Parents in Manpong, Ghana are currently pulling their children out of school due to insufficient supplies, teachers and space. They do not feel that their children are learning in the unfavorable environment. The children are attending school in rented buildings that are unsafe. They are unable to keep teachers due to lack of supplies and space. Most rooms do not have desks or seats for the students that do attend. Volunteers for International Development and Aid (VIDA) has partnered with this community to change the conditions and attract students back to class. Three classrooms were started in May 2010 and will be completed in the next month. Once the building is complete the community will need assistance with books, pencils, paper and learning tools. Volunteers will be traveling to the community this summer to build desks for the students.


20,000 USD has been raised and sent to complete the construction of the three new classrooms in this community. The project was started in May 2010 and is expected to be completed by July 2010. Money for educators, supplies and furniture is still needed.


This project will provide a stable environment to 90 eager learners a year, for many years to come.
