This village has over eight thousand people. The main occupation of the adult population is peasant farming and petty trading by the women.it is one of the few communities that encourage their girls to be in school and not marry them out early.

It has a very active young population of school going age. But the 300 pupils were housed in a small, temporary and unstable structure and under big trees.  Teaching and learning were impossible in the rains, sand storms and high winds. Teachers were poorly motivated. Thanks to a very kind UK family, we have been able to build their first ever proper school.

 

The current state of the school has led to low morale and motivation on the part of the teachers and a standard classroom block will boost their morale and motivate them to teach and this will improve the teaching learning condition of the school. Twelve neglected communities around Kanshegu will also benefit from the real opportunity to move out of poverty that education offers. We are delighted and certain that the lady the school commemorates would have fully approved of her family’s thoughtful intervention

Shoes on their way to our remote communities. We had an amazing promise of 2,000 pairs of trainers and school shoes from Shoe Aid.(www.shoeaid.co.uk) Many of our school children, particularly girls, have no shoes for the very long, rough walk to school. The girls also have to make longer walks now to find clean water. The Icing on the cake was a terrific offer from Samamiah Shipping Enterprises 

(www.samamiahshipping.co.uk )

They will not only collect from Nottingham and ship to Ghana but carry them all the way to Northern Ghana. Once there, our team will distribute them to the neediest. We look forward to sharing photos with you!

JUNE 2021 - Desks at Cheshugu and Wayamba

JUNE 2021 - Desks at Cheshugu and Wayamba

JUNE 2021 - Desks at Cheshugu and Wayamba

We built Cheshugu last year but the opening was delayed as most schools were shut for a year. Now we have desks there too, thanks to Stephen Palmer’s legacy. Stephen and his partner Eileen have helped us almost from the very start. We are so privileged. Wayamba was our completely re-built new school, (with help from CSRC). The local M.P. was able to provide desks here. The increasing input we have from local people really encourages us and we hope it will lead to more support. We are a small charity

with a mammoth task and need all the help we can find.

Both of these schools were handed over to Ghana Education Service (GES) in February.2021. GES recruit and pay teachers and take full responsibility for running and care of the schools. But local education funding is limited and rarely includes desks.
