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.
Moraine Hills Public School, in Richmond Hill, really blew the top off the goal! With a special thank you to Deborah Snow for introducing DSDO to the amazing Equity Team of Moraine Hills P.S., we also want to recognize the staff, students, and parents. They loaded 40 fantastic Ghana Gift Bags to the brim and had some extra goods for us to send for our Dekpor teachers, also! Not only did they fundraise to pay for the shipping of the GGBs and the extra boxes, but they also paid to sponsor a whole-school luncheon at Dekpor Basic School!View donor page
Wow, wow, WOW!!! What an incredible surprise to receive more than a van-load of fantastic items! This donation included new jerseys, shorts, and socks that will delight the kids in Dekpor! There are some portable nets, drawstring sports bags, soccer balls, gently used cleats, pinnies, and a variety of other goodies. It is difficult to put into words just how much this will positively impact all the students who will benefit! The days in Dekpor are long and difficult, but football is a national treasure that brings much joy ... and a soccer jersey is a most coveted possession!View donor page
A donation was given to purchase books in Ghana to help start filling the shelves of our Dekpor Library. (Thank you LM, a 2010 teacher volunteer, for your successful application!)View donor page
Richmond Rose Public School, a York Region school in Richmond Hill, has undertaken fundraising for DSDO in 2015 as their global initiative organized by their Positive Climate For Learning (PC4L) committee. This committee is comprised of staff, community members and, most important, students who have a voice in all planning and decision making. They raised an astounding $1130.33 by selling friendship bracelets at Valentine's Day! This money was put toward our life-saving food programme where very needy children receive a nutritious breakfast and lunch every school day.View donor page
The Rotary Club of Aurora is one wonderfully generous group!
On April 27, 2015, Carol was invited to be the guest speaker.

We are so thankful for the generosity and support of the Rotary Club of Aurora!View donor page

Many items were put into Ghana Gift Bags, while others were sent separately for use at the school by teachers and students.
