Project implementation

Kokrobite is a fishing community to the west of the Greater Accra region. There is a lack of education there, with the greater part of the community depending on fishing for their livelihood. This situation is not reliable and does not guarantee an adequate income. Many of the children in Kokrobite do not attend school due to the cost of uniforms, shoes, books, and daily food. Additionally, parents are reluctant to send their children to school if there is an opportunity for them to do something that will help to generate income for the family.

As part of the curriculum, one of the subjects taught is Information and Communication Technology (ICT). However, more than 85% of public schools in Ghana teach ICT without computer devices and without electricity in the classrooms. The same situation is in the Kokrobite Government School. Responding to this lack of basic, practical IT education, our NGO partner on the ground, Grow Ghana Initiative, aims to build a fully equipped IT classroom to give the community real-life digital skills. The computer classroom will be used by the 40 students from the school during work days, and by students from surrounding settlements during weekends
