We're Making a Difference!
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:
- Health care
- 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)
