Challenge

Education is very vital for the development of every community but in some rural communities of Ghana, education is never a part of the factors for development due to the lack of educational infrastructure. In the Akwaboa, Apuayem and Akyena communities in the Atwima Nwabiagya District of Ghana, children walk an average distance of 4.4km to access a school which has resorted in children not going to school but engaged in economic activities at the expense of their education.

Solution

The project will solve the problem of children walking distances to access school by bring school facility at their doorstep. It will eliminate the problem by reducing school going age in these community for children who are below the age brackets to access school. It will solve the problem of child labour in these communities since there will be school with recreational facility to attract the children to school every day.

Long-Term Impact

The project will improve the socio-economic situation in these communities by granting children and parent access to education. 5 women from each community is expected to get employment in the school. Farmers will have market for their produces. Children will be put in schools instead of the farming during school days and hours.
