African Book Challenge (ABC) is a New Jersey based charity dedicated to working with school administrators, teachers, children, and parents to improve access and quality of education for the kids in Kwabeng, a rural town in Ghana. ABC is helping the children in the village reach their full potential through education that ultimately gives them hope for future prosperity for themselves and their community. We are achieving our goals through impact programs such as:

Capital Improvements

ABC uses donations to the Capital Improvement Fund to renovate dilapidated school buildings, provide modern restrooms to replace unhygenic outhouses; add new classrooms to reduce huge class sizes and provide safe playgrounds for the Pre-K and kindergarten kids.

Scholarships to Needy Students

ABC provides financial assistance or full sponsorship to ambitious middle school graduates from poor families to enable them to attend high school. The majority of Ghanaian High Schools are boarding schools but many poor families cannot afford the fees to enable their kids to attend such schools.

Library, School Supplies and Sports Equipment

ABC collects both used and new library and children's books, computers, school supplies, soccer balls, uniforms, etc. and ships them to be distributed among the schools. ABC is currently raising funds to open a public library for the town; it will be the first and only library in the town or within a 25 mile radius.

We can only operate due to the continued and generous support of many individuals who share our vision that -
To Learn is To Live

"Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world"
