EduSpots’ innovative and cost effective model puts communities in the driving seat to create and sustain 50 learning spaces in Ghana & Kenya, providing transformative educational activities and resources for 15,000 children and adults. Your support will advance the quality and reach of impact.
Close to 2.6 million people are classed as illiterate in Ghana, which is around 25% of the population over the age of 15 (UNESCO, 2023). Schools have very limited access to books or computers with little to no activities offered to students beyond school hours. Access to pre-primary education is just 38% in rural areas, compared to 90% for urban areas, with teaching standards and access to resources variable. Children are often pulled out of school to help parents with crucial livelihood tasks.
EduSpots works with over 300 community volunteers (Catalysts) to create and sustain 50 community-owned and led learning spaces. Our Catalysts enable students of all ages to have free access to learning resources (including storybooks, phonics resources and teaching aids, textbooks, science equipment and some limited IT equipment) alongside study space and homework support. They also run clubs in creative literacy, early years education, STEM and environmental education and girls' empowerment.
