Project Update

It is sometimes easy to put off things until tomorrow, but when tomorrow may bring illness or worse the meaning has a sense of urgency.  The people who are helped by donations to the PAAJAF face a tomorrow everyday where there just isn’t enough to go around.  Your support of this charity will ensure a child the right to live with hope for the next day.

Unfortunately, the school fees arrears of our current sponsored child still left unpaid and we here at PAAJAF is calling for help on their behalf.

Our client Group educational Circumstances

Children’s Education: Public schools in the area are normally very over-crowded. Due to the demography of the city (56% under 24 years) and the growing population (migration and natural increase), 24,500 new school places must be created in the basic school system (primary and junior high) each year for 10 years. Classes are generally twice the size of those considered acceptable in the Developed World. The teachers are therefore unable to give individual attention to any pupils in the normal school hours; this affects attainment levels. Whilst most Ghanaians have access to primary and some secondary education, there is a high drop out rate in primary school, especially for girls. The Multiple Indicator Cluster Survey (MICS 2006) stated that only 22.3% of females and 25.9% of males completed primary school in 2007.

 

Thank you to understand the impact.
