To improve the skills and competences of teachers so they may properly educate and stimulate personal and educational growth of children in Ekwamkrom,Ghana.
This project is needed so children receive the quality education they deserve. Often, teachers are not properly trained or educated which negatively affects their students. When teachers learn the necessary skills through our training and workshops, students can be approached in a more personal way and will receive the attention they need to increase their opportunities in class.
We will observe current teaching methods of the staff, discuss these methods and introduce other possible teaching methods. We will then discuss and educate the teachers about how to care for young children, as well as how to implement a more personal approach to teaching, and tending to the needs of children with learning or developmental issues. We will inform, advise, support and train the teachers and evaluate the new approaches and way of working together.

From Juli 2011 until December 2011 I worked for the Meet Kate Foundation in Ekwamkrom, Ghana. I learned about the organization from the inside out saw the need of good education in Ekwamkrom. I saw a lot of smart, bright children who are eager to learn, and with this project we can give invest in their future. In Ghana I saw that there is so much more to tell about Africa, than that single story about poverty, civil war and helplessness. Meet Kate wants to show the world the other side of this beautiful continent.
