Challenge

The East Mamprusi district has a total number of 309 communities with only 15 of them have Junior High schools. As a result students in the district after completing primary school education in their respective communities have to look for the nearest community with a Junior High School to attend. (Junior high school is the last 3 years of basic education). Because of this problem students have to walk long distance to attend Junior high school. The problem is impacting negatively on the student

Solution

This project will provide bicycles to 150 underprivileged students from the deprived and hard to reach communities in the district. The bicycles will serve as a means of transport to school for the students. The project will also encourage more students from the deprived and hard to reach communities to attend Junior High School. Most of these students dropout of school as result of the distance they walk to school everyday. The will reduce the dropout rate significantly.

Long-Term Impact

Beneficiaries of this project will be able to complete their basic education (Junior high school) and will also attend Senior high school. The deprived and hard to reach communities in the district will have more children progressing to the Senior High School level.
