Aim and Goal of the Project:

Renovating existing primary schools and establishing vocational training centres especially in villages and remote areas in Africa south of the Sahara.

 

Problem Statement

Access to primary education is one of the Millennium Development Goals. CLEAN-AFRICA supports the people in rural areas of sub-saharan Africa and their children to obtain basic education and vocational training. There is a lack of teaching materials, trained teachers, and thus are less than 10% of the children go beyond the elementary schools. Primary education is basic and important, and should be immensely supported, if we are to avert mass movement of youths to towns.The parents in rural areas have low or no income at all to support the education of theier children, thus external support is needed to boost the little government subsidies available. There is a lack of teaching materials, trained teachers, and thus are less than 10% of the children go beyond the elementary schools.

 

 

Connection with other Projects:

Sustainable poverty alleviation.

 

What makes this Project so important?

Knowledge is Power. Without education, development is unimaginable.

 

Project Difficulties

Besides the long way children have to take to school, the parents must be convinced of the necessity of basic education for their children.

 

Project Risks

Children flooding the schools with insufficient number of classrooms.

 

Project costs

32000 Euros can raise a 3 classroom building using environmental friendly materials.

 

The Project is not intended for:

Supporting individual children. Intended is a community asset and basic service. CLEAN-AFRICA does not necessarily build new schools, we support the existing struggling schools in rural communities, for these do have beneficiaries that can gurantee project sustainability.

The environmental Problems of the 21st Century

 

More than 50% of the environmental problems are caused by deforestation / desertification and unavailability of portable water. Thus as CLEAN-AFRICA’s strategy, its embarking on environmental awareness campaigns to help salvage the situation by using tomorrow’s Leaders (the Youth).

 

 

Possibilities:

According to the UN Report of the Secretary-General in March 2005, he stated: “The scale and scope of progress made by countries in every region of the world has shown that, over a very short time, poverty and maternal and infant mortality can be dramatically reduced, while education, gender equality and other aspects of development can be dramatically advanced. The unprecedented combination of resources and technology at our disposal today means that we are truly the first generation with the tools, the knowledge and the resources to meet the commitment, given by all States in the Millennium Declaration, “to making the right to development a reality for everyone and to freeing the entire human race from want”. Civil society organizations have a critical role to play in driving this implementation process forward to “make poverty history”. Not only is civil society an indispensable partner in delivering services to the poor at the scope required by the Millennium Development Goals but it can also catalyse action within countries on pressing development concerns, mobilizing broad-based movements and creating grass-roots pressure to hold leaders accountable for their commitments.”

In 1992 in Rio de Janeiro, “Sustainable Development” became an international political programme. Between 2005 and 2014, a worldwide education decade was planned to convey the content and strategy of this 21st century Project. The UN made models and goals for the year 2015. Environmental protection is to become a fixture in member states national politics alongside concrete social improvements. These include: universal primary education, a reduction of child mortality by two thirds, the reduction of the number of people with a daily income of the less than a dollar per day by half and the reduction of the proportion of people with no access to clean water by half.

 

Making a Start….

Everything should be geared towards minimizing future environmental problems or avoiding them beforehand. If we can achieve this, mankind can survive longer.

No matter how committed any single country may be it may not be able to solve today’s environmental problems which don’t consider borderlines, if at all not in the short run. Yet we can make a start and convey this message the message. Environmental protection is an interesting task and challenge to all of us. It is in our own interests and those of our children and of the generations to come.

Hence as part of the CLEAN-AFRICA’s focus, a massive environmental educational campaign through the CLEAN-Clubs Program in Africa. In Ghana, for example, the CLEAN-Clubs program has a 3 year project with a target to establish 50 environmental clubs in the secondary and tertiary institutions. These clubs would embark on environmental education and training (e.g. Issues of climatic change, desertification, afforestation, waste separation, hygiene, etc) and also plant and maintain 100 thousand trees across the country.

Aim and Goal of the Project:

Construction of clinics and equipping community health centers with the necessary tools especially in remote areas of Africa south of the Sahara. With this we hope to reduce the child mortality rate, and support mother-child survival during delivery.

 

 

Situation at Hand

The people in rural parts of most African countries depend on small clinics with under-equipped staff. Public large hospitals are usually located many kilometers away and linked by very poor infrastructure. For critical cases, which need to take the long route to the hospital, because the poor means of transport (mostly by bicycle) patients end up dying on the way! There is a need for quick access to well-staffed and equipped hospital/clinics especially for the mothers, children and elderly.

Connection with other Projects

Sustainable poverty alleviation.

 

What makes this Project so important?

Life revolves around health. Only healthy people can participate in development.

 

Project Difficulties

Apart from bad roads especially upcountry, electricity supply can be a huge hinderance in villages. The Projects must have the ability to run on solar.

 

Project Risks

Ensuring availability of qualified personnel.

 

Investment needed

32000 Euros can build a health center. Hospital gadgets can be acquired second hand.

 

Goal of the project is not

Favouring Individual human beings. It is a community basic asset.
