Challenge

Every child has the right to education. The government of Ghana has shown this commitment through policy directives like the Free Compulsory Universal Basic Education Programme. In spite of all these efforts at ensuring that children realise their basic right to education, many children of school going age are also not in school in four targeted deprived districts such as the Kwahu Afram Plains North, Kwahu Afram Plains South, Kwahu East and South Districts in Ghana.

Solution

A flexible and innovative functional literacy programme known as the Complementary Basic Education Programme where out of school children beyond school starting age between the ages of 8 and 14 shall be identified and given opportunity to attain basic literacy and numeracy skills for 9 months period in their mother tongue. After this period, they will be assessed by the Education Directorate and then transition into the formal school to continue their education.

Long-Term Impact

This project is expected to enroll 6000 out of school children in four remote districts in the Eastern Region of Ghana into the formal school in three years. Through this, these vulnerable children will realise their basic right to education which would have been a mirage to attain. They will also become literate and be able to contribute to their own development and their society as a whole. They will also serve as role models in their local communities.
