What We Do
What we do
Porridge and Pens works with some of the most disadvantaged children and young adults in Ghana. We do this by providing access to free education, safe shelter and school meals so young people can create their own bright and sustainable futures, free from poverty.
Porridge and Pens believe every child in Ghana should have an equal chance to achieve their full potential. Our work is delivered through our two long standing projects; Girl Power and The Brightlingsea Academy, which make measurable differences to 650 lives each day.
