Sponsor a school pupil

TEABAG primary aim is to get as many children from the three villages into school and to do this we ask for £15. This amount covers the cost of a school uniform, books and stationery needed by the children each year. TEABAG prides itself in that we keep the contact between the sponsor and the child, this is done by sending sponsors annual photographs and updates about their sponsored child.

Mini Bus

Our next major funding raising drive is to buy a mini-bus for the use of the Vocational College. The college has been built in Mankoadze, the village at the centre of TEABAG's operations. We also sponsor children in two nearby villages, Abrekum and Onaydze. It is about 7 kilometres between Mankoadze and Onayde and double that distance between Abrekum and Mankoadze.

We wish that all of the children, from the three villages could benefit from the wonderful computer equipment and other facilities in the college but we do need to be able to transport the children. There is no bus service available and so having our own mini-bus seems to be the best option.

Mini-buses in Ghana tend to be rough homemade conversion of old vans. TEABAG would prefer to have a decent vehicle that would last many years without major maintenance costs or problems. Having looked around, we think it best to import a decent mini-bus from Holland or Belgium (it has to be left-hand-drive).

Our aim is to raise £10,000 for this appeal. It is a major fund raising project for a small charity but we are sure that we can achieve our aim eventually. If you would like to make a donation, please indicate that it is to be used for the Mini-Bus Appeal, whether you donate through the website or by cheque. Thank you.

Time

Another useful thing you can give is your time. We can of course always use fundraisers in the UK, but we can also provide opportunities to visit the village in Ghana, and help out, either with teaching of English, Maths or Computing (if your skills are in any of those areas) or in organising practical work for our Building & Construction, Electrical Installation, Textiles or Catering Departments

Other Items

Whenever we have the financial means to do so TEABAG pays for a shipping container to be sent to Ghana. In the past, we have sent children and adults clothing, toys, bicycles, mobile phones, books, computers, DVDs, CDs, videos, TVs and sweets. If you would like to be informed when our next shipping container goes, please keep an eye on our website for further information.
