The Challenge:

Donation of Bags to Pupil of Osunu Dompe Primary School by World Inspiring Network

It is indisputable that all children, irrespective of background, should have the right to an education. According to recent research conducted by UNICEF, more than 400,000 children in Ghana are not enrolled in pre-primary education. In recent years, the Ghanaian government has worked harder than ever to provide education for all, implementing numerous policies to make education more accessible. Attendance in school has increased dramatically as a result. Enormous challenges remain, however, with quality education still out of reach for thousands of children. Many cannot afford to attend school, with their families unable to support them financially. Others are encouraged to remain at home, working with their parents and contributing to the family’s income.

Challenges are often significantly greater for those in rural communities. Schools in these communities often lack crucial resources needed for learning, and children regularly leave school before completing their education. Poverty is endemic in many of these communities.

The Solution:

Studies consistently indicate a correlation between the prevalence of poverty and accessibility of education. In areas where quality education is more difficult to access, the rate of poverty is often greater. UNESCO estimates, in fact, that 171 million people around the world could escape extreme poverty if all children left school with basic reading skills. UNESCO also estimates that 617 million children and adolescents globally are not achieving minimum proficiency levels in reading. Statistics like these can be daunting – ensuring the provision of quality education for so many children may seem like something of an insurmountable task. By working to make quality education accessible to one child at a time, however, we at World Inspiring Network believe we can influence positive, sustained change among entire communities.

World Inspiring Network at Osunu Dompe

To do this, we desperately need your help. Please consider donating to our cause as we support the education of 120 children from some of Ghana’s poorest communities,conduct community sensitization workshops on children's non-school attendance to 1,500 community members and improve hygiene education by providing workshops on safe hygiene practices during COVID-19. Osunu Dompe, Ahomahomasu, Besebuom and Tafi Mador are often neglected by larger non-government organisations. Donate to provide them with the support they so desperately need.

Long-Term Impact:

The project will reduce the number of children who will be left out of school in four rural communities allowing them to escape poverty and become change agents in their own communities.
