With Sunada’s support, PoP is partnering with the Adaklu Amuzudeve community to construct a new three-unit block structure and create a quality learning environment for hundreds of students and teachers.
You're Making a Difference Here
While Ghana has experienced unprecedented growth and development over the past few years (IFAD report; African Development Bank), the country still faces many challenges, especially when it comes to access to education.
In Ghana, 17% of primary school age children are not enrolled in school and of those who are in school, 28% will drop out before completing primary school (UNESCO, 2018). Additionally, over 14% of the Ghanaian population is illiterate (UNESCO, 2018).
PoP works with over 170 communities in Ghana to ensure that students overcome these and other barriers to accessing quality education. Currently, PoP is impacting over 42,000 students in Ghana through School Builds, Teacher Support and WASH programming.
With a population of around 1,200, this farming community is located within the Adaklu District of the Volta Region. The Ewe language is spoken here.
Sunada's Impact in Adaklu Amuzudeve
The Amuzudeve D.A Basic School currently has six classrooms that were provided by the government, but two classes do not have their own rooms and are instead learning under trees outside the building. These conditions hinder education, making it impossible to learn when it is raining and posing a hazard to student safety and engagement.
In the coming months, PoP will be partnering with the Adaklu Amuzudeve community to build two new classrooms and a new teacher’s office. The community is committed to providing higher-quality education to its students and will contribute 20% of the resources and labor required for construction. We expect to break ground in January 2022 and hope to complete construction in June 2022.
The new Amuzudeve D.A Basic School will provide a high-quality learning environment where every student can reach their unique potential.
