In July 2018, eleven pupils from Canford School will be visiting the Awutu-/Winton School near Accra in Ghana: the only free secondary school in the country. As well as working alongside the pupils at the school, they will be engaged in projects such as building picnic benches and rubbish bins, painting classrooms and improving the dormitories. The Canford pupils are each attempting to raise £500 to take to the school and help them buy much-needed equipment. Your donation will make a huge difference to the Ghanaian children who value their education and their school so much.

Thank you
