Education Program

Our education programs target children and youth from the ages of three (3) to twenty five (25). These group are at the level of education starting from nursery through to the tertiary. We have seven different programs aimed at ensuring that vulnerable children and youth living in most deprived communities in Ghana are not disadvantaged due to lack of education. We are focused much on education because of the education gap among needy children and youth in Ghana. According to UNICEF 2010 and 2019 report on global education, over 400,000 children in Ghana are not enrolled in pre-primary education, thus 1 out of 4 children, aged 4 – 5 years. Also, nearly, 623,500 children of primary school age are still not enrolled in primary school. According to the 2010 Ghana national census, 20 percent of children with physical disabilities are not attending school.

 

Our Residential Program: Through this program we assume full responsibility of those youth we believe will not be able to stay in school if they are not moved to our premises. Most of such youth we pick have no parents or parents are seen as highly risky to the their education. We provide all the needs of such youth living in our home.

 

School Enrollment: This Project aims to help school dropouts, children and youth who are not in school particularly stray children and youth in deprived communities to have access to education. This project includes support with useful literacy activities that focuses on helping youth meet their personal and social needs through enhancing their skills for everyday life in a community.

 

Provision of Education and Learning Materials: Through this program, we provide needy school children and youth in deprived communities, towns and cities with education and learning materials such as text books, exercise books, laptops, school uniforms, writing tools, footwear, school bags and bicycles to cover long distances from their villages to attend school.

 

Financial Support: Most of our youth have parents who cannot afford the cost of their education. Through our education program we support students with critical financial needs from nursery up to ertiary level.  Our goal is to help needy youth to overcome their educational challenges and to keep them in school.
