Summary

The PAAJAF Educational Institute (PEI) Library ( CAARC) project is for both the PEI school children and their Gbawe Community in Ghana. It is intended to be a resource to the PEI main school program. PEI is dedicated to quality education within the classrooms and outside the classroom. We are also committed to introducing technology and its ability to make knowledge accessible through the internet to our community. Help is needed to make this possible. Can you help?

Challenge

PAAJAF Foundation has partnered with Worldreader and 35 e-reader devices have been donated for the project. Now help is needed to acquire the other resources needed to get the project fully implemented. Currently, there is no private or a community library in Gbawe. Many people cannot afford the high cost of purchasing reference materials for coursework, and sufficient access to technology and the Internet is lacking, so help is needed.

Solution

In the first year of the project, the library will be accessible to 100 primary school children and 35 adults. Currently, we have 35 eReaders from the Worldreader organisation that have been delivered to us. We are incredibly grateful to our sponsor who donated the cost of a Worldreader library to us! Our Next Tasks in this Project Find and secure a suitable physical location for the library. Purchase library chairs and tables. Install Internet Recruit and hire library staff

Long-Term Impact

An eReader Library will provide the much-needed resources for our children and for generations to come. Enhancing and upgrading the quality of education is PEI's primary goal. We know that education is the means to a better life for the children in Gbawe and the country of Ghana as a whole. Providing the necessary resources to provide a quality education is our main objective.
