Kindergarten Catchment Project – Ghana

Hillside - GhanaOur involvement in this project is part of a larger endeavor to build a Kindergarten/Nursery School in KwakuSae, a community of farmers in the West Akim District of the Eastern Region of Ghana. The project is coordinated by Peace Corps Volunteer W. Ruge.

The planned school project will be of concrete and block, with three open classrooms for the students and staff. In addition, there will be an office and a closable storeroom for supplies.

Our project funds will be used to put rain gutters around the building. The water collected from the roof will be directed into a large 3,000-liter plastic tank that is on the site, but is presently unused.

The community will provide labor, sand, gravel and transportation of materials for the project.

This community has exhibited a strong desire to improve the educational facilities that they offer their children and those from surrounding communities.

The Ghana Ministry of Education has recognized the value of this project and indicated its continued support for this level of education in KwakuSae.

For several years, the Kindergarten/Nursery school has operated from meager facilities of mud and sheet metal. With improved facilities, the community leaders will be able to provide for quality education for their own children, and also attract children from surrounding communities.

This project will have a direct impact on approximately 600 people.

With great community and school participation, this project will succeed in creating an environment conducive to early childhood education. By joining a larger effort, our contribution, which will lead to a water supply for the children, will have a much greater impact than it could have had as an individual project.
