SCHOOL REFURBISHING

We currently serve Dadome Primary secondary school in Mepe, Volta region of Ghana, and Mijomboni Primary School in Kenya. Our changemakers travel to these rural village schools and spend  7 days working on refurbishing classrooms through wall paintings, window and door repairs as well all general construction on buildings.  We add a touch of art to their school buildings. With about a recorded 75% recorded dropout rate from NICEF 2019 report, our goal with this project is to get as many children to gain a sense of belonging and pride in their schools and environment. Activities such as this one have been known to increase the retention rate by 25%. As this will give the children a sense of pride and ownership through their art on the buildings. Most artworks are educational and turn out to teach kids the power of expression. Painting is done by volunteers and the kids.

School Essentials

In collaboration with Dream feet Foundation, we collect and donate shoes, clothing, socks, and other materials kids need for school. These
items are placed in a community box to be delivered by Santa on Christmas day in the rural
regions of the Ashanti, Eastern, and Northern Regions where children have very little access to
modern facilities, proper clothing, and care. Santa visits less privileged kids who don’t even
dream of receiving a gift during Christmas. It’s a dream come true for these kids as gifts from
collected donations are given out during this festive season.

Playground

There are 600 school children in Mepe-Ghana, attending Dadome basic primary school without a single playground. Playground equipment provides numerous opportunities for kids to participate in unstructured, active play.

โ€‹

With your help, we can change this. This year we will be installing 1 playground to serve the school.  We will also be providin 1000 school children in Kenya at the Mijomboni primary school with a playground as well.

 

We aim to install at least 1 playground for the village school with the hopes that it will provide a community for these children to learn and grow. Oftentimes, school and community playgrounds are the foundation of friendships that last years

HEALTH AWARENESS

We are most proud of our donations to the young women at Dadome Primary School who urgently needed Sanitary towels and hygiene kits. We were able to provide each teenager with enough supplies to last them a whole year. We would love to get your support to continue to help many of these women who have little to no access to hygiene supplies in the villages.

Early LITERACY INTERVENTION

This project is geared towards bringing volunteers and taking them to rural areas to teach and
assist teachers and the community in rural areas. Text books, exercise books, stationery and
other educational tools are given out to kids and schools to aid education. We encourage the
children to write stories and practice creative writing. Some of these stories will be shared with
our donors to inspire the impact they make.

Computer Lab installation

There are 600 school children in Mepe-Ghana without access to technology. The school is on the grid, which makes it easy for us to install a computer lab. We intend to install 20 computers and  1 printer to serve the school's administration and students. We seek to close the digital divide in third-world countries. We provide an authentic learning experience with a good dose of dopamine. Volunteers will work with other organizations to supply the schools with 20 laptop/desktop computers with pre-installed software to teach and allow the children to interact with the hardware and learn about the software.
