How many bags of cement do you think goes into building Edukuma’s six-room school?
Cement is used for making blocks, the foundation, pouring the floor, and the cement pillars that hold the roof weight. Got your guess yet?
That’s a lot of cement. But cement is the perfect material to withstand Ghana’s hot and dry (to rainy!) climate.
#GivingTuesday, the international day of giving, is just around the corner – Tuesday, November 30.
This #GivingTuesday, will you cement your giving with a gift of $10.12 to buy one bag of cement for Edukuma?
We have about 250 bags of cement left to buy for us to set a firm foundation for Edkuma’s Primary School. Inflammation is hitting Ghana hard too and we’ve already seen the price of a bag of cement increase. Your gift will ensure we get the best price today, before the next price hike.
Please give a gift of $10.12. Or perhaps you can give a gift of two bags for $20.24 or three bags at $30.36? Your gift will set a firm foundation for the children of Edukuma.
Cement your giving with a gift of $10.12 to buy one bag of cement this #GivingTuesday!

P.S. Ghanaians have their own kind of Thanksgiving celebration called Homowo. This harvest festival recognizes its people’s long journey to settle in Ghana, including overcoming great hunger. The word homowo can mean “hooting or jeering at hunger” in the Ghanaian language of Ga.* And that’s what this holiday is about – recognizing the resiliency of its people to survive hardships with a celebration of dancing, singing and food!
