According to the Founder, Ms. Dorcas Aba Annan, the Regional Educational Tour Donation is a new project which will be implemented by visiting some selected deprived community schools in some selected regions among the ten regions of the country and support them with educational materials as well as empowering them to embrace girl-child education in some of the communities who deprive the young girls their right to education.

“The aim of this project is to promote education in the rural communities by motivating and empowering them to become great leaders and also sharing educational materials to them. The schools selected to help under this project are dire need of educational materials as most of the young girls in such schools end up having contact with older men for money to purchase some books or pens; hence, resulting in teenage pregnancy and other sexual assult ”, Ms. Annan added.

She stressed that, even though the government entities are putting all mechanisms in place to promote the educational sector espercially at the rural communities, it is also the responsibility of the civil society organisation and non-governmental organisations to also contribute their quota in assisting to build the educational sector with educational materials, renovations and mentoring the young ones.
