Donors

Thank you.

Thank you for making a difference. Since the opening of our library in July of 2010, we have continued to work hard to make positive changes to improve education at Dekpor Basic School and better the living conditions for the people of Dekpor.

We couldn’t do it without you! We are a small group of highly dedicated volunteers, but we can only do our work because of the ongoing support we receive from generous people like you.

We value your trust. We are grateful for your support. We are committed to making every dollar count.

Thank you for giving.

Thank you for visiting our website, liking our Facebook page, and telling others about the work we do. Together, we are creating hopeful futures.

We have amazing friends in Austria!

Since 2018, Klosterneuburg BG has shown great interest in the work we do in Dekpor after Abraham and Linda spent several weeks giving lessons about the Ghanaian culture and local ways. The staff, students, and parents have embraced our work and fundraise for different intiatives.

The latest, in September 2023, is an ongoing event called Bikeline.  Everyone has been encouraged to utilize their bicycles more frequently!

Be sure to check the Austrian Friends donor page for the full Klosterneuburg BG story!
