Meet Sadik Aponsah! Sadik was born in the Eastern Region, but relocated to Accra when he was four so that his father could find a job. Currently, he lives with his parents, sister, and two brothers. To support the family, his father works three jobs and his mother sells bagged water on the street.
Sadik is curious about the world and people around him. He is often referred to as “the man with the questions” because he is always pursuing knowledge and asking questions, both in and out of the classroom.
In school, Sadik loves math and science! In the future, Sadik wants to be a surgeon so that he can help those who are sick. We asked Sadik why he felt that education was important, and he responded, “Education is important to me because everywhere you go, you need to use your education. I need my family to become great and take care of me so when I grow up I can also take care of them. I am excited to be in GEC because GEC is making me learn hard, and I am very proud. I’m glad to have my education paid for so I can become a doctor one day.”
How you can help- For $500/year or $42/month, you will support sending Sadik to school, paying for books, tuition, extra class fees, food, school supplies, housing essentials, family support, and mentoring. Your donation will change the course of Sadik’s life pushing her to one day reach her goal of becoming a doctor and leader in her own community.
