Our Mission and Vision
Our mission is to provide free education and learning materials to the disadvantaged girls and boys in rural areas of Ghana to enable them to complete primary and secondary education.
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.
Our vision is that every girl and boy deserves quality education, regardless of their 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 thereby, contributing to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal to ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all.
- Increase the numbers of children attending and completing their schooling in rural Ghana by funding uniforms, desks and establishing hygienic toilets.
- Recruit local and international volunteers to support schools’ educational programs and lift rural children out of poverty and disadvantage.
- Call for donations of books, and make them available through rural schools to assist children in establishing life-long learning.
- Deliver the mission and vision of Child Survival Aid Ghana and ensure its reputation through the high standard contributions of its Board, Secretariat and volunteers.

A better future through education.
Children are the faces of the future, and their education is one of the most critical factors to help a community rise above poverty.
CSAG is committed to raising the level of education and literacy in rural communities in Ghana and to helping the disadvantaged children realize their full potential. CSAG seeks to ensure quality education for children in order to create an equal opportunity for all children to participate in, and benefit from Ghana’s economic growth. This effort will contribute to Sustainable Development Goals worldwide.
Our combined initiative and support will make all the difference in the life and future of rural children for whom a quality education is the only ladder that could help them climb out of the vicious circle of poverty.
