Located on the outskirts of Accra, Chorkor is one of the poorest low-income, indigenous housing communities in the area. According to a CHF report, the situation in Chorkor is considered “poverty endemic. “ As a dangerously overpopulated area, Chorkor lacks basic infrastructure such as toilets, bath houses, drains, and roads. Houses are generally made of brick and mud. Surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean, fishing, fish mongering, and fish smoking are the primary occupations of this community. The area is stricken with communicable diseases and other illnesses related to unhygienic practices. The lack of proper sewage systems and drains causes waste water to run from home to home and children defecating along drains in the community.

In the midst of this overpopulated area, ILLITERACY is high, as it is common to see children at the seaside, roaming the streets or hauling goods in the market.

The cycle of illiteracy continues from generation to generation, due to the low priority or understanding of education.

Your donation- will give a child the long lasting gift of an education, a meal which will give him the nutrition needed and healthcare his family cannot afford
