Supported by the First United Church and members of the Salon Arm Community, two schools have been built in Nyobok-Nenzesi, a small village in Northern Ghana, which are now funded and run by the government.  Since the program and local support focuses mainly on children who are at a disadvantage in receiving  an education,  most of the support goes to girls, and that has changed the village's attitude toward educating girls.  
Groups and individuals can help to cover tuition, uniforms, books & medical care  by donating to the project which then chooses the students to help.
