About 60% of children at the ages of 3 to 17years in the rural villages in Bomponso village in Eastern Ghana do not attend school. Over 60% of children living in Bomponso village and its neighboring communities are missing out on primary school education. About 45 percent of these are girls. These children are at greater risk for exploitation by becoming victims of child labor, early marriage, unemployment and lower income-earning potential.
HAF is working hard to address these critical issues, as part of our mission in reducing illiteracy and improving the quality of education children receive, we decided to build a school that will provide vulnerable children with quality education, available resource for learning and thriving environment to excel. The new educational center we are building will accommodate 80-200 children from the ages of 3 to 17years, from kindergarten, lower grade and middle school. Our vision for this initiative is to ensure that every child-regardless of gender, ethnicity or circumstances-has access to a quality education.
