Breaking Ground in Ghana

Shadrach Sowah, a class 4 Student, comes to school from Adonteiman, a neighboring village. He normally leaves home at 7AM on foot. When classes end at 2 PM, Shadrach walks back to his home with friends from the same village. For Shadrach, school is a place to study and socialize with classmates. He can’t wait to join the line at the Food for People center when it opens. He considers his school very lucky to be chosen for the program.
