Challenge

This project will help an aspiring Naa from a very poor background. She needs scholarship support to be able attends a school each year. There is only one free public school in Gbawe, which is overcrowded with up to 65 children per class. High unemployment and illiteracy in the area means local parents are unable to afford good quality schools which are fee paying. We will provide motivated, hardworking students like Naa-Dromo with a scholarship to good quality schools in Ghana.

Solution

This microproject will provide much needed scholarship funds to Naa, as she has been identified in the community as impoverished and her family will not able to send Naa to a good quality school without help. You can make a real difference in the life of Naa's through regular school attendance and make her be part of her community. This will enable her to create a better future for herself and her entire family.

Long-Term Impact

It is expected that children like Naa who would otherwise dropout from the school system due to circumstances beyond her control, would now through the project grow to become responsible citizens and lead a normal life and contribute to the community development instead of becoming unemployed, thieves and other social misfits.This will enable Naa to create a better future for herself and her entire family.
