Description

To celebrate and honor the incredible career of our dear friend and colleague, Andre Hughes, we are coming together to build two schools and teachers' quarters in Asabiem, Ghana. This project is currently in the planning phase.

Since Andre founded Powered by Action in December 2010, the organization has championed several initiatives here in the United States and overseas.

Powered by Action has already built one school in Asabiem, which is currently educating 100 children. The two new schools will educate 200 additional children in grades 4-8. Additionally, the teachers' quarters will provide safe accommodation for school faculty.

The total cost of this initiative is $372,000. Our goal is to finish the fundraising effort by June 1, 2012.

La Selle Booker, a Senior Executive and Managing Director at Accenture, has committed to match the first $10,000 given. Thank you La Selle! Inspired by La Selle's generosity, another Accenture partner has also committed to match the same!

As contributors, our names will be displayed on a plaque in each school's entryway, denoting us as the schools' founders.

Our Solution

Please consider giving the gift of education by submitting a donation. The greatest gift we can give is the gift to serve.
