Get To Know the Every Child Is Our Child (ECOC) Students!
Get To Know the Every Child Is Our Child (ECOC) Students!
In the next few weeks, the UU-UNO will feature a child that receives access to education, school supplies and health care through the ECOC Program. Meet Jessica! Jessica is a 13-year-old girl who studies at Okwenya School located in Manya Krobo, Ghana. Jessica’s father contacted AIDS and passed away so she lives with her mother and grandmother who are both without work. To make money for her family, Jessica sold ice water and was not able to attend school. Through the ECOC Program, Jessica has access to education and health care. She is an excellent student with almost perfect attendance, missing just one day out of the semester. Jessica shares how the program has made a positive input in her life: “I do receive things that will make me happy at school to learn like school bag, sandals, books, pens, mathematical set and health care.” She likes to read and hopes one day to be a nurse. Check out photos of the students of the ECOC Program receiving school supplies in preparation for the 2011-2012 school year on UU-UNO facebook page, click here.
