Volunteer- Put a smile on a face!

Curious Minds- Ghana has for 16 years worked with young people to advocate the rights and well-being of children and youth. The organization’s work is mainly media driven with a strong emphasis on Capacity Building, Advocacy, and Communication within a well-developed organization focusing on the Local, Regional and National levels.  Curious Minds-Ghana believes in the ability and resourcefulness of young people to meaningfully contribute to issues related to their development.

“Curious Minds Central Region Chapter in Action”

In a bid to continue to ensure Children in deprived communities are supported in their academic work, the organization started an initiative to draw volunteers, mainly from SHS, Universities and Colleges of Education- from around Ghana to be part of the team teaching in these communities; the first move was successful in August 2011-thanks to all who joined in!

EDUCATION! EDUCATION! EDUCATION!

Education

I would start this blog item with a quote: “Educated people- Educate people”- Cecil Ato Kwamena Dadzie (Ghanabakwamena), 2010. Certainly, aside living, education is one of our basic rights to personal and societal well-being; it’s a means for knowledge transmission to generations and it goes a long way to enhance the potential contributions of individuals to national development.

I can’t talk of Education without making reference to MDG 2- Achieving universal primary education. Similarly, MDG 3- Promoting gender equality and empowering women. I believe Education is the best tool or way to reduce poverty, child labor, promote peace and development, empower a female, and even achieve the rest of the MDGs. Agree? Yes, every boy and girl child must be educated, but the quality of education is indeed questionable, esp. ‘public education’. The quality of education determines how sharp the skills and attitudes of people will be in future. The foundation, Early Childhood Care and Development, if not strong may bring down years of hard-work and input by other teachers along the way.

It is sad yet bad to know that around Ghana, over seventy-five (75) schools still hold classes under trees; we can’t let this be-never. Others fortunate to be sheltered lack books, at times teachers, teaching aids and vital learning tools that would make learning attractive, comfortable and easy to understand- these are few of the numerous factors that drive children away from school, aside poverty. Even that is no excuse to starve the brains of your child- basic education is free and compulsory. Teachers will surely reject postings to rural areas if the environment doesn’t look appealing- no electricity, water hard to come by, accommodation and incentives etc.

It is obvious therefore that, I call on us all once again to serve as checks of our society. Secondly, we all make up the ‘government’ and have roles to play in achieving every single goal of the MDGs. Again, the best investment a nation can make is in its children and education- lets build more schools in communities and encourage schooling by all people esp. children, so they can educate others when they grow. At the same time attention must be given to teachers- we need them!
