Sarah Brown sees how Sport Relief money is helping girls in Ghana

A World at School co-founder Sarah Brown travelled to remote northern Ghana to see how Sport Relief money is helping girls go to school.

On the four-day trip, she visited education projects across the region. Sarah spoke to many girls who, with the help of NGOs working with the Ghanaian government and local communities, are in school and learning.

Many had been working as child labourers to feed their families but now have a chance to plan for a more hopeful future.

The stories will put into a short film by Sport Relief, which you can watch on the video player above.

As president of the charity Theirworld, Sarah is passionate about making sure all children are in school and learning.

She said: “Ghana was one of the most remote places I have ever visited and it was incredible to see how such a small amount of funding can turn a girl’s life around and let her fulfil her potential.”

Sport Relief is a UK fundraising event which this year runs from March 21 to 23. The British public use the event to get active, raise cash and change the lives of some of the poorest people in the UK and around the world.
