Cambridge Rindge and Latin
Cambridge Rindge and Latin High School students in the Honors African American Literature course are raising funds for the Abutia Norvisi Community School in Ghana. Please consider donating to their campaign!
"Abutia Norvisi Community School was established in 1964 by the Government of Ghana in partnership with the community. The school has not received any major development from the government since its establishment, so the community members always come together to support the school through communal labor. Being the only school in the area, the school population currently stands at 353, from kindergarten to grade 6.
The school’s borehole well has been broken for years, so the students would have to fetch water from the nearby community water source. Recently, the community borehole well broke and now the students have to walk 3 km, each way, to another community to fetch water for drinking and sanitation. Now that the dry season is setting in, the situation will become worse as the pupils will have to wait in line for long periods to get their turn at the well. Time wasted fetching water multiple times per day has a negative impact on teaching and learning. "
