The principle project for 2020 in Senya Beraku for our organisation Ghana4You is to create an clean-water-project. In the light of the 2020-health crisis of COVID19, it seems more important than ever to have clean and fluid water.
So, we want to drill a borehole, install a pump and a treatning system to get potable water. It would be very nice if we can upgrade this project with fluid water for the sanitation in the school.
Nowadays in Belgium we are busy to fundraise the money for this project; Sammy Koja Bekoe and some employees of NGO Maxim Nyansa (John, Stanley,...) are busy to write a proposal and to find out the best way to fix this project.
On friday 20th of March 2020 we realised our first realy project in the Shammah Jehovah School Complex! We are so happy that all our efforts are finally have results in real in Ghana. A fantastic ICT-room for the kids and teachers of the school.
Some students show their appreciations in a short movie.
Support of the educational system
We try to restore school buildings, computer infrastructure, to finance school fees for children whose partens lack financial means, to improve quality of education.
Health care and prevention
Improving school infrastructure may have an immediate effect on health care prevention of the children. (filters for rainwater, more hygienic sanitary accommodation...) Counseling, treatment of wounds, health screenings... as well for children as for teachers and parents...
Stimulate practice of sport and games
Sport brings people together and improves health. Children learn a lot about how to behave while practising sports and playing games.
Searching for lasting employment
For children who wnat to do high school, but their parents haven't got the money; for children who want to learn a job, we could search possibilities or create new openings (say: maintenance of a guesthouse, keep a market, catering, farmhouse,...)
With Ghana4You we always follow the 17 lasting sustainable development goals of the United Nations 2030!
This is our story
Following our adventure in July 2019, where we have voluntarily helped in the Shammah Jehovah School in Seny Beraku, we want to start a sustainable project there. We want to create employment to the inhabitant population by opening a guesthouse. This initiative has to pay its way for 2 years and even more: generate income to open various projects fitting in our goals.
