The family learning project is an ongoing project initiated by the PAAJAF foundation to address the different educational challenges faced by the Gbawe community.

monthly donors


Gbawe community only has one public school available which is overcrowded and classes are generally twice the size of those considered acceptable in the Developed World. Gbawe population mainly comprises low-income families that cannot afford private education therefore having many children out of school reinforcing the circle of poverty and illiteracy. For that purpose, the project is seeking for help to acquire a plot of land to provide a scholarship learning centre to accommodate the children


The project maintains Phase I and follow-up with Phase II that includes 120 preschool children, 15 primary school-age and 10 adults through adult education. Children between the ages of 1 and 15 years old to get a quality education and develop to their fullest human potential. A plot of land, classroom tables and chairs will be purchase and support to project staff to provide a scholarship learning centre for the children we are sponsoring and other underprivileged children in our community

Long-Term Impact

This is an ongoing educational project that aims to create an environment in which underprivileged children in Gbawe Community can develop to their fullest potential. Currently we have 120 children (30 with full and 90 partial scholarship). We strong believe that by hearing lessons of success from beneficiaries, a domino effect can take place across the community helping in promoting the importance of education for 135 children and 10 adults.
