Since education is the key to upward mobility, PAAJAF Educational Institute (PEI) Family Learning project needs to have a permanent place for the poor orphans, and underprivileged and neglected children, youth and Adults, especially women to receive education in the Gbawe Community and beyond in Ghana. The Family Learning Center (FLC) has already yielded numerous social benefits since its inception by providing a private education option to supplement the crowded public school. Next step for our project is to scale-up and purchase a convenient permanent land to construct a school building.
We need your help to make this project a reality and to ensure that the literacy rate in the GGC continues to rise. The new school will provide education to 320 young and 50 adult students and offer jobs to the local community in Gbawe.
PAAJAF’s family learning project strives to address issues regarding the literacy and employment in the Gbawe Community to help improve education by establishing a scholarship school education to supplement the Government agenda. To start this, we have started a Family learning project where we currently have 145 children and 14 adults in rented premises. We need your help to buy 2 plots of land to start a permanent school building to target 320 children and 50 adult literacy participants.
Our ongoing Family Learning Center (FLC) serves as a pilot project for the proposal. It has already yielded numerous social benefits since its inception. The FLC provided a private education option to supplement the crowded public school. Through the adult literacy program, 14 members of Ghana and the Gbawe Community (GGC) have undergone a life-changing experience. Those individuals now recognize English alphabet and continue to make progress in becoming literate members of society. Knowledge is an asset; the adults learning to read can use this asset in obtaining better employment opportunities and, eventually, assist their children with their homework assignments.
To ensure that the literacy rate in the GGC continues to rise due to the impact of this project, we propose scaling-up of the current project by allocating convenient permanent land and school building for Gbawe students. Phase I and II of the proposal include purchasing 2 plots of land to start building of a school complex to provide education for 320 children in basic level and adults, especially women, in adult literacy education and Land documentation.
|Purchase of Land||$40,000|
The project will positively impact Gbawe community as a whole and bring social and economic benefits by strengthening the human capital within the community. It is well-recognized that education has a substantial impact on employment prospects. Literacy skills are essential for getting into the workforce. Consequently, a highly skilled workforce is essential for a strong and competitive economy.
Scaling up the Family Learning Project and the increase in student enrollment will consequently contribute to the job creation within the community. The sample offered jobs will include jobs on the construction site, teaching and nursing jobs, administrative work, etc. Besides the social and economic development, it is documented that education has a profound impact on population health and well-being
