Literacy School for Life Program in Ghana

SUMMARY

The Community and Family Aid Foundation in Ghana promote the empowerment of children and women by running School for Life programs.

What’s the issue, problem or challenge?

Of the 60 million primary-school-aged children without access to education, 70% live in Africa. Over 450,000 Ghanaian children are currently out of school, and as a result they all face the high likelihood of a poverty-stricken future.

How will this project solve this problem?

The Community and Family Aid Foundation are helping to educate children in the Ghanaian capital of Accra. The School for Life Program will educate more than 850 children over a year in a structured learning process. The program will also include an open literacy library where children will be able to access learning resources and books to further assist their development.  

Potential long term impact

All children that complete the program will be able to:

 

•Read a story

•Read current events and learn from it

•Write a letter to a family member 

•Calculate basic arithmetic

 

The program will bring together the community and create an environment where everyone can help, contribute and be a part of the literacy school for life.
