At the moment, without a solid connection at the school, it is incredibly hard to perform everyday tasks that you and I take for granted. Securing internet will mean better internal and external communications, essential for ensuring the  school runs as smoothly as possible, but most importantly will allow students access to a world of information and not limit them to researching solely in the school’s library.[lt]br /[gt]We also hope to set up forums so that Awutu-Winton students may communicate with students from our partner schools in the UK, Rodborough and Canford; building relationships between the two cultures we believe will be hugely beneficial for all involved.[lt]br /[gt]Please help us raise this money for a new vehicle by sponsoring The Ghana Gallopers through Virgin Money Giving. Donations will be quickly processed and passed to EDP directly.[lt]br /[gt]Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this.[lt]br /[gt]The Ghana Gallopers and all of us at EDP really appreciate your support.[lt]br /[gt][b]Thank you for visiting the Ghana Gallopers' fundraising page! [/b][lt]/h1[gt] [p][b][span=text-decoration: underline;]EDP Trust[/span][/b][/p] [p][b]“Education is the only route out of poverty and despair, and is the gift that no child in our world should be denied.”[/b][b][lt]br /[gt] [lt]br /[gt] [/b]We are raising money for [b]EDP (Educational Development Projects) Trust[/b], a UK-based charity that [b]runs a FEE-FREE scondary school in an impoverished area of Southern Ghana[/b], West Africa.[b][lt]br /[gt] [lt]br /[gt] [/b]Awutu-Winton Senior High School [b]provides high quality secondary education to those [/b]who would otherwise[b] not be able to afford it.[/b] [b][lt]br /[gt] [lt]br /[gt] [/b]To [b]find out more[/b] about EDP [b][url=http://www.edp-trust.org/]please visit our website here[/url][/b] and [b]watch the video [/b]of 'A Day in the Life at Awutu-Winton Senior High School' below:[/p][p][lt]object width="425" height="350" data="http://www.youtube.com/v/yw_NL6HfKLA" type="application/x-shockwave-flash"[gt][lt]param name="data" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/yw_NL6HfKLA" /[gt][lt]param name="quality" value="high" /[gt][lt]param name="wmode" value="transparent" /[gt][lt]param name="src" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/yw_NL6HfKLA" /[gt][lt]/object[gt][/p] [p][span=text-decoration: underline;][b]Installing internet at Awutu-Winton Senior High School[/b][/span][i][/i][/p] [p]Our aim is to raise as much as possible in order to [b]install internet at Awutu-Winton[/b] and, if possible, cover the first year’s running costs.
