School fees, materials, child labor, and long commutes to school are some of the main barriers preventing underprivileged Ghanaian children from going to school. One of TANF’s key projects is to build a school for underprivileged children in Accra, Ghana, offering them sponsored access to education and a safe environment to thrive.
School fees, materials, child labor and long commutes to school are some of the main barriers preventing underprivileged Ghanaian children from going to school.
TANF aims to address the barriers keeping kids out of school, by building its own school. TANF will expand the schooling capacity, accommodating 400 children, sponsoring tuition fees to underprivileged kids, providing students with learning materials, free school transport, extracurricular activities and workshops around the importance of education.
Our school project educates 400 children each term. Once the school is in operation it will be self-sustaining and will contribute towards the construction of subsequent schools in other Ghanaian regions. Due to the domino effect this first TANF school creates, we believe, the long-term impact will be enormous.
