Education as a way out of poverty



How you can help



 There are a number of ways you can help the Bansang Educational Appeal financially. You can opt to make:


1. One-off donations towards sponsoring students or other work of the charity


      There are often children struggling with one part of their education costs, but they can manage others. Some of last years grade 12 haven't received their results because they cannot find funding to pay their school fees arrears. One-off donations can be used to help these students or be put toward improving facilities of the schools.


2. One-off donations towards materials for the pupils at lower basic level


      At Lower Basic and upper Basic Level basic education is free, but children need uniform and shoes. Schools provide writing materials and books. These are often inadequate for the number of children attending. classes are crowded and few classrooms have sufficient tables and benches for their students.


3. On-going monthly commitments sponsoring specific students.


      Costs vary from year to year depending on the year students are in. The exchange rate is also variable. The total costs of 3 years  Senior Secondary School education have been calculated so sponsors can pay an average monthly cost that will cover 3 years education assuming the exchange rate is 50 Dalasi to the Pound. If this turns out not to be the case BEA will try and fund the difference through fundraising. The following chart shows cost options for monthly sponsorship. Previously girls have been exempt from school fees but this has now ended.  to balance this upper basci level education is now free. This has lead to an increase in sponsorship costs as senior level schooling is more expensive pre year than upper basic level was. Supplementary costs of uniform and sundries, extra study classes and books are included in our costs. Lunch is an additional extra.
