There are many children who are deprived of basic social amenities including access to education as a result of their disability. In Ghana deaf and blind children are mostly isolated and looked down upon. The covid-19 situation has worsened their already existing situation and many of such kids are calling in for support. Its very difficult to ignore the plight of such vulnerable children when they ask for food and educational material support. In all the Project hopes to reach 1500 kids.
There are over 5000 deaf and blind children within the Central and Western Regions of Ghana. Many of these kids are neglected and deprived due to their condition. Majority of the children come from very poor homes and deprived communities and parents find it difficult to provide for simple food and educational support for their wards. Many who can afford some kind of education struggle to stay in school due to financial constraints. The current covid-19 global trend has also worsened the case.
The Project is already assisting some of the children with food and educational material support but the number of children are overwhelming and in great need. This project would reach 1500 deaf and blind children through your support and donations and provide them with food relief and also educational materials in anticipation of the opening of our Schools. All beneficiary children would be visited at their various homes and encourage to stay healthy and take their education serious.
This project would support and encourage 1500 deaf and blind children to stay healthy and take formal education seriously. It will give opportunity to these deaf and blind children and give them the chance to remain in School and not drop out due to lack of educational support systems available in their community and also as a result of their parents inability to provide for their basic educational needs.
