The need: 

Speaking to John Bosco who is a teacher at A. M. E. Zion Basic, the subject that students struggle with the most is English. These students cannot afford to purchase classroom materials for most classes, with English being the major pain point. John mentioned that supporting students to purchase English textbooks will lead to improvement in academic performance. Current class grades are averaging 50%. 
Secondly, class capacities are limited and the school does not have adequate furniture to accommodate enough students in the classroom. By providing them with furniture, students will be comfortable in the classrooms. Currently, there are classrooms where 3 students share a desk. This is quite uncomfortable for students. Due to this issue, the school has asked that before students enroll in school they make a one time purchase of a desk. Meanwhile, most of these students cannot even afford to purchase textbooks. 
In John's own words, "Providing textbooks and furniture will make teaching and learning to become easy for both learners and teachers part. Textbooks will also motivate the learners to learn well since they have them as a guide."

 

Our goal: From July 5th- 25th, 2022 our goal is to raise $512 CAD  to be used to buy 12 Desks and 16 textbooks. This will help to reduce the barrier students face while attending school.

Past Collaborations 

2021: St Michael & all Angels Anglican Primary School in Komenda, Ghana.

The need: Students are unable to afford basic school supplies such as textbooks, notebooks and stationery, which has affected their education poorly. The literacy levels of students continue to drop sharply because parents cannot afford to keep up with the financial burden associated with education.

Past Impact : Through our collaboration with The Komenda Project, we were able to donate $560, which was used to buy school kits. The school kits were given to 100 students and 30 teachers at the St Michael & all Angels Anglican Primary School in Komenda, Ghana.
