We work with children living in rural and urban extreme poverty to improve their access to a quality education, particularly focusing on marginalised groups including girls, orphans and children with disabilities.
A quality education is vital to increasing children’s chances of achieving qualifications and improving their earning opportunities. Our involvement ranges from running teacher training courses to improving school infrastructure. We consult children to find out what inhibits their access to good education – such as child labour – and develop projects to help them overcome obstacles.
Running activities like after-school clubs, holiday programmes and children’s assemblies underpins the core skills children learn at school and reduces the risk of dropping out. These activities also provide opportunities to raise children’s awareness of their right to education, and help them advocate for their own education.
CASE, our education programme in Ghana, supported by the UK Government's Department for International Development, is giving 1,500 children the chance of a more secure future.
