SCHOOLS AND WATER FACILITIES

WHY SCHOOL & WATER FACILITIES?

Many children lack access to quality educational facilities. Schools in Northern Ghana most often do not have access to potable water, sanitation facilities, or enough furniture.   Most schools are significantly overcrowded, and classrooms are frequently dilapidated.  To ensure students have access to quality facilities, Create Change builds classrooms, as well as water & sanitation facilities.  We have partnered with many generous individuals, groups of friends, elementary schools, companies as well as our funding partner Building Walls of Wisdom to build these facilities in an effort to support people living in extreme poverty in Northern Ghana.
