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 Child Care Centre was set up to ensure that some of Ghana’s poorest children get an education and a daily meal.

Girl Power

Girl Power offers life changing opportunities for young women through the form of educational grants and scholarships.

Fruit Drop

We’re working with an orphanage in Kumasi to supply fresh fruit to over 60 children to add variety and nutrition to rice-based diets.

Last week Headteacher Ben started work to transform the Brightlingsea Schools squat toilet into a disabled friendly one for Akwasi.

We need £100 to finish!!!

Step by step, pound by pound, we will help the school make the necessary changes to accommodate the needs of all children 👣 the toilet still needs hand railings, tiles and slip proof flooring.

To help us finish the toilet transformation please donate towards our target!
