Educational Material Heaven!

Educational Material Heaven!

We are so proud of all the educational material we have been able to acquire during the past years with your support. This has been the result of a careful evaluation of the educational needs of the children and the schools in our sphere of influence. It allowed us to align our material and programs accordingly. We have also stayed true to our strategic goal of being innovative in our approach by introducing material such as “hotdots”, “Squla” and “Osmoplay”.

In the coming weeks, we will further allocate and describe the goals of the materials used with each program in such a way that we achieve the best results with the children. Gery Verlinden our Expert Education Volunteer will assist us with this process.

Reading Club

Reading Club

Our Reading Club program has grown since it was first introduced in 2013. We now have several groups of children improving their reading skills in their own Reading Club group. We are very proud of the progress they are making and how it is contributing to their grades at school.

Now we have the opportunity to introduce a special Reading Club group. A special group for children with serious reading difficulties. We have looked at using a wide range of educational material to help these children improve their reading skills.  One of the fun and succesful methods is the use of clay to make the letters so that it becomes easier for them to remember.

I Want To Be Program

I Want To Be Program

The "I Want To Be" Program was run over a period of 3 weeks during the summer holidays and was completed on the 16th & 17th of September with a wonderful graduation ceremony in the presence of parents. It was an intense program with 2 sessions a day with 20 children at each session.  Let's share one of the comments we received from a participants sister on the impact of the program.  

"Blandina has become more confident and vocal.  She has discovered a mind of her own and she is able to choose what she likes for herself. The programme has really helped her.

We are extremely proud of our 40 participants who will go out into the world with confidence and skills!!

WakaWaka Solar Lights arrive in Ghana!!

WakaWaka Solar Lights arrive in Ghana!!

No electricity means no light once the sun sets. No light means that you can not do your homework and you do not feel safe. This is what we noticed when we read the short stories the children in Ghana wrote on how important a Wakawaka Solar light would be to them. There we were, with 150 Wakawaka Solar lights in our suitecases. All the children were excited to recieve their solar light. After a bit of explanation, each child  came forward to pick up their solar light.

We would like to thank you for making 150 children very happy!! Giving them back their sense of safety and the possibility to do their homework when there is no electricyty. Thank you for your support!
