About The Cause
The Prince and Princess Academy Building Project Team, united globally for the shared vision of providing an academic environment in Tamale, Ghana, that is affordable for lower-class constituents who otherwise are unable to send their children to schools due to excessive education fees. The intent of this project is to create a six-class building to educate and develop the prospective leaders of this brilliant country. The academy us currently working on the structure of the building through pipeline creation and the molding of blocks. This campaign will go directly to providing resources and equipment for this process, with 1 truck load of sea-sand and 10 bags of cement.
Education is said to be the channel through which countries develop. The essence of education in this era of globalization and international development cannot be over emphasized. If education is so important in the life of a human being, then why it is that most young people in Ghana and especially Tamale-Kunyavilla in the northern region of Ghana do not have full access to quality education. Notwithstanding the fact that the constitution of the Republic of Ghana demands Government to provide “Free Compulsory Basic Education (FCUBE)”, little has been done by successive Governments to achieve this constitutional mandate. It is against this background that we thought of setting up a very low cost alternative to providing quality basic education for the deprived community called “Kunyavilla” and its environs. Kunyavilla is located in the Tamale north constituency in Ghana. Access to basic education in this area is very hard for most parents due to high school fees. Research conducted by most civil society groups indicates that the people are willing to send their youths to school but are put off by the exorbitant fees charged by the good schools in the Metropolis. The construction of this six class room block and a library will therefore be aimed at bridging this gap by providing quality education.
Every contribution brings the academy closer to achieving an environment where a child is not denied his or her future due to high fees.
