Out of the 2,000 children who attend the various schools in the town, only about 125 of them graduate each year from Junior High School. Unfortunately, most of them do not qualify to attend Senior High School. Out of the limited number that are offered admissions to various SHS across the country, only a handful of parents/guardians are financially able to pay their children’s fees covering tuition, boarding, books, uniforms, and related fees. In effect, the majority of JHS graduates end their education at that level with no hope for a bright future. ABC has established a scholarship fund to provide financial aid to needy, smart, and ambitious children in the town to enable them to obtain SHS education.
Would you partner with ABC in this worthy cause? Help us give hope and opportunity to some needy children in Ghana by donating to the ABC Scholarship Fund or commit to sponsor one child for their entire SHS education.

ABC uses all financial donations to support its programs that benefit directly the people of Kwabeng, particularly the children. Designated funds are used exclusively for the intended purpose like scholarships to JHS students to attend SHS, while undesignated funds are used for capital improvement projects for the schools. The common problems facing all the public schools in the town are dilapidated school buildings, lack of modern restrooms, unsafe and poorly equipped playgrounds. Your generous donation to the General Fund will enable ABC to address some of these capital improvement projects.
Library Fund/Library Books
Kwabeng, with an estimated population of 6,000 people, has about 2,500 students enrolled annually in the various public schools (Pre-K to 12th Grade). However, except for the Senior High School that has a small library with a limited quantity of books, none of the other schools has a library. The town itself has no public library and the closest library is more than 25-miles away. Unfortunately, most of the parents are too poor to afford reading books for their children and, therefore, the only books most of the kids have are their school textbooks.
In 2012, through the generosity of ABC’s supporters, the charity raised enough funds to open a public library for the town. The building was donated by the chief and people of the town. The well-stocked ABC Library, which has a Computer Center, was officially opened on June 8 by the District’s Member of the National Parliament, amid great celebration by the students, teachers and the people of the town.
Support this worthy cause by donating funds and or books (excluding text books) to maintain the library and pay the staff.
