AN ALL VOLUNTEER CHARITABLE ORGANIZATION
"Make Education Possible for the Children of Elmina, Ghana"
Elmina is a fishing community on the south coast of Ghana.
In 2000, George Weir was on a business trip to Ghana and while jogging through the village, met a boy who's father ran a school. After some small donations for construction and a 2003 visit to see the progress, we founded Tomorrow's Stars.
We are a 501(c) 3 organization.
We are 100% funded by private donations, people like you.
Contributions are tax deductible as allowed by law.
Tax ID# 33-1061581
Our Philosophy and Method:
1-Make education possible by providing opportunities and removing barriers for students who are serious about learning. We help them by providing libraries and scholarships.
2-Our serious students are expected to "Pay it forward" using their time and ability to help their juniors who are serious also. We find this to be powerful and it is a theme with our projects.

As our students have matured and are realizing their dreams, our opportunities to help have grown. High School, University and other tertiary education costs have increased. Our presence as a trusted supporter brings new opportunities to serve.
University/tertiary: Tuition only=$600/yr,

Help us seize those opportunities.
