Challenge

Globally, Africa is home to more than half of out of school children of primary age ( 6yrs - 11yrs) according to the UNESCO Institute of Statistics. Two of the major factors identified are poor infrastructure and low quality of education. This problem is more evident in rural public community schools in Ghana. The poor state of infrastructure and the inadequate learning and teaching materials negatively affects the quality of teaching and students interest to learn.

Solution

IMYouth Foundation is building an environmentally friendly four-unit multi-purpose classroom block to provide creative, fun, and engaging learning activities for rural children of school-going age. Local teachers will also be trained to use the activity-based method of teaching through experimentation and play.

Long-Term Impact

The project will equip 200 rural students with critical thinking skills, increasing their interest in learning and understanding of science and technology.
