Allow The Children has expanded to the west African nation of Ghana. We made the initial trips in January to see whether there was something compatible with Allow. There WAS. We found a school ministry, managed and funded under a local church. Like our other ministries, there are strong believers working who know how to reach and minister to their own people. Allow stepped in and funded some remodeling of the small kitchen to enable better nutrition. Better food means better attendance. We provided uniforms for the children who were not able to buy them. We provided books and consumable materials. And-- we have set up a sponsorship program to give some ongoing financial help to this school. In return, we are expecting to see some educated and gospel grounded Ghananian believers rising up from among beggars and street venders and vegetable sellers.
One of our board members and two members from his church traveled to Ghana in June 2014. They taught and preached, worked on a building project, visited in homes and distributed gifts and school supplies to the children.
