About The Project

Any location can be nice to read and learn for those who love to read and write according to some individuals. They might argue that it does not matter what room you are in, that knowledge is immaterial, that the physical context is secondary, and that focusing on what you are reading is what is important.

But if we move this reasoning to the realities of educational environments, the scientific proof is flagrant: for students to obtain the desired academic outcomes, getting rooms and learning spaces in good conditions is decisive. In other words, the situations of the classrooms specifically influence the standard of the pupils.

The truth is that a healthy school infrastructure, with refreshed spaces, makes it easier for children and young people living in rural places to study and, moreover, helps to increase students’ and teachers’ engagement and interest in learning. For the same cause, improvements in educational facilities play an important role in addressing students’ difficulties with access to the school system and in enhancing their results.

Every child deserves the right to safety and to be empowered through education. Street Children work in some of the poorest areas in the world and strives to ensure they go to school and learn. Even though the President of Ghana, Nana Addo has instituted a Free education policy, Surveys indicate a lot is needed to be done in terms of amenities and children’s general needs.

Highlighting the needs of these children, it’s necessary we collectively come to their aid. AfrikRising has four main focus areas thus; protecting children, educating children, empowering families, and supporting children in emergencies.

Providing this assistance helps get Street Children off the streets, away from danger, and into school. AfrikRising is working tirelessly to find safe, family environments for these children, helping them get back to school.

Mitigation of such challenges is why AfrikRising and CEO Reidhead has taken the first step of building a school in Ghana. This project will not only benefit children in Ghana and Africa but will also go a long way to impact the future generation.
