  • The renovation of the school block has brought life back into our school. The new block has attracted more children to my class. Enrolment figures in my class was 28 now I have 54 and when I ask why? "They now love school and it is safe." This has impacted on my lessons and punctuality.

Situation

In neglected, impoverished and deprived Region, tackle lack of education. We know that enabling schooling, particularly for girls who had never had access, is what communities want and need as a large step towards defeating endemic poverty, disease and hunger. Due to dedicated and skilled volunteers, particularly those in Ghana who understand the intricacies of tribalism and corruption, our work is successful and very low cost. We help those that others do not reach.

Solution

We will use our 25-year experience to majorly rebuild the collapsing Junior High, so enabling local access to post primary, particularly important for girls who are unable to travel large distances. We have seen considerable improvement in quality of life for the 80 other communities where we have substantially improved access to education. Good schooling impacts across communities and brings better nutrition, health, improved incomes, smaller families in the short and longer term.
