Family Learning in Gbawe Community in Ghana

PAAJAF still in hardship to run its project family learning programme that based on adult education.

The Family Learning is about creating opportunities for families to be creative, have fun and learn together. It can connect generations, strengthen communities and put a match to the potential of children and families. It is an empowering process: parents gain an insight of how their children learn and how they can help their own children at home in everyday activities.

 

Parents know their children best and it is important to build on that knowledge.   Parents and children spend quality time together and it enables parents to access other adult learning opportunities.  Family including Literacy and Numeracy, helping adult with Reading and Writing:

  • Family Learning enables parents and children to have fun together
  • Confidence and raised self esteem amongst parents and children
  • Improved educational outcomes for children
  • An effective way of engaging parents in their children’s learning and in the life of the setting
  • A first step back into learning for parents
  • Improved relationships between parents and children.

 

PAAJAF needs help to pay stipend for teachers, buy computers to provide them basic skills in IT and lack of reference book.  Your support is most welcome; you can make a difference from any simple action that you would demonstrate.

 

Thank you.

Project Update

It is sometimes easy to put off things until tomorrow, but when tomorrow may bring illness or worse the meaning has a sense of urgency.  The people who are helped by donations to the PAAJAF face a tomorrow everyday where there just isn’t enough to go around.  Your support of this charity will ensure a child the right to live with hope for the next day.

Unfortunately, the school fees arrears of our current sponsored child still left unpaid and we here at PAAJAF is calling for help on their behalf.

Our client Group educational Circumstances

Children’s Education: Public schools in the area are normally very over-crowded. Due to the demography of the city (56% under 24 years) and the growing population (migration and natural increase), 24,500 new school places must be created in the basic school system (primary and junior high) each year for 10 years. Classes are generally twice the size of those considered acceptable in the Developed World. The teachers are therefore unable to give individual attention to any pupils in the normal school hours; this affects attainment levels. Whilst most Ghanaians have access to primary and some secondary education, there is a high drop out rate in primary school, especially for girls. The Multiple Indicator Cluster Survey (MICS 2006) stated that only 22.3% of females and 25.9% of males completed primary school in 2007.

 

Thank you to understand the impact.
