Story

Taking a week off to do some proper work...little bit about charity below if you're interested...

''Humanitas Charity runs a primary school located in the remote, rural community of Ayensuako in southern Ghana. It forms part of our Education Matters programme. In Ayensuako, families live in basic mud huts without electricity or sanitation and do their best to live off the land, although the climate and conditions make it a real challenge to grow or sustain crops. Three hours’ drive from the nearest city, this isolated, hidden community is miles from the main road and so receives no aid or support from outside the community. When you consider Ayensuako has no infrastructure or local trade, life in the village is a daily struggle for survival. Our school caters for 230 children, providing them with full-time education, and a chance to break the endless cycle of poverty in their community. Our school is staffed by qualified teachers and we provide our students with all of the tools and books they need to succeed. Primary school normally lasts for 6 years, however an official report from the Ghanaian authorities suggests that only about 21% of primary school students in Ghana are in the appropriate grade for their age. Poor performance is common in areas like rural Ghana, so we aim to cater for 7-8 years of education, to allow our students to repeat if necessary. Once our students finish primary school we will support their transition to high school and further education.''
