  • Catch up with Children of the Light (CotL) at their new location!     07 July 2017
    Main image

    We held our first classes at the CotL Learning Centre on 20 May 2017. It has been a delight to see and hear the children's excitement as they come to the centre for classes. The journey has been long and we still have a way to go, but what is amazing is that we are finally in our own building. To God be the glory!

    Special thanks to ALL who made this move possible. God bless you!

  • Quality Education for Everyone - Walkathon     17 May 2017
    Main image

    This is the sad truth! - The Ghana 2013 National Education Assessment (NEA) has indicated that for P6, only 9.9% of the pupils reached the NEA definition of proficiency (i.e., achieved greater than or equal to 55% correct) in both maths and English. ~ Ghana 2013 National Education Assessment - Technical Report May 2014 - p. 42 ~

    Your support toward this walk will be greatly appreciated.

    ~ Together we can make a difference ~

  • Sponsor a child     14 February 2017
    Main image

    Children of the Light is a free educational program that aims to bridge the gap with the school system. We provide comprehensive and creative learning opportunities to children in the community. What does this mean, we have a monthly calendar of events where we focus on reading, math, social studies, environmental issues and many other topics for learning. What we have realized, a vast number of these children are not able to read at grade level. We are talking about children as old as 15 that can barely read even though they attend school; these children lack confidence which then escalates the problem. We are asking for sponsorship for these children, you can give NZ$35.00 monthly for 4 months or a one-time payment of NZ$140. With this they receive one-on-one tutorial twice a week for 4 months, a number of learning materials and a healthy snack at each session.

    Please consider helping us empower and change a child’s life for good. Once you decide, we will provide more information about your sponsored child. Thanks!

  • First Official Program at the CotL Learning Centre     23 July 2016
    Main image

    On July 9th, 2016, we celebrated our grand finale for our annual reading month program at the new site. It was amazing; a day the kids will never forget. Thank you to all who have supported us to get this far.

    To have this event at the site we actually transported all items down on the back of a truck and then when it was over transported all back again to our present congested venue. We continue to seek funds to complete the centre and officially move in. Together we can make a difference!
