Building St. Jean de Brebeuf School in Navrongo, Ghana

Brebeuf College School in Toronto, with the support of its Alumni Association, is committed to helping the Presentation Brothers to raise $75,000 to build a new elementary school in Navrongo, Ghana in West Africa. It will be named after our patron, St. Jean de Brebeuf.

Quality education is key to lifting students out of poverty and giving hope for their futures, and the Brothers have been providing this to the people of northern Ghana since 1968.

We are so grateful to our students, staff, parents, and alumni whose generosity will make this possible. We acknowledge and thank all past donors as part of regular contributions to the Brother Lawrence Maher Fund for Africa.
