why us?
the UCC
donate and wishlist
fundraising and promotion


We welcome donations from volunteers, as many resources for the classroom and sports projects cannot be easily purchased in Ghana, or are very expensive. Airlines usually allow two pieces of luggage weighing at least 20kg each, so volunteers usually find they have space to bring things for the centre.
