We all know that the playing field isn't always level. People arrive in life with different talents and variable resources. That's why this partnership between Ghanaians and Creating New Beginnings works. We are not handing out cash. We provide the school, monitor the teachers, have exchange programmes in place and create awareness with partnership organisations.
