Arlokea x The Komenda Project
We collaborated with Arlokea from April 5th to May 5th, 2021 to fundraise for school kits provided to 100 children and 30 teachers at St. Michael's & All Angels Anglican Primary School in Komenda, Ghana to support in providing quality education. Arlokea was able to raise $560 through a Spring Give Back Campaign to be used towards a donation drive to provide free school kits to students and teachers. We hope to create more impact in the future through this collaboration.
Why is a donation drive important?
Upon speaking with students and teachers regarding the issues faced when it came to receiving a quality education, the common ground was the inability to afford basic school supplies such as textbooks, notebooks, and stationery. Although students are able to make it to school, they, however, are unable to complete assignments or participate properly in class due to a lack of school supplies. This has resulted in low literacy levels and poor academic performance.
What is in a school kit?
Each child receives a school kit that includes pencils, erasers, storybooks, pens, exercise books, notebooks, a mathematical set, and a ruler. Teachers receive chalks, notebooks, and pens. You can support our donation drive by clicking here.
