our mission and vision
Child Survival Aid Ghana provides free education and learning materials to disadvantaged
girls and boys in rural areas of Ghana to enable them to complete primary and secondary
schooling. We connect schools with volunteer educators because we know that the largest
impact on educational outcomes is made when learning materials for children are combined
with teacher training and practice.
Child Survival Aid Ghana believes that every girl and boy deserves an education, regardless of where
they live or their family background. We believe all children can lift themselves out of poverty through
the power of education. We aim to eliminate the disparity in educational outcomes between rural and
urban children in Ghana and contribute to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal to ensure
inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all.

In the rural areas of Ghana in 2020, only 65% of children finished primary school and 22% finished secondary school. But the rate of school completion is even worse for children in the poorest families. Only 52% of children in the poorest families finished primary school and just 9% finished secondary school, compared to 86% of the richest children finishing primary school and 71% finishing secondary school.
We work towards long-term solutions rather than quick fixes. Where we work: Child Survival Aid Ghana is currently working in North Tongu district in Volta Region of Ghana
