Playgrounds & Vocational Project for Jamestown.

Summary

The impact of the sports and education project has compelled us to expand our activities to meet the increasing number of women and children in the community we operate. This project is a continuation of the previous but focusing more on direct development of the women and children other than constructing of the actual space. This project fuses on economic stability of teenage mothers, early child development and the use of sports to harness children right to education and play.

Challenge

The Infrastructure and amenities in Jamestown are either non-existent or antiquated and appalling with the community having little access to toilets and sanitation, no recreation areas, and very limited affordable education. Around 70% of the population work in the transient job market as traditional fishermen and fishmongers with an average monthly income of less than USD $80, however due to the weather, even this income is not guaranteed.

Solution

1. Providing the community with a playground with a module of using sports to influence children back into school. 2. Empowering provide teenage mothers and at-risk girls for economic stability through vocational training 3. Promote early child literacy and development for the babies of teenage mothers and more. 4. Organize computer literacy training for children and women to build their confidence and exposing them to the tech- world and being safe

Long-Term Impact

DUNK contributes to Ghana's social and economical development on a long-term basis: the organization not only provides a safe environment for children, it also ensures an opportunity for children to play sports, helping DUNK pursuing its mission. The organization offers job opportunities for locals who will be provided with employability skills. By improving and constructing development centers at various project sites, DUNK will impact positively a large amount of youth and empower locals.
