On February 11, 2021, Aide du Ciel launched its first donation campaign: 1 notebook, 1 pen for Elmina's children.
The objective being to provide equipment to encourage students to Future Stars school to continue their education. We take you behind the scenes of our very first project.
300 students to equip, that's the goal we set for ourselves. We therefore started a fundraising campaign, with a first video, presenting the project and the Aide du Ciel volunteers.
One month is the length of time we set for the total amount. The welcome was warm. More than 3000 views were counted on Linkedin, Instagram and Facebook.
After 2 weeks, more than two thirds of the sum is obtained. We receive messages of support which do us a lot of good and encourage us on the home stretch.
Tick tock, tick tock more than a few hours and the result falls: € 1,325 !!!! Our children from the Future Stars school will finally be able to be equipped.
Our promise to give them a notebook and a pen will be honored. Our president, accompanied by our volunteer in Ghana are responsible for ordering supplies.
The notebooks will be personalized with the Aide du Ciel logo. A ceremony is organized for the hand delivery to our schoolchildren. The local press and the village chiefs came to attend.
Our students are staring at our president, their eyes full of stars and joy. They line up one after the other, in single file, eager to receive their equipment.
Thank you for accompanying us in Chapter 1 of this great adventure.
We hope to have you at our sides for the next chapters we write.
