HopE Ghana College Tuition
Belinda is a first year student of Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) studying Actuarial Science. Belinda is enjoying a comprehensive college sponsorship from HopE Ghana. She comes from a family of eight children with elderly parents who are subsistent farmers. This situation put Belinda’s dream of a college education in jeopardy. HopE Ghana discovered Belinda and paid for her to attend college. Without this support, it is very likely that she would be like so many of her peers and never be able to attend school again. This brilliant teenager dreams of becoming a professional actuary, to establish a consulting business that extends a helping hand to needy and poor of society.
Narkie is a final year student of the University of Ghana, Legon-Accra. She is pursuing a degree in political science and information studies.

Narkie hopes to get her masters degree in international relations with the objective of becoming a market research analyst so she can give back to her community in the future.
Abiba is a first year student in the Nurses and Midwifery Training College at Tamale, Ghana. She was one of the HopE Ghana first four High School Scholarship recipients. She is currently enjoying a partial HopE Ghana College Scholarship to pursue a nursing education and we hope to make it a full tuition from the 2015 academic year. Abiba comes from a family of six children. The death of her father brought untold hardships on her single mother and as a result, HopE Ghana sponsored her during the latter part of her high school education. She dreams of becoming one of the best midwives Ghana has ever had and to contribute to efficient health care in Ghana.
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.
Priscilla and Anita
Priscilla Adu is 19 years old. She and her older sister, Anita Barnie, come from a family of four siblings. Priscilla is currently a freshman studying sociology, social work and religions at the university of Ghana, Legon—Accra. Anita is a second-year student learning a BS in Natural Resource Management at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology at Kumasi, Ghana. While their father is alive, the family continues to struggle every day to pay their tuition fees and bills. This is because for more than 10 years, their father has been jobless due to an acute form of diabetes and heart complications. Previously, he was the principal breadwinner in the family. Their mother is without any stable source of income. These brilliant and talented girls suffer the pain and humiliation of being sent home constantly because they cannot pay their fees. These very gifted sisters finished high school thanks to the benevolence of well-wishers. Unfortunately, these generous people cannot support their college education. If we cannot help them, it is likely that they will not be able to finish school.
Rhoda is 20 years and in second year student of the Nurses and Midwifery Training School at Sunyani, Ghana. Rhoda has been asked to defer her studies because her aunt (her guardian) can no more afford to pay her fees. Rhoda lost her mom and only parent when she was 2 years and since then, her aunt has been responsible for her upkeep; but she too lost her husband and her petty trading has fallen on the rocks. In spite of all that, she managed to put Rhoda into nursing school during the first year. However, things are so difficult that she can no more continue to sponsor her niece. At the moment, HopE Ghana has approached the school authorities to let Rhoda be in school with the promise to pay her tuition including her arrears. Why not help to make such a beautiful dream come true?
Naomi is 24 years old and attending Jackson College of Education. Naomi is the youngest of three children. Her parents divorced when she was still a toddler.

Due to financial constraints, Naomi’s older siblings weren’t able to go to school. They are now unemployed. When Naomi was accepted to college last year, her mother borrowed from neighbors for her to be able to attend. Because her mother could not pay back the money, the creditors are unwilling to help this time around. Naomi has two options: drop out of school or get support from benefactors. You can be one of her benefactors by helping HopE Ghana provide these funds for her.

He cannot continue to help. Without these funds, Jasintha will need to drop out of college. Jasintha wants to give back to her village and surrounding communities once she becomes a nurse. On behalf of Jasintha and her community, please help us. HopE Ghana needs your support to make her dream come true.
