February 15, 2011

Now that the school is underway, Rescue Aid Foundation and local artisans will work to finish the school over the next year. Global Studio will continue to raise funds, collect donations, and research to provide the best level of education and support possible for this school and future global studio schools.The Kyekyewere school, according to Rescue Aid Foundation, will serve as a symbol of hope for the village, city, and region. Perched on a hill, it is visible to much of the city below and draws attention to the excellence that Ghana strives to achieve in their 2015 Millennium Education Goals.

The goals are summarized by the United Nations Development Programme as follows:

Goal 4: Reduce child mortality
Goal 5: Improve maternal health
Goal 6: Combat HIV/AIDS, malaria and other diseases
Goal 7: Ensure environmental sustainability
Goal 8: Develop a Global Partnership for Development
    Target 2a: Ensure that all boys and girls complete a full course of primary schooling
  • 2.1 Net enrollment ratio in primary education
  • 2.2 Proportion of pupils starting grade 1 who reach last grade of primary
  • 2.3 Literacy rate of 15-24 year-olds, women and men

The organization took this project on with the goal of revolutionizing rural education in Ghana and West Africa, hoping to include advanced tutoring and IT services. This school’s design and programs will serve as a model to all future school initiatives of Rescue Aid Foundation in Ghana, serving as a mode of revolutionizing National Education.
