These projects will create learning opportunity for school age children and increase the literary rate in the community.



This summer I will be traveling with volunteers, to assist
with the install of the solar on the schools, as well as other projects. This will be my second time volunteering in Ghana.

These projects will create learning opportunity for school
age children and increase the literary rate in the community.

These projects are in the Volta Region in Ghana. We will
install solar panels on the Amway Academy School as well as the Ve Avekpo Primary School to increase capacity and improve the educational facilities. Along with the schools, VIDA will partner with the community and a local NGO to start a community farm and a breakfast program for the students. The overall objective of the projects is to increase children’s access to education and improve the quality of education in the Area. Ghana has made serious investments in its future by providing public schooling for its children
through junior high level, contributing teachers and an established curriculum. For all this progress, Ghana still has a long way to go in meeting global standards in education, economic development and sustainability. Its growth is
outpacing its infrastructure. These schools cannot currently meet the needs of the community. As the literacy, Information Communication Technology (ICT) and
education levels rise in the population so does the demand for improved learning environments. Installing solar power on the existing schools will increase capacity by extending the usage into the evening. The students will be able to receive evening instruction, study into the evening independently and adult literacy classes can be held at night.

Volunteer involvement in the construction of the school will
help build the spirit of community service and volunteerism among the future generations in this community.
