    I am an individual who have passion and interest to help needy people. but my problem is that i don’t have the funds to help or support them. please I am pleading with you if you could kindly help me with funding to reach my dream of helping the needy. I am a Ghana, Northern region a town called Tamale and I want to help stop child labor by enrolling more of them in to schools and some to learn handicraft of their choice. Many of them are selling items in the market center and some carrying people loads for money.Their ages are between the age 10 to 20 years. Anytime I see them like that my heart breaks. sometimes i do give some of them money to go home and rest. It is so pathetic. I know i can’t do this alone else a help from organization like yours.
    i would be grateful to hear from you.
    Best regards.
    Esther.
