Challenge

Currently there are over 150 children in our sports program ranging from the ages of seven to their late teens. Many of these youth, outside school hours, has no further ways and means for extra study hours. They spend much of these hours playing in the park and street. We have been fortunate in bringing them together using sports as the medium. It is now time to also solve the extra educational gap by giving them a unique place to play, learn and do their home work.

Solution

By providing an educational cubicle the children and youth will be able to have a place where they can be taught after school lessons and also develop their computer literacy. Once we have them coming to the park to play soccer or basketball, we will have breaks in-between training session so that they can receive assistance in their homework. There will also be special free computer literacy classes in the evenings, weekends and during vacations for all children and youth of the community.

Long-Term Impact

The project will benefit over 150 children and youth in and around Cape Coast allowing them to have a place which will provide them extra educational attention while at the same time increasing their reading and computer literacy skills.
