Team Little Foot One Punch
10 Girls at High School
Proposed Implementation Date:
2010 -2011 School year
The Story of this Project...
Team Little Foot One Punch are coming together as a group in order to help ten girls who have been much less fortunate in life. These girls have struggled through their lives to stay in school despite not having adequate books or supplies, but have remained determined to escape the life of poverty their parents continue to lead.
Although these girls have fought hard to gain admission to secondary school, the fees they must pay are more than their families can bear. One year of high school is more than half of most families' incomes in Northern Ghana. These girls will simply not be able to fulfill their potential without external support.
With their capacity for living it up on islands, the ocean, and in far corners of the world, Team Little Foot One Punch are standing up to encourage those around them to contribute to this very worthy cause.
Join Team Little Foot One Punch today to make a world of difference in these ten girls' lives, and watch them progress through news updates, photos, and videos, all because of your generosity.
