The Ejura Spot team, led by Seidu Yahya, are delighted to have been selected for the US Ambassador to Ghana’s Self-Help grant. The $1895 grant is to provide a solar power system for the library to enable users read at night with consistent and free electricity.
I feel super excited as this is a great relief to us since we do not have to worry much about the running cost of electricity at the spot. Funds that would have been used to settle electricity bills can now be channeled to other areas to create continuous and lasting educational impact on our community. This is going to be a game changer for the Ejura Spot since we will be affected by the unstable electricity connections. Students can now read at both day and night in order to separate ignorance from poverty. This will go a long way to raise good readers and leaders for tomorrow.”
We all congratulate Seidu and the Ejura team on this successful bid for support for their community. We are delighted to see the impact of our fundraising and social entrepreneurship unit becoming clear across our network, and encourage all our volunteers to reach out for local funding opportunity.
Last week, we were similarly delighted to report that Anita Esi Eleh won a $5000 grant from Global Youth Mobilisation to extend IT education in Gomoa Manso. We will continue to post opportunities to our volunteers on our WhatsApp feed, and offer support in completing applications.
