Access to Education
EDUCATION + MEDICAL
In 2010, when we were just getting started, a young boy called Daniel was unable to attend school as he had a blocked urethra from birth. His parents were too poor to afford to buy painkillers or surgery, that was recommended. G-lish paid for the painkillers and a simple surgery that cost around $US100 dollars. In return, G-lish asked the parents to weave 6 baskets. Daniel was healed after the operation and his parents now earn enough to not only support Daniel in school, but in a private school where the teaching is superior. They have also bought him his own bicycle. The weaver, Julie, is Daniel’s Mum.
It is stories such as Daniel’s that show how G-lish is empowering families in Ghana, giving them the opportunity to send their children to school, provide for their own needs, and the needs of their families.
