Meet Raymond!

Raymond dropped out of school at Primary class 2 because of his reading problem. He was abused at school and home because of his poor marks. He joined other children in the streets and finally felt free! 

This is the situation that confronts thousands of children with learning difficulties in Ghana. They risk failing to reach their future dreams.

With your support however, these children can learn to achieve their educational potential.  This is the aim of SAP’s “Road to Education” campaign.

Join our campaign now to give out-of-school children with learning difficulties the chance of going back to school. Click here to donate.
