what major reasons do account for school drop out in this locality? what measures so far has been done to eradicate the situation,please brief us.
In my locality, there are a number of reasons that do account for it. you have, poverty, preference of a boy to girl child to school, distance to study areas, lack of school material, hunger. we do have project that we offer free education to girl child at the primary level, and for the boys a 50 percent reduction in the school fees, it has now increased the number of children who are of school going age and are going to school. But we still face a problem with the Mbororo community who prefer their children to the cow grazing culture than education. we have now embarked on Individual counseling with the community, still looking and checking how it will go. but we still need capacity building
Phase 1 -development of a realistic project plan for establishing an ICT training center including project budget.
May be you also need to have community meetings where a facilitator can elaborate more on the importance and value of education. Young people should really be encouraged to attend School
sensitization should be well done, if the community is involve, it will not be a problem to start. use the participatory rural appraisal approach.
In my village there's different reasons.
Lack of enough teachers, Poverty( young boys and girls engage for the different businesses,car wash,and bagging. both parents to die with HIV/AIDS or any other diseases and causes them for the orphanage, Lack of school materials, uniforms.
we are lunching the project ''motivating school drop out back to school on 27th sept''.
children will be educated on the importance of education.Also we will train them on how to choose their carreer.we are looking forward to sponsoring needy children ,orphans and street children
How are you moving on with your Project?
Thanks Ben. Tough but we exist. We thank God for every step we take.
in my community there are a number of school drop out is high due to
1.high unemployment rate due to this many parent are unable to cater for their wards educational needs hence leading to numbers students dropping out of school.i think if parent are given small amount of money to engage and train them in petty trading can help reduce the rate of school drop out in Elmina
2.Early money from fishing is another issue.since Elmina is a fishing community most of the children tend to drop out of school in other to engage in the primitive method of fishing in other to get quick money for their needs.
3.street children.most children in Elmina do not have parent catering for them due to the fact that most teenager give birth when they are not prepared to cater for them hence living the child to struggle to make ends meat.
4.orphans. most children looses their parents at the early stage in life hence they had to struggle in life to make ends meat so this children tend to drop out of school early when the see they cannot afford the education
