Rebecca lives with her uncle because he lives close to the school she attends. Rebecca has parents and seven siblings. Her parents trade and sell small items in a market close to their home. Their income is low and unstable and they struggle to meet the needs of the family. Rebecca is intelligent and wants to become a prominent person in future. Her parents are doing their best but Rebecca needs assistance 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 warm meal, a quality education, school supplies, medical care, and Christian nurture.
