Dorcas Awuah

Dorcas Awuah Adomah is a second year student at Catholic University College of Ghana. She is pursuing a degree in education to become a teacher, and she hopes to be an inspiration to other children in her area. In September 2014, faced with the decision of dropping out of college, HopE Ghana discovered her situation and offered a partial scholarship to pay her college tuition. Dorcas is the youngest in a family of six children, and was three years old when her father passed away. Her father’s death plunged the family into indescribable financial stress which meant that none of her siblings could attend high school. Thanks to the generosity of a Good Samaritan, who was impressed with her determination to succeed against all the odds, the young girl scraped through high school. Hope for Education Ghana hopes to upgrade its support to a full tuition sponsorship for the last two years of her studies until she graduates in 2017.
