As children around the world return to school, seats will be filled to capacity and overflowing at Royal Seed School. Imagine the school yard, brimming with children gathered in lines for morning assembly. Teachers lead prayers and songs. The school band of drums and horns plays the national anthem and sends the children off to their classrooms.
It’s 8am and several hundred children fresh with sleep and breakfast, sit three to a bench with simple notebooks and pencils in hand. The teacher begins by writing on the chalkboard the day’s lesson. The children copy the words and pictures into their notebooks and memorize the information. Classroom materials are scarce in this school.
Royal Seed School began as a piece of tarp stretched overhead and attached to four poles pushed into the ground. Today, the school is a beautiful concrete complex of a dozen classrooms. Each classroom has simple benches for the children and a desk and chalkboard for the teacher. It resembles an old fashioned country school room with even fewer materials. Children from Royal Seed Home and the surrounding (impoverished) neighborhoods faithfully attend class every day. Naomi, the school’s founder, never turns a child away. Nor does she collect school fees. She relies completely on God to provide for the school.
This year, Worship In Action made an investment in Royal Seed School by purchasing teacher text books and ceiling fans for the classrooms. But, there is so much more we can do.
We have created an educational fund for Royal Seed School. Our goal is to raise $3,500 USD to purchase complete sets of textbooks for every classroom. In Ghana, the average price for one student textbook is 15 Cedis or $4 USD.
A contribution of $20 will purchase five textbooks. $40 will purchase 10 textbooks. $100 will purchase 25 textbooks. Please consider joining us this month. Our combined contributions have the potential to significantly improve the educational experience year after year for thousands of children.
