This year 26 Touch A Life students graduated from secondary school, which is the equivalent of middle school in the United States. October began the new trimester for school and all 26 passed the entrance exams to begin high school! In Ghana, it is customary to send high school-aged children to boarding school, so these students will be spending most of their time at school and coming home to the Care Center during school breaks and holidays.

The Touch A Life team is incredibly proud of these students and how they have continued to meet their goals. Our leadership team met with each student individually this week to talk about future education and career plans. Everyone left feeling inspired!

Now you have a chance to make all of these plans come to life:  20 17 of our new high school students need Education Sponsors. You or your community can support a formerly trafficked child as they pursue their education with a donation of $125 each month, or $1,500 each year.
