WITH YOUR HELP...'NO MORE SCHOOL UNDER TREES FOR CHILDREN'
Organized by: Edward Bandoh
Hello, i’m Edward Bandoh from Accra, Ghana and i have been a teacher for almost six years now. There are some challenges we the teachers and the youth of my community have been facing for years in terms of education. The current government made a lot of promises in their manifesto to help the youth achieve their aim in terms of educational needs. If you have been on the news lately, you must have heard the current government of my country is rated second on the list of most corrupted governance in the whole of Africa. Due to their poor performance, teachers and students in the rural areas are really suffering. Each and everyday, we sit under trees to teach this children from poor homes in order help them build their interest in education. We sit under trees because there is no classroom block for us and often protected from the sunlight by the shades of the trees. Sometimes we release them to go home when the rain sets in leaving us with no other option. We may even come the next day to meet the whole place filled with mud especially in the rainy season. My reason for creating this page is to help build a two classroom block to support my community
