From one school to another: $1000 donation helps to improve a Ghanian community’s education
In 2015, sixth graders from the Montclair Kimberley Academy (MKA) in the US heard about the problem of child labour in cocoa farming. Moved by the realisation that children their own age were involved in the production of the chocolate they so enjoyed, the kids decided to mobilise.
With the help of the ICI they were able to improve the lives of children living in the Ghanaian cocoa community of Nsata Subriso. After fundraising efforts the MKA sixth graders donated $1,000 to ICI. The donation provided a new classroom for the local primary school, complete with 30 dual wooden desks.
