Summary

Achievers Ghana Education is seeking support for its COVID-19 Home Literacy Project with the objective of helping to serve the community with education in local languages to ensure residents of Nima and Mamobi are well informed on COVID-19 prevention measures. We will also be offering literacy help to youth. With the disruption of all activities including the closure of schools, it is imperative our students and pupils are engaged while at home with innovative ways of bridging their knowledge.

Challenge

Ghana confirmed its first case of corona-virus on March 12 and has since reported a total of 1,550 infections and 11 deaths. In a bid to keep the rapidly spreading virus at bay, the government has announced a series of sweeping measures including banning mass gatherings and shutting down all borders and schools. But the corona-virus pandemic has revealed the stark regional, social and economic inequalities in Ghana's educational system.

Solution

Recognizing that knowledge gap and need to help address the situation, Achievers Ghana on Thursday April, 23rd launched the Home Literacy project in Nima and Mamobi Slum Communities of Greater Accra region, the project mainly aimed at providing young learners within the target area with grade appropriate learning materials in order to reduce the impact of the pandemic on their education. Contents of the learning materials is centered on the precautionary measures of the novel virus.

Long-Term Impact

According to UNESCO (2020), the closure of schools due to COVID-19 pandemic will widen learning inequalities and hurt vulnerable children and youth disproportionately. The goal of the Home Literacy Project is to mitigate the immediate impact of school closures, particularly for more vulnerable and disadvantage communities and to facilitate the continuity of education for all.
