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.


The good news is that the communities have gladly accepted the project and have donated acres of land for the building of school, dispensary, library and ICT center.

We are hereby entreating the general public to donate GH¢2.00 via the online link (https://app.mpowerpayments.com/click2pay-redirect/85bfa435e94b85f8ca7233b0)  OR

BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE ONGOING PROJECTS.


  • RURAL COMMUNITY PROJECT

Quality primary education is a fundamental right of every child. This right is enshrined in the Convention of Rights of the Child. Among several things mentioned in the convention for the state to provide in order to ensure quality primary education is the provision of infrastructural facilities which should be accessible to all children.

Problem statement

The absence of basic school facility and infrastructure continues to impact negatively on children's performance in school and life.

Related to the above is the fact that currently, children of school-going age do not have access to quality basic education due to lack of basic educational facility around Deme and its other four (4) environs. For those who attempt to go to school, they have to walk for awfully long distances (about 5.10km thus 3.5 miles) to the nearest town, Dabala. As such, children of school-going age do not attend school due to the very long distance they had to cover. They are sometimes knocked down by passing vehicles. Among the problems also are a lack of appropriate preschool facilities like teaching and learning materials, school, furniture, just to mention but a few in the existing school at Dabala. To make matters worse,  some of the facilities which house the children are dilapidated. 

The classroom is a wooden structure (shed - See picture below). Children cannot attend school during the raining seasons due to the hazards the rains pose. Parents prefer their children stay at home rather than expose them to the dangers on the way to school due to the rains. The situation is further exacerbated by the high poverty levels of the parents making it increasingly difficult to meet basic needs of children including prescribed school uniforms and some books.

To tackle the problem and to reduce the long distance walking, the PeaceAids International took the initiative to provide a 6-unit classroom block which will include a health post for first Aid for the children, a library, and I. C. T center.
This project will be implemented using community centered development approach, such that the community is willing to make some level commitment by providing certain requirements. This they have done by donating acres of land to support the project.

Hence the ‘’THE CEDI BAAKO P3’’ FUNDRAISING STRATEGY is geared towards raising funds to solve this problem for the affected villages.

THE E-DELIVERY PROJECT

INTRODUCTION

Teenage pregnancy and maternal health  remains part of the most important public health issue in recent times. The rise in teenage pregnancies and other social menace connected to adolescent in these villages coupled with the high rates of infant mortality have been the result of lack of or limited knowledge on sex education and maternal health  issues among adults and adolescents.  This has attracted innovations and strategies by governments, donors, and civil society organization to help curb the situation.

Maternal health is of utmost importance throughout the world and for that matter captured in the United Nation Sustainable Development goals (SDGs).
From research, one of the causes of maternal mortality and infant death is the availability of information for the expectant mothers to govern their actions and decisions during their pregnancy periods. We recognize such concern and as such the PeaceAids International has introduced the ‘’E-delivery’’ project to contribute towards improving maternal health during the periods of pregnancy. The E-DELIVERY PROJECT (Pregnancy school) is a system which will operate both online and offline to enable pregnant women to get access to information related to maternal health issues during the pregnancy period and through the postpartum period. The online platform will employ the ‘’What social Application’’ ( WhatsApp) that will make use of a health team available for interaction with the expectant mothers. Thus, a team of health personnel will be available on the platform with the expectant mothers who can contact them anywhere and anytime in any of our member states connected or signed on to the platform. The expectant mothers will receive expert advice on any condition the might be experiencing and all their questions will be addressed. 

We intend to liaise with the clinics across Ghana and all around the world where our member states operate. These clinics will serve as a referral point to our clients.

However, the expectant mothers who perhaps are illiterate and for that matter cannot be engaged with the online platform the will be introduced to be offline pregnancy school. The pregnancy school will be facilitated such that all pregnant women in the said community will gather at a designated place for health personnel to educate and talk to them regarding issues regarding their health. This would be done with the help of volunteering community health personnel will provide.
