Seed of Hope Foundation, a non-governmental organisation (NGO) has been launched to support child education and wellbeing in the Sissala East and Sissala West Districts of the Upper Wes Region. The organization has set out a mission to extend educational support to rural children and expose them to modern technology in their learning environment.
This would help realize Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 4. SDG 4 aims to ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all. The NGO has targeted 1289 students in the enclave for digital learning in a mobile learning project.
Speaking during the launch, the Chief Executive Officer of Seed of Hope Foundation, Madam Hallu Fatimah Alhassan said that “as Seed of Hope Foundation, we want to be known for leading in child support in the education sector in the Sissala area to achieve excellent learning outcomes.”
She further indicated that Seed of Hope Foundation currently focuses on providing educational resources to rural children, exposing children to technology by way of introducing them to digital learning opportunities as the organization provides tablets that are connected to the internet for learning.
Madam Alhassan as said, “we as well identify needy children and offer them special support to speed up their academic progress in school.”
Even before the official launch of the NGO, 70 students benefited from the organization last year. 100 students were also supported with school uniforms, sandals, books, pens, and pencils each during the launch.
She, therefore, urged that as the Seed of Hope Foundation plays a key role in supporting children, parents should not fold their arms but should as well do what they can to help their children to succeed.
