porridge and pens is changing lives

Porridge and Pens works with some of the poorest children in Kumasi, which lies in the Ashanti Region of Ghana. We provide ongoing grants and support to schools, orphanages, families and individuals in the region.
We believe every child should have the opportunity to reach their full potential by having food to eat and a place to learn.
Porridge and Pens makes measurable differences to over 200 young lives every day through our Fruit Feeding drop, Girl Power grants and the Brightlingsea Child Care Centre.

Brightlingsea school

The Brightlingsea Academy was built to provide some of Ghana’s poorest children with an education and a daily meals.

Girl Power

Girl Power offers scholarships to vulnerable girls and young women, who are unable to complete their education because of poverty and gender equality.

Feeding Programmes

We’re working with two orphanages in Kumasi to supply fresh fruit to over 60 children to add variety and nutrition to rice-based diets and baby formula to prevent malnutrition.
