Text Book Campaign for November & December 2023

Help us raise $6000

We need your help!

Our oldest students at Dekpor Basic School have a new curriculum, but they do not have the corresponding text books.

Let's set them up for exam success!


Here's the link to donate (and yes, we do receive 100% of your donation using this method):




*If you choose to donate, in the third section, you can bypass contributing to their platform by finding "Other" in the drop-down menu and typing in $0.

At a Glance

We work in Dekpor, Ghana where all residents live below the poverty level and face a daily struggle to survive.

Our areas of focus:

  • Education
  • Water
  • Nutrition
  • Health care
  • Sanitation
  • Business Start-Ups
  • Sponsorships (children and educators)

One of our directors lives in Dekpor — we are able to work with the residents of Dekpor to best service their needs. Our overhead is minimal (our only expenses are maintaining our domain status, annual financial statements, and foreign exchange costs), so your donation goes exactly where you allocate it! We are volunteers who work hard to make the most of every dollar donated.

Dekpor School Development Organisation is a registered Canadian charity and recognized NGO in Ghana. (Since 2011)
