Project

Ankobra River School is an NGO started from Ankobra Beach Resort in early 2014 to educate local children in science, mathematics, music, arts, sports, dance, reading and writing in English, French and Fante.

Initiatives Supported

All the needs are current as of May 30, 2016

Listed on this page are the specific needs requested by the community project(s) so you can choose exactly what to pack for a purpose and express your gratitude to the local community with the supplies you take them.

Candy and balloons are not on the needs list as they are harmful for the children and the environment for the following reasons:
• Few of the children benefiting from these projects have access to toothpaste, toothbrushes, or a dentist. The candy promotes cavities.
• The balloons once they become deflated are a choking hazard for local wildlife.

Instead of taking candy or balloons, use that space for additional requested supplies, as they are priceless.
