Equalizing children’s education opportunities in rural areas in Ghana by improving access to formal education, including educational therapy classes, organizing spare time activities, raising up the childcare awareness among mothers and workshops for teachers

The aim of the project was to provide equal educational opportunities for children living in rural regions of Ghana by enhancing the quality of education and developing teachers’ teaching skills and supporting the operation of the Janusz Korczak Day Care Center. The project also included the development of a system of classes that was supplemented by unconventional methods of pedagogical therapy, informal education and effective development of a child in the dimension of school education and development of individual talents. Furthermore, awareness-raising classes under the project provided young mothers with knowledge about basic principles of caring for children, hygiene and anti-malaria prevention. Trainings for teachers and educators enabled to increase the level of knowledge about methods of working with children.

During the period from 18 July until 31 December 2015, Caritas Poland in cooperation with the Janusz Korczak Day Care Center performed a project aimed at providing equal educational opportunities for children living in rural regions of Ghana by enhancing the quality of education and developing teachers’ teaching skills and supporting the operation of the Janusz Korczak Day Care Center. The project was performed in Mankessim, Duaga and neighbouring villages – localities in the central region of Ghana. The project directly covered approx. 100 children in the age between 2 and 15 years and over 60 mothers and 8 teachers of the Janusz Korczak DCC.

The project directly referred to the Millennium Development Goals related to education and reducing disparities between cities and villages. The above mentioned goals were achieved by providing specialist and dedicated assistance to 3 social groups in Ghana (children, women, teachers and educators).

  • Children: assistance by the emotional and social and intellectual development of children by providing them with an educational offer in specialist centres;
  • Women: raising the awareness of women as to their responsibility for bringing up children (children’s development, pro-health education);
  • Teachers and educators: increasing the knowledge about the methodology of working with children.
