Amuzu lives his mother and six siblings in the small community of Kebenu, in the Volta region of Ghana. His mother is a peasant farmer. She works on a small farm and earns a meager income. She struggles to provide for her family, therefore Amuzu needs support so that he can attend school.
An education is so important in Ghana because it helps to break the cycle of poverty. Families in our sponsorship program earn such a low income that they are struggling to send their child to school. At the International Needs school children would receive a warm meal, a quality education, school supplies, medical care, and Christian nurture.
