Update on ICT Training project

I am writing to provide you with an update to PAAJAF's projects and to let you know a few changes we are making in the short term to help our projects and beneficiaries.
We were visited by Helen at GlobalGiving UK, as a project evaluator to help us to make improvements to our projects and give us advice on how we can support the people in the Gbawe community better with our limited resources and funds. Helen gave us some great feedback, you can read about it here
Together, we have decided that in the short term, we will be retiring 3 of the projects from GlobalGiving and focusing all of our efforts on Help Underprivileged Children In Ghana and sponsoring the fantastic children featured on our website.
We are determined and committed to providing scholarship support to the children identified in our community and will be participating the the September Fundraiser at GlobalGiving.
You have helped us on our incredible journey, and we hope to continue with your support in the future. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at I am more than happy to answer any queries you have.

Creating new partnerships

Micro-loans would help women to start trades
Micro-loans would help women to start trades

We sincerely thank you for your donations to this project during the June Bonus Day! 

In June, we have been seeking out new partnerships to revitalise our project to assist impoverished women in Ghana to access working capital, receive training and start new businesses.

Myself and our board Secretary (Mr. Amponsah) met with the Operations Manager and Projects Manager from the Hopeline Institute at PAAJAF's office at the The Church of the Pentecost. At the meeting Hopeline requested PAAJAF to submit a board's resolution to work with them, which we have done. It is our aim to work together and receive support from Hopeline. We will keep you informed of progress.

The Hopeline Institute assists the marginalized populations of Accra, Ghana, especially women, by offering training in microfinance management and preventative health. Please see more about them at their website

As a project, we have also created a suite of new policies to implement including a background check form so that participants can provide references and to perform basic name and address checks, an affadavit and group lending agreement which clearly shows how the micro-loans and repayments are planned. This will assist in the monitoring and evaluation of micro-loans.

Keep our After School Program dreams alive!

Class 2B need help to fund teachers
Class 2B need help to fund teachers

State schools in Gbawe are overcrowded, at Gbawe Methodist Junior High School there are up to 65 pupils per class and teachers struggle to attend to individual students’ needs. We have one aim to help young people to meet their educational goals - every child deserves an education and bright future.

We link to our youtube video and photos of our recent generous stationery donation received from the UK - the children send heartfelt appreciation! 

In Ghana, computers and the Internet is part of children’s natural environment. There are wide gaps in the use of ICT between rural and urban schools in Ghana. There is a severe lack of adequate computers and other ICT tools especially in rural schools. At Gbawe Methodist School there are no computers or any available IT literate teachers to provide computer literacy classes to students.

Our project is currently stalled because of lack of funds to support the salaries of qualified teachers and purchase of IT equipment and educational materials to run a 6 month program for up to 70 students from the local Junior High School.

However, children have written articles to YOU about Child Education, Chastity and Human Rights. Together we created Nkabom! Children of Ghana online magazine which features articles from 11 students, they are very proud of putting their writing together to share with you! It would mean a lot to them to share our magazine with your friends and family! 

An injection of funds would allow the below to proceed;

The vision for the After School Program is to meet the educational needs of young people in the Gbawe community by:

Focusing on children from homes experiencing difficult financial situations (e.g. single parent with no income), and those from the local school who have a low level of literacy;

Tutoring by qualified teachers in computing, English and math using an online portal (Nkabom) to discuss  homework assignments (in the aforementioned subject areas) and media and creativity projects;

Providing healthy snacks to supplement children’s diets and improve their health. 

Finally, supplying educational materials such as access to computers, pens, pencils and books to students for use during and after the program.

This will be monitored monthly and evaluation reports produced on project expenditure and assessment of children's progress. Thank you for your kind support, please pass our message on.
