We are almost getting to the end of the year and our annual report for the year will be out in October 2022. Before the release of our annual report we will like to share some  update to you.  In Northern Ghana we are currently in the raining season . A season where there is high mosquitoes breed and hence high malaria cases. Which results in low school attendance in the rural communities. In order to prevent our beneficiaries and communities from mosquito bites and Malaria ,our team decided to donate 100 insecticides treated mosquito nets to two(2)  of our partner schools to protect the kids from mosquito bites and we are happy to report that we have had low cases of malaria from those schools since we distributed the nets and the kids are sleeping under it and we are hoping to donate more nets in the coming year to cover all the kids of our partner schools. Our Literacy Support program and little libraries are running effectively and the number of kids borrowing books from the libraries is encouraging. More updates on our Libraries and Literacy support will be on our annual report next month.

Schools in Ghana officially resumed on the 10th of May after a short break and we have officially resumed our after school literacy support sessions for the second term on the 17th of May 2022 in all our partner schools. As schools were on a short break our little libraries were still opened to children in the communities we have our libraries installed to come for books to read while they observe their short break. In all a total of 240 children came to borrow books to read at home during the three week vacation period from our little libraries. We will once again like to thank all our donors for the continued support. We couldn't have done it without your support. You can still donate to support us to buy more books for our libraries by donating. We are grateful.

We kicked start our program for the year by training sixteen  teachers of our partner schools on literacy skills needed to run our extra literacy tuition lessons in their schools. Our extra Literacy tuition for the year officially started on the 31st of January 2022 in our beneficiary schools. We have also started distributing the 2000 books we have printed to be distributed to children of our partner schools to help with their academic work. We have so far distributed to Kanvilli Nuriya Primary school as at the first week of February and will move to the other schools in the second week of February. We are so grateful to all our partners,donors and supporters for the continued support. We couldn't have done it without your help. THANK YOU

This report is going to highlight our work towards the realization of Sustainable Development Goals, precisely goal 4, which is to
“ENSURE INCLUSIVE AND EQUITABLE QUALITY EDUCATION AND PROMOTE LIFE LONG LEARNING OPPORTUNITIES FOR ALL.

The mission of Rural Literacy Solutions is to aid rural development in Ghana through education by helping rural students to develop literacy skills in reading, writing and numeracy. Our program provides after school literacy activities assistance and mentoring that also promotes life skills and character development.

With your support we currently support 5 primary schools with our after school literacysupportprogram(namely Kanvilli Nuriya Primary School Bongnaa Yili Primary school ,Vogu R/C Primary School,Kumbungu Watania Primary school and Kumbungu DA Primary) in 5 communities.With our afterschool Literacy program for Rural Primary schools, the goal is to increase literacy for rural students so they have the opportunity to move on to junior high school. Without proper Literacy skills, few students make it past the 4th grade level. Our committed literacy club teachers are working to help rural students increase their reading, writing, speaking and comprehension abilities, as well as build their confidence and commitment towards school. Currently over 300 children are been impacted with our after school program in the 5 schools.

Acting on one of our strategic priorities, The Rural Literacy Solutions trained 10 teachers of our partner schools to facilitate our literacy clubs in their respective schools. Secondly, we also involve the Ghana Education service Kumbungu Directorate. They supports us in monitoring our literacy clubs. 

In January 2021 we launched our Little library project.The Little library idea came about after the pandemic distrupted schools here in Ghana . Kids were at home for 10 months without schooling and without books to continue reading at home so we came out with the Little library project to provide books to kids to lend and read at home. With your support we have set up 5 Libraries in 5 communities.We have so far provided 1200 books to the 5 Little Libraries in total. With over 600 children coming to lend books from the 5 Libraries since February 2021. 2 additional libraries are in the final stages of being added to make 7 Libraries
