Non-Governmental Organization, Care for Humanity Initiative Foundation- Ghana (CHIF-Ghana), has out doored some of its initiatives to aid in the improvement of education in rural communities.
Speaking in an exclusive interview on the Morning show Campus Exclusive, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of CHIF-Ghana, Mr. James Asamoah stated that even though government is trying its best to improve the country’s educational system, it has been silent on the improvement of education in rural communities.
This, he said, led to the recruitment of student teachers to aid the Foundation improve education in the rural communities.
“Government is doing a lot to ameliorate education in Ghana but rural education is always not heard. They need more teachers in those areas…they don’t have buildings, they don’t have a lot. So we are recruiting students who are highly inclined when it comes to educating people. We recruit them and take them to those communities to offer help. This year, we are selecting a community and provide them with a school building since we have noticed teachers and infrastructure are the major needs of rural education”
Mr. James Asamoah further indicated that due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the closure of schools in Ghana, the foundation is taking the opportunity to build more infrastructure for the schools in the rural communities.
“This is a Covid era and we will not be able to go there to teach the people because schools have closed. That is the reason we want to go and build a school for them so we are recruiting everyone who is interested in serving humanity”
He finally added that the foundation is open to all stakeholders who wish to volunteer but cannot join due to tight schedules and further urged for their financial supports.
“This year we are recruiting people with expertise, we are going to build so masons will be needed, architects will be needed…If you can’t go with us, your monies can support us. We sometimes feed these children and it’s not easy. So I you are not ready to go with us, you can support one volunteer to go with us”
