all other essential needs . Recently we were able to enroll most of our students in a high performing school where we belive they will thrive, however about 6 of our students cannot attend the new school due to the distance between their village and the school. For those 6 students their current school is the lowest performing in the district, and we know that if we can't move them, their chance of success in high school and university are halved.
Additionally, we provide education to communities with high rate fo child trafficking, to inform them about the evils of slavery, and methods of reporting child disappearances. We also work directly with the government and schools to begin a monitoring project so that we are able to track child disappearances from school.
We need our car to be working in order to do all of this which is why we are reaching out to you in hopes that you or someone you know may be able to help.
