5745- 45th Avenue Drayton Valley, AB
Awaso Fundraiser May 26 2018
Each year on the last Saturday in May we hold a silent/live auction dinner event. The purpose is to try and raise the shortfall in our operating costs over and above the sponsorship revenue we make on each student.
The operating costs for 300 students in grades pre-school to grade 7 are approximately $70,000.00 US. We feed the students two meals per day and hire certified teachers for the upper grades and purchase the Ghana government curriculum materials for each grade. Our school has a class A ranking which will allow our grade 9 graduates to attend any high school and even university in Ghana. This is the first “rural” school to achieve class “A” ranking.
We sincerely appreciate the generosity of those that attend year after year and it is a time to catch up on news from Ghana via Father Paul Agyeman-Duah Mensah each year. He comes to North America for a month and visits us here in Drayton Valley as well as travels to San Jose, California where he has another group, “Awasohope”, fundraising for the school.
Hope you can attend and tickets are available at Century 21 office 780-542-3223 or call 780-542-5782.
