Reading Today Shapes The Future
Many students in Ghana have no access to reading material. They depend solely on teachers notes. Due to the struggle and pressure in studies, many students end up dropping out of school. According to Researchers from the Consortium for Research on Education Access in Ghana, school drop-out rate is up 20% at primary level, and 45% at Junior High School Level. Recent survey shows that adult literacy rate in Ghana is 65% , with 71.7% males and 58.3% females according to the national statistics. Elite Providers libraries/reading programs in the Ghanaian communities assist in quenching the thirst of reading and help reduce the school drop-out rate of Ghanaian children.
In Ghana, we are dedicated to serve over 3 million children living in the Nzema communities located in the Western part of Ghana, (Jomoro, EllembelLe, and Nzema East Districts). We ensure that each child living in these communities is geared towards quality and aggressive reading, living a testament to the warmth and spirit of the greatest Ghanaian leader Dr. Kwame Nkruma.
Nzema Libraries Project
"Nzema Libraries Project” was initiated by fellow Nzemas with a common goal to give back to the Nzema Communities in Ghana. The project is dedicated in opening free Libraries and Reading Centers in all Nzema communities in Jomoro, Ellembelle, and Nzema East Districts to provide basic educational materials essential for academic achievements. The purpose of Nzema Libraries Project is to help school age children who do not have access to basic reading materials such as reading books, text books, e-books, and computers have access to them for a lifelong academic success.
The main goal of the project is to boost reading in all parts of Nzema to motivate, inspire, and instill the love of reading in the children of Nzema-land. We are dedicated in creating a warm open environment where students feel safe enough to read, ask questions, explore, and seek answers. We challenge every student to surpass his/her personal reading abilities for a better future. We are particularly proud of the learning diversity and opportunities to celebrate those characteristics that makes Nzema Libraries Project different.
We would like to encourage everyone in Ghana and around the world to assist in fostering Nzema libraries Project and to become the change we perceive in our Mother-Land Ghana. We encourage the support of all Ghanaians, especially Nzemas in making a difference in the lives of children across the Nzema communities in Ghana.
The Nzema libraries project will provide children a window into the world around them, and help them do better in all school subjects. Most importantly, the reading program will not only help the children to become better students, but better people in our communities. Through Elite Providers reading program, children will learn from the brightest people whenever they choose.
