PEACEAIDS DEME COMMUNITY EDUCATION PROJECT, VOLTA REGION. GHANA





Currently about one hundred and twenty-Seven (127) children of school-going age do not have access to basic quality education due to lack of basic educational facility in Deme and its surrounding villages. In an earlier study conducted in Deme and it neighbouring communities, only forty (46) children were reported to be attending school. However, they are challenged to walk a distance of about 5.10km (3.5 miles) to the nearest town, Dabala, to attend school. Discounting all the attendant risks associated with this situation this has led to an increase in the number of school drop outs. 
The challenges of accessibility are compounded by lack of teachers, poor teaching and learning materials as well as deplorable state of the wooden structure in Dabala. Thus, during the raining season, parents of Deme and nearby communities ( Sagbakope, Dzokplenu, Kosamkope, Patukope and Avorvlorte) keep their children at home to avoid exposing them to the dangers associated with bad weather conditions.
The situation is further exacerbated by the high poverty levels of the people making it increasingly difficult for parents to meet the basic educational needs of their children including prescribed school uniforms. The combination of these factors contributes to higher school drop-out rate especially among the females. One consequence of this is the observed high teenage pregnancy and girl-child marriage in the area.

To tackle the challenges above, PeaceAids International is soliciting assistance to provide a 9 - unit classroom block which includes ancillary facilities such as a health post (for first Aid), a library and an I.C.T. room.
This project will be implemented using community- centered development approach which commits the community to the project. In this regard the community, through its traditional leadership, has provided a five (5) acre land for the project and is ready to provide communal labour at all stages of the project.

A NATION IN CRISES - DILEMMA OF CHILDREN IN RURAL COMMUNITY FOR EDUCATION

A NATION IN CRISES - DILEMMA OF CHILDREN IN RURAL COMMUNITY FOR EDUCATION


Malala Yousafzai (Pakistani Activist for female Education and Noble Prize laureate) said, "In some parts of the world, students are going to school every day. It's their normal life. But in other parts of the world, children are starving for education; it's like a precious gift. It's like a diamond…" This is exactly what the children in Deme and other deprived villages experience every blessed day.
On any given day, more than 1 billion of the world’s children go to school. Whether they sit in buildings, in tents or under trees, ideally they are learning, developing and enriching their lives.

The ‘’CEDI BAAKO P3’’ which literary means ‘’ one Ghana cedi only’’ is a fundraising modality and an initiative of PeaceAids international and PeaceAids Ghana to help raise fund for projects being run by PeaceAids in Ghana. The idea is to appeal to a million Ghanaians to donate at least GH¢1.00 to support these projects.

No one achievement has been accomplished without support from the society. For this reason, we humbly appeal to every single person or individual to kindly contribute towards the realization of these projects.

 Children from Deme and its adjoining villages (Sabgakope, Dzokplenu, Kosakope, Patukope and Avorvlorte) always have to walk about 10.20km to Dabala (a suburb of South Tongu District in the Volta Region of Ghana, West Africa) which is the nearest town to them to go to school or access the nearest clinic.  
‘’THE CEDI BAAKO P3’’ FUNDRAISING STRATEGY, therefore, is geared towards raising fund to solve this problem and also pilot the E-delivery project and Adolescent reproductive health education in these villages.
