Build a School Building in Rural Ghana

by Onechild Ghana

Summary

This project will a host in a school in Nerebehi, a rural village in the Ashanti Region of Ghana. We support technical and vocational education schools, teaching trades and skills to children who have ended state-funded education in Ghana, which stops at 16, and this hostel will give students an opportunity to continue their education and learn key employable skills.

Challenge

State-funded education in Ghana stops at 16 after that point children often leave school without employable skills. Our schools teach technical and vocational skills, like dressmaking, masonry, catering and electrical engineering, but as there are only 14 such schools, students needs to stay at the schools during the week. The hostel in Nerebehi is old and decrepit, meaning the children are unsafe overnight and don't want to attend school.

Solution

We will build a new hostel which will house students overnight in a safe and sheltered condition, and provide them with a space to continue their studies through homework, revision and reading.

Long-Term Impact

The schools we support help educate young Ghanaians with academic subjects, and in addition teaches them technical and vocational skills like dress-making, catering, carpentry, masonry and electrical engineering. This hostel will give parents encouragement to send their children to school by keeping their children safe while at school, and in turn make them more employable and set them up for a better future.
