School placement for 25 girls in deprived communities

This project will sponsor the education of 25 girls for the next academic year - providing free education for girls who come from the most deprived communities in Ghana.

In collaboration with Achievers Ghana, this project will see us covering the costs of schooling - placing five girls in private education, and a further twenty girls in public education with sufficient textbooks, and learning material for the year.

Challenge

In a slum, where most people live below the poverty line, the education of girls takes a backseat. Poverty, underdevelopment, illiteracy, ignorance, and conservatism cause girls to forego their fundamental right to education.

Given the impact of Covid-19, girls returning to school in January is of low priority. Many have missed out on a year of schooling and are a significant risk of falling behind, or out of education entirely.

Solution

Achievers Ghana has built a wide network of schools and educational partners across rural communities in Ghana, and have keen insight as to which girls in these rural communities have potential but may not be able to realise it due to financial restriction.

We will be working with Achievers Ghana to identify and place 25 girls in school for the next academic year, tracking their progress through the year and ensuring they have all the textbooks and learning material necessary for them to excel.

Impact

Access to quality education for girls will be crucial in combatting the relentless trend of poverty, disease and marginalisation of women in deprived communities in Ghana.

It will give girls and women confidence and command over their future, making them a great benefit to the communities in which they reside.
