Let's make a difference!

Family Learning Program
Family Learning Program
  • We believe that everyone has the right to an education
  • We believe in giving everyone in the community access to education
  • We believe that people can make their lives better through education

With your help, we can make this possible for 100 adults in Ghana....

There are many people in the area that could not complete or attend school due to poverty or working to help their family, and have nowhere to go for free education. They are marginalised in our society because they find it difficult to identify the English alphabet and even the local dialect. They suffer from a lack of basic health because they do not understand health and financial information. This presents a big challenge in living their lives day-to-day.

PAAJAF has successfully run free family learning and adult literacy programs in Gbawe and Bronso-Afaso. In 2010, our family learning program increased literacy up to 50% in Gbawe; parents can read their children’s school reports and help them with school work. They can access health information and learn basic sanitation.

Since January 2013, we have sought out grants to fund classes for 6 months with facilitators. This month of March, we have 3 volunteers through UN Volunteering to assist us with developing our grant proposals so that we may generate funding to run the literacy classes. Our aim is to provide free classes to 100 poor and illiterate people to give them the education that they rightly deserve.

Together we can give opportunities for everyone and make their lives better. Want to volunteer? We need grant writers and proof-readers contact
