Summary

Lack of access to education is a prevalent problem for families living below the poverty line in Ghana. The ECCACHILD programme is working with vulnerable families in rural communities to ensure the basic needs of children are met: 1. Education: providing fees for school transportation, exams, books and the right level of care for those with extra needs. 2. Health: Enrolling children onto the NHIS so they have access to free health care and providing regular health screening.

Challenge

We are currently in need of a fresh boost of support for this programme and are in debt to the schools who've been a fantastic partner in the goal of assisting the vulnerable.

Solution

We are looking to raise $2,500 to cover the maintenance costs (transportation, examination fees, books, uniforms and meals) of thirteen children currently enrolled in schools through ECCACHILD, and for their continued education into the next academic year.

Long-Term Impact

The availability of fund for the ECCACHILD project will enable AFAWI continue to support the guardians of the 13 children currently enrolled in schools and relieve the financial burden on the guardians, as well as enable these children have education. It will also enable AFAWI enroll more children in schools in the Upper East Region of Ghana.
