Erica lives with her parents and three siblings in the small community of Doblogonno in the greater Accra region of Ghana. Erica is always happy when coming to school because at school she will have a hot meal and also play with her friends. Her father is an artist and her mother is unemployed. Their income is low and unstable and Erica needs support to 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 receive a meal, quality education, school supplies, medical care, and Christian nurture.
