Phase One Report - Help Support a School in Ghana

Dear PAAJAF Friends,

We believe that any barrier can be overcome and should not prevent a person from realizing future aspirations. Our strategy is, we utilise the skills and experiences of our volunteers, staff and the support from our sponsors to provide Adolescents and Adults jobs for Advancement in Future through education and skills training. 

PAAJAF appreciates your support a lot since 2008 to today of this report, YOU have been our backbone and generous DONOR. Your support has moved PAAJAF to our current stage from 5 adults who were receiving adult literacy education in our community. It extended 60 students in Gbawe community who received after school program, Greater Accra Region and 60 students also at Bensa in Bron Ahalfo Region.  Now what your donation is still doing? 

Surprisingly, it didn’t stop there as the only impact. It is really making impact in the lives of 145 children as of today by giving quality education, improve the health and social conditions of our entire student in our school, transform people’s attitude, increase their self-esteem, and promote the sense of inclusiveness in the society. Education is the source of the successful future for us and our next generation. 

Currently we are supporting 145 student now in our school by giving them a scholarship education, so what now? We would like to present to you the phase two of the project to help us to maintain these vulnerable children to receive good and quality education. So how would you help? We will need your help as you have been in aid to the completion of the phase one. Please we salute you all! 

The phase two we have it in two sections: operational support to maintain the current 145 students, and add more to it also. Paying of salary of the teachers in the school, support the underprivileged children in the community under scholarship fund – who could not attend the PAAJAF school – who are in upper class. 

The other section of the phase two, would you please visit this link ? This project is helping PAAJAF to secure a land to start building of permanent school for the children that we support 320 students annually in the PAAJAF community. Currently our school is in a rented premises and it is too expenses that we couldn’t afford it and the Landlord has always been increasing and increasing it. Dalila Sumani, the recent GlobalGiving field traveller, can give attest to this report. Please visit this link to see what Dalila shares with you: 

Do we need volunteers? Yes, PAAJAF’s achievement is based on volunteers’ effort and generous givers. We also need partnerships. We would like to plead to you to share this in your network and community for us. 

Thank you.

STORIES

A Quick Recap of Week 7

The children in the Sunflower class (aged 2 – 3 years) and the Morning Glory class (aged 3 – 4 years) continued to practice writing lower case alphabets from ‘a’ to ‘w’, and forming two- and three-letter sounds with vowels ‘a’ and ‘e’ such as ‘as’, ‘an’, ‘am’, ‘me, and ‘he’.

We also held an activity in movement exploration through which the children learnt how to dress according to their tribes’ customs. To read the full story, please visit this link.

 

Week 8 in Review

Last week, the children in the Sunflower class (aged 2 – 3 years) were able to orally count numbers from 0 – 50, identify numbers from 0 – 20, and write numbers from 0 – 12.

The Morning Glory class (aged 3 – 4 years) practiced writing lower case alphabets from ‘w’ to ‘z’ last week. Since they practiced writing from ‘a’ to ‘w’ the week before, they have completed writing lower case alphabets from ‘a’ to ‘z’ during the last two weeks (18th February to 1st March, 2019). Now, they have started to combine both upper and lower case letters, like ‘Aa’, ‘Bb’, ‘Cc’, etc.

Our teachers, Miss Sandra Amu and Miss Susana Amoakowa, also taught their respective nursery classes (Sunflower and Morning Glory) basic health routines (like brushing teeth and washing hands), colouring fruits and vegetables, and the many uses of plants.

 

The children from the kindergarten classes, Pansy and Carnation (aged 4 – 6 years), read 3- to 6-letter word sentences and practiced the phonic sounds ‘wh’ and ‘er’ during their language activities. During their activities in mathematics, environment, creative art, and religious and moral studies, the children learnt about shapes, domestic animals, keeping our environment clean, and clay modelling.

 

HIGHLIGHT OF THE WEEK – A Visit from Health Personnel

Two health professionals from a Ghana Health Service in Ga South District visited our school to give the PEI staff and students an informative talk on healthcare. It was a useful course on taking care of our bodies as well as our environment.
