George also spent his early years at the Western Heritage Children's Home, due to difficult home circumstances.
Emmanuella and George, both Western Heritage Home Scholars, and also age-mates and school-mates. George is showing her how to use the magnifier we brought from the US so she could work with an XO children's computer.

Meanwhile, Emmanuella transferred to the Cape Coast School for the Deaf and Blind. The school supports her tuition, room and board, but we help out with clothing, personal supplies, traveling back and forth to Axim during vacations, etc.

His motto is "Making leaders of the least!" and so he has.
|Emmnanuella managed in August to take her final exams by reading some of the test at very close range, especially the math, and also by having some of the test read to her and she could answer orally. She can read Braille.|
Emmanuella's dream is to return to her Cape Coast School and earn her SHS high school degree.
We're going to love helping them do just that!!
