Picture Story: ActionAid Hellas volunteers assist Koru to complete Teacher's Quarters

Located in the Kadjebi District in the Volta Region of Ghana, the Koru community is one of ActionAid Ghana’s sponsored communities.

With a population of about 700, Koru is located in a remote part of the district and lacks access to some basic utilities such as electricity. However, the community has one thing.

The Koru community has a school and provides education to children from three other communities. However, its remoteness and lack of basic amenities have been affecting access to education for children from Koru and its surrounding communities, with teachers neglecting the community or uninterested in being posted to the community to teach.

The community, following Human Rights-Based Approach (HRBA) training from ActionAid Ghana and support from its Parent-Teacher Association/School Management Committee (PTA/SMC) has constructed a Teachers' Quarters to attract teachers to the community and promote access to education for their children.

The community’s proactiveness and initiative attracted the attention of sponsors and volunteers from ActionAid Greece. 

From Monday, 31st July, 2017 to Friday, 4th August, 2017, a 37-member volunteer group from Greece and Cyprus joined members of the Koru community to complete their Teacher’s Quarters.
