Sponsor a Child
FUMC Coppell is teaming up to increase our commitment to stand in the gap and help empower children who are at risk in Ghana, West Africa. Touch A Life is the only long term rehabilitative care center in Ghana and there are 4 children that are currently without Educational sponsors. Since 2006 TAL has provided school, housing, uniforms and more for over 120 youth. We have set a goal to sponsor these children for the educational needs. $125 a month ($1,500 a year) sponsors the child and ensures that they will have a bright future! To sponsor a child contact Anne White at firstname.lastname@example.org, 214-783-8753 or Martha Hagan-Smith at email@example.com.

Is God leading you to another land? Do you want to bring joy into the lives of deserving children? Does your heart want to grow in a deeper way? Our organization is seeking you!
Lake Volta in Ghana, Africa sits between the town of Yapei and the Akosombo Dam and covers more than 3,000 square miles. The lake supports a substantial fishing industry. Much of the fishing industry is sustained by child slave labor.
According to the International Labor Organization, as many as 21,000 children are trapped in slave labor on Lake Volta, working 17-hour days after being leased by their parents for as little $20 each year. Once sold into service, children are abused and forced to remain for an average of three to four years to mend fishing nets, cook, and clean.
The Touch A Life Foundation rescues children from the slave trade and provides them with a new home at the Touch A Life Care Center in Kumasi, Ghana. The Center currently houses 80+ trafficked/exploited children, ages 4 – 17, and is the only long term rehabilitation facility in the country. It provides access to education, medical care, and other rehabilitative services.
These incredible souls seek your enlightenment and attention as they share their world with you. The primitive, but comfortable and safe journey will inspire your thoughts for years to come. Please consider joining us in person, or supporting this worthy volunteer organization with your gifts and prayers. Our team looks forward to sharing their experience with you! The deadline to sign up is September 1.
