Alexander lives on the plains of South Senchi, home to approximately 2,600 residents. Typical houses are constructed of cement floors, brick walls and tin roofs. The primary ethnic group and language is Ewe.

The regional diet consists of maize, fish and cassava. A common health problem in this area is malaria. Most adults in South Senchi work are subsistence farmers and earn the equivalent of $9 per month. This community needs educational materials, farming tools and a community center.

Your sponsorship allows the staff of Ebenezer Baptist Child Development Center to provide Alexander with Bible studies, spiritual counseling, health screening, health education, field trips, school fees, educational materials and handiwork skills training. The center staff will also provide parenting education and counseling for the parents or guardians of Alexander.
The Republic of Ghana is a coastal country in western Africa with a tropical climate. This small country is hot and humid as it borders the Gulf of Guinea. Once called the Gold Coast, Ghana is rich in natural resources including gold, diamonds and rubber. Even though the country is wealthy in resources, about 45 percent of the population lives in extreme poverty, making less than U.S.$1 a day.

Most of Ghana's more than 23 million people live in cities. About 98 percent of the population is African, split among six major tribes. But Ghana is flooded with refugees from its neighbors - war-torn Cote d'Ivoire, Liberia, Sierra Leone and Togo. Nearly 69 percent of the population is Christian, 16 percent is Muslim, and 8 percent follow indigenous beliefs. English is the official language, but some people speak native African languages such as Akan, Moshi-Dagomba, Ewe and Ga. Compassion works primarily in the coastal region in southern Ghana.

Though Ghana was the first British colonial country in Africa to gain its independence, it has been plagued by political violence since it was established in 1957. Between 1957 and 1979, Ghana experienced a series of bloody and bloodless coups. Finally in 1992, a new constitution establishing a multiparty government was adopted and remains in place today. John Kufuor was elected Ghana's president in 2000, and began serving his second term in 2004.
