Summary

Unfortunately, most deprived families in Ghana cannot afford the basic expenses to send their child to school despite the effort put in place by the government to improve quality education. Brilliant pupils are forced to drop out of school and as a result, most girls get impregnated, continuing the cycle of poverty. This project helps address this issue by providing scholarships to pupils in the rural areas especially those who are at risk of dropping out of school in the Eastern Region.

Challenge

High performing students are forced to drop out of school, never given the opportunity to fulfill their potential and perpetuating the cycle of poverty with girls being at most risk. Girls who drop out of school are more likely to get pregnant which gives rise to early marriages and hence an increased rate of unemployment.

Solution

Our team in direct partnership with AJ Foundation Ghana are working hard to partner the Ministry of Education, Ghana Education Service, stakeholders, and other NGOs to identify academically gifted students who need financial assistance to continue their education. Tuition, school supplies, and other expenses will be provided to ensure they enroll in school, not to drop out and complete their school year. We will also meet the students regularly for social support and vocational guidance.

Long-Term Impact

Our project aims at supporting 50 girls a year to come back to school. Quality education, especially for girls and women, has been identified as the most powerful weapon in the global fight against poverty, disease, and hunger. Education for girls is necessary for alleviating poverty. One might question how women education is related to alleviating poverty. Well, it is simple; women will be able to share the huge burden of suppressing poverty. Education means more productivity.
