Creating Better School Environment

Many children in the rural areas of Ghana live in poverty. Since the community is very poor, the living and education environment is challenging. What we have noticed through our assessment is that many of the children do not continue their education after grade 9 and as a result are not able to become valuable contributors in the community. This leads to homelessness, criminality and other mental health challenges. In the community, the lack of education has led to poor sanitation which has increased hospitalization visits for many health centers.

OnPoint Education  aims to inspire learners by changing their environment. We want to end the cycle of poverty and need. Your investment will renovate dismantled and unsafe schools, create libraries accessible by learners, provide excellent educational resources for teachers, buy trash bins around certain communities to help prevent sanitation challenges, and improve the learning environment for many children.

What we have been doing 

Re-development of schools – Re-developing small public schools in Ghana to give learners a chance to be innovative in their learning. Many of the school have no electricity, computers, library or resource centre, updated educational resources, etc. We started by renovating one school and created a resource centre which is equipped with computers and library for students to have access. We installed electricity into the school, fixed the ceilings and secured windows and doors to prevent outsiders from accessing the resource centre, installed lights, furniture and soon will set up computers.

We need your support to:
1. Complete the other classes in the school,
2. Purchase at least one computer for each class 
3. Create a library
4. Purchase resources to support teachers 
 
Your donation will have a profound impact for the families and children in the community who need it most. This will help change the learning environment of a child and inspire a child to be successful as we want no child to be left behind in their learning.

 Thank you for your support.
