School for Life Ghana, has for the past two decades been providing complementary basic education to out-of-school children in deprived and under-served areas of Ghana. This commitment is in line with SfL’s mission of working to strengthen civil society’s role of improving access to relevant quality basic education by functioning as lead organization in delivering, demonstrating and advocating for mother-tongue based complementary basic education in underserved areas of Ghana. School for Life strives to be a center of excellence that inspire breakthroughs in education and provide technical support to civil society and education stakeholders.
School for Life has a superior track record of providing excellent complementary basic education in mother-tongue for out-of-school children. This has endowed the organization with enormous experiences, expertise and knowledge of challenges of basic education in Ghana and has therefore positioned the organization in a better place to present alternative ways of surmounting the challenges of basic education and to support the nation’s efforts at achieving universal basic education by 2015.
The learning and Development Center (LDC) was therefore established in 2012 to serve as a resource center that provides technical support to education stakeholders. The LDC has since been operational and has provided technical support to: IPA in the TCAI project, TZEDEK in piloting the EQUIP project, ACDEP and a number of private basic schools in Tamale.
As one of the ways of extending the services of the LDC to other parts of Ghana, a workshop was organized in the Upper East Region to advertise the LDC, the services available, who can access services and how to access the services. The workshop was very successful. Participants who were drawn from the Ghana Education Service, the mission education units, NGOs, CBOs, CSOs and private institutions were happy to learn of a center like the LDC that can support them in their efforts to providing quality education. A number of the private institutions pledged to contact the LDC to access services especially in the area of training teaching staff to improve quality of teaching and learning.
The LDC exist to provide services and technical support to education institutions, NGOs, CBOs, CSOs and all education stakeholders to better quality of education in Ghana. You can contact the LDC at firstname.lastname@example.org or visit the School for Life website (www.schoolforlifegh.org) for more information. Join us, lets partner to make education a more viable and prosperous venture for the future generations.
