June 2021 Silent Auction
We are so excited for our next fundraiser which will be a silent auction from June 1st to June 8th. We have a wide range of items from Ghana including Wood Art, Jewelry, Batik and more. Many of these items are made by individuals who are Deaf. We have a goal this year to raise $100,000 to help with several projects at the schools and to support our Deaf students.
Where Your Donation Goes:
Scholarships supporting 100-150 students – $30,000
Curriculum for the teacher – $10,000
Travel $2500 per person x 10 – $25,000
Maintenance – Playground repair and new computers – $35,000
If you choose to donate to SOHI, your donation goes directly to the students we serve. Here are the things we fund:
Scholarship funds to pay for supplies and financial support for students whose families can’t afford to send them to school
Training curriculums and materials for the teachers
Partial sponsorship for highly-qualified Deaf teachers, mentors, and interpreters to travel to Ghana in order to provide the best possible training for local teachers. These Deaf teachers and interpreters are volunteers; your donation helps cover a portion of travel and living expenses during their two-month volunteer trips at the schools in Ghana.
Work with Administrators and local volunteers on maintenance of projects previously supported by Sign of Hope International.
