Support the Cape 3 Points team in expanding educational opportunities
Fundraising for EduSpots
Verified by JustGiving
Cape 3 Points is a very remote fishing community in the western region of Ghana. Quality educational resources are lacking, but there is the aspiration for change with community members having big dreams for the future of education in their community!
EduSpots is a UK and Ghanaian fully audited registered charity, who worked with over 250 local community-based volunteers across Ghana and Kenya to create transformational educational opportunities through community owned and led education spaces named 'Spots'. See www.eduspots.org.
In Cape 3 Points, we are working with teachers, community members, students and Escape Ecolodge to raise educational opportunities, working closely with Cape 3 Points government school and other local partners.
Since 2022, using some funds raised by students in Sevenoaks UK, we have created a small library space within the school that will act as a resource centre, open beyond school hours.
We have supported the connection of electricity to this area of the school so that learning can take place in the evening, alongside providing furniture for the library and adjacent classrooms, alongside Ghanaian storybooks and textbooks.
The school have donated a spare bookcase alongside chairs and tables to make the space operational as quickly as possible, with the painting even completed by the headmaster himself!
12 local volunteers from Cape 3 Points will be travelling to our regional conference in Elmina in May to receive training and collaborate with others in the areas of project management, literacy development, early years, girls' empowerment and practical science and environmental education, before choosing which clubs they will lead at the Spot.
As a team, we all have bigger dreams for the project and the community.
These are the items that the community volunteers are requesting more support with in priority order, to enable them to lead further change in Cape 3 Points.
1. Further furniture to allow more kids to read and study in the space (tables, chairs and bookshelves)
2. A community event to explain the EduSpots' project, commission the project and promote the value of education more widely.
3. Refurbishing the classroom next door to the library to allow more space for learners to read and study.
4. IT equipment and projector
5. Support for a girls' empowerment project
6. Kindergarten level resources and games
7. Local textbooks
8. Science equipment
9. Local storybooks
We will place photos of all items funded on this page. Note that EduSpots is a UK and Ghanaian registered charity with all of our accounts audited. Fundraising here will be restricted to all costs relating to the Cape 3 Points project.
Any support - £10, $10, 100 cedis, would make a real difference to this community, and you will see the change directly.
EduSpots is an educational movement which connects, trains, and equips local community volunteers (teachers, students and community members from the community) to drive the creation of sustainable educational projects. Our vision is of a world in which communities unite to create the future they want to see, with our motto #OurCollectiveFuture.
Since 2015, we have supported 300 educational catalysts to create transformational education opportunities for over 15,000 students in 50 communities across Ghana and Kenya, through the creation of education spaces named 'Spots' which are owned and led by the communities. We run programmes in basic project management (SpotOps), literacy development (EduLit), early years (EduKidz), practical STEM and environmental education (EcoSTEM), and girls' empowerment (Ignite Girls).
All training is led by our staff of 16 part-time experienced and passionate Ghanaian staff, many of whom have experience of running and volunteering at our Spots themselves.
