Summary

As part of PAAJAF's commitment to provide high quality education to children in Gbawe through a holistic approach, sports emerge as a critical area within child's development, that can foster not only learning improvement but the acquisition of important life-skills. This project intends to integrate sports into the school curriculum as a means for better education and personal development.

Challenge

Given the constraints faced by children in Ghana regarding the universal right to education, namely lack of public schools, inadequate school conditions and basic curriculum, it is important to go that extra-mile and try to engage them in a diversified array of activities. Participation in sports can also serve as a hobby to discourage children to drifting towards dangerous life choices such as school drop-out, crime and violence, that can undermine their chance for a more prosperous life path.

Solution

PAAJAF perceives regular sports practice to be another crucial way to promote education among children through the chance to play, learn and develop their skills in a peaceful and sustainable environment. We will provide children with physical education twice a week. These weekly sports interactions will not only improve children's physical abilities and development, but will contribute to teaching children important life skills for their future such as teamwork, leadership, communication.

Long-Term Impact

By providing children with a peaceful and sustainable school environment, we will be creating a motivational environment for them to learn not only intellectual skills, but also to develop their capacities as part of the community, outside the classroom. A child that can benefit from this holistic approach, by integrating sports into their everyday life, will grow into a more emotionally stable and prepared citizen with health awareness and a sense of their place in the community.
