“Reaching Out To Children Missing Out -Of -School”


“Reaching Out To Children Missing Out -Of -School”


Ghana has been a regional leader in the delivery of Education for All, reaching the education Millennium Development Goals well ahead of the 2015 deadline. As of 2011, Ghana had an 84% Net Enrolment Rate in basic school and had reached gender parity in classrooms.
However, about 823,500 children of primary school age are still not enrolled in primary school and one out of four children in the kindergarten age range (from four to five years of age) are not in pre-school. Girls from northern Ghana average only four years of education, three years less than the national average. And 20% of children with physical disabilities are not attending school, according to the 2010 national census.

QUALITY EDUCATION

Many students in Ghana do not benefit from a quality education. Often, the school environment is not conducive to learning: classes are overcrowded, water and sanitation facilities are lacking and trained teachers and school books are in short supply. The poor quality of education is reflected in students’ results. Only 16% of grade six students are proficient in mathematics and only 35% proficient in English, according to the 2011 National Education Assessment.
Millennium Child Support Group is working with the Ghana Education Service to transform all schools in the 10 most deprived districts of Ghana into Child-Friendly Schools.
Millennium Child Excellence Award Scheme.
Millennium Child Support Group is dedicated to improving the lives of underprivileged and disadvantaged children in the deprived communities to reach their full potential and also to augment the government effort in providing good quality education

Millennium Child Excellence Award Scheme was instituted to offer assistance to brilliant but needy school children to realize their dreams of better education. It is a financial award to give recognition to
children with exceptional abilities and who have achieved outstanding performance in our standardized tests in English, Mathematics, Science and ICT education.

It is estimated that, more than 823,500 children of school going age in Ghana are still out of school. Most of these children come from poor families. Majority of these children are brilliant and talented but are excluded from the formal educational system for various reasons including non-availability of funds to pay fees, lack of educational materials, the remote nature of their communities, as well as unfavorable socio-economic and cultural factors.
In addition, economically challenged and apparently intellectually weak pupils, with poor parental backgrounds are sometimes not attracted to or retained in the formal school system. These children constitute a critical mass, whose continuous exclusion from the school system would make it difficult for the Ghana government to achieve Education for All or Universal Primary Completion as stipulated in the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).
At the various levels of education in Ghana brilliant but needy students have been identified. Most of these children are unable to pay their school fees, some as low as three dollars a term. Most of such children end up dropping out of school, shutting their dreams of a better life in future. Those who are fortunate to make it through the senior high level with good grades are also unable to buy university entrance forms let alone pay their admission fees, should they gain admission.
In view of this most of these brilliant students have turned to hawking on the main streets of the country to make a living. Others too have become criminals robbing people at gun point as well as engaging in fraudulent activities. This is costing the country a great deal as a vital human resource is being wasted.

Why this funds?
As part of our contribution to national and global development as non- profit organization, we have introduced this award scheme to address the educational problems of brilliant but needy children in our rural communities. As the adage goes, “education is the key to development’ and contributes a greater proportion to national and global development. For a country’s economy to growth steadfastly depends on education..

We aim to:
i. To focus on the quality education for needy but brilliant children out of school and increase community demand for it.
ii. To reduce the burden of parents to pay fees and encourage students to study hard.
iii. To gives opportunity to students that are not performing in classroom to do their best.
iv. To challenge teachers to improving their teachings and ensure good performance of their students.
v. To enable youth to become responsible citizens and agents of change

Millennium Child Support Group is bringing real and lasting change to children living in poverty. We invest in children to reach their full potential and provide them with the opportunity to grow up healthy, educated and prepared to succeed and contribute to society. Our goal is to truly affect lives of impoverished children, their families and communities through our programs to relieve the burdens these people face and improve their quality of life. Our vision is that every child graduates from our program as a healthy, educated, self-reliant adult with the ability and drive to break from poverty while improving their own communities and the society at large.
