Challenge

In Bolni primary school, almost 80% of the pupils are unable to read or write good sentences in English. Most parents are not able to provide essential learning materials for pupils due to high levels of poverty. Yet, teachers have now stopped coming to the community due to threats of conflict in the District capital. Grameen Ghana will provide allowance for 6 volunteer teachers and learning materials for 200 pupils to save the children from missing out in school.

Solution

This project will support 200 pupils with educational materials such as exercise books, pens, pencils, crayons, story books, practical learning games as well as sandals and school bags. The community has identified volunteer teachers to help and the project will support with allowance for 6 of the volunteers for 1 year. This intervention will help improve school performance and retention of the pupils.

Long-Term Impact

The project will improve academic performance and primary school completion of 200 pupils. This will contribute to higher educational attainment and better careers for these children and ultimately help break the perpetual poverty cycle in this community
