Consultation began with local churches and schools in starting Family and Adult Education services. Feedback was very, very encouraging since there is high illiteracy in the community. Based on requests from churches and schools PAAJAF started the Family and Adult education program in one of the public schools at Gbawe in 2007. Within 3 years PAAJAF has supported 500 individuals through adult literacy education and an after school program for children.
We here at PAAJAF said today: “School Programs for literacy and education need more support. They benefit by stopping the cycle of poverty. Young people need access opportunities through programs like ours and can find advancement.”
Hanna, aged 28, helped through PAAJAF’s Education for People in Ghana –Family Learning project says “I have been educated by the foundation to read the English language and my own dialect, Twi. I am very grateful to the PAAJAF Foundation for making me literate. I can now read and write, which helps me with my bank transactions and I can now understand my child’s report card.”
Unfortunately, this program that was adding values into the lives of adults who could not get chance to attend school but now wanted to learn is now on hold due to lack of funding to pay the program facilitators stipend. PAAJAF intends to resume the project on Jan 2013 and calling for your support to recruit 3 facilitators.
$60 for each facilitator per a month for 12 month and from now till the Christmas PAAJAF is seeking for your support!
