Location

Situation

Education has been out of reach for thousands of children in remote areas of Northern Ghana. We have transformed this for nine communities and have been asked for help by twenty more. Where we have opened schools all the children attend regularly and teaching is of a good quality. The historical picture of teachers simply running away because of difficult living conditions is reversed and all of our schools have good female teachers as role models for the girls, as well as men. We have quadrupled enrollment and attendance, with all girls attending school instead of being kept at home to tend crops, siblings or go to market. We work closely with local government to ensure that real needs are met as effectively and economically as possible. Ghana Education Service recruit the teachers. All construction and carpentry etc is carried out by locals so benefiting the local economy.
