We consider education a fundamental human right and a core element of our work in Ghana, because it enables people to access and enjoy other rights. This is why we work with excluded groups and stakeholders in education to challenge the commoditisation of education, democratise the learning process so that all children have free access to quality education and ensure that the government fully assumes its obligations to provide a quality basic education to all.
Our vision for education extends to working with government to form partnerships across society to ensure quality early childhood education and adult learning that is linked to social change.
Within this area, we aim to:
- increase citizens’ participation in forming and managing education policy
- promote access to education as a right
- support efforts for sufficient resources to the education sector
- support efforts to increase access to education and retention in school for vulnerable children and secure their rights
