Women's education in Ghana - Charlotte's story
 
03:05
DFID's education programme support in Ghana has boosted girls enrolment in primary schools and trained thousands of women teachers in areas that most need them. In Africa, children are 40% more likely to live beyond the age of 5 if their mothers have spent at least five years in education and in India, it is estimated that a 10% increase in the ratio of female to male workers would mean an 8% increase in GDP.

It is estimated that one in five of the world's school-aged girls do not have access to education. But one woman, Ann Cotton, has helped more than three million children, mainly girls, get an education in rural and impoverished areas of sub-Saharan Africa. She has been awarded a prestigious award for her work at the annual World Innovation Summit for Education, or WISE in Doha, Qatar. The award not only give recognition to Cotton's charity, but also a recognition of the importance of women's education. Al Jazeera's Erica Wood reports.

Ann Cotton receives WISE Prize for girls' education in rural Africa
 
05:30
Ann Cotton, Founder and President of Camfed, has been awarded the 2014 WISE Prize for Education. The Prize was presented by Her Highness Sheikha Moza bint Nasser, Chairperson of Qatar Foundation, at the sixth World Innovation Summit for Education (WISE) in Doha, Qatar on 4 November 2014. The WISE Prize for Education is the first distinction of its kind to recognise an individual or a team of up to six people for an outstanding, world-class contribution to education. The WISE Prize for Education is enhancing the status of education by giving it similar prestige to other areas for which international prizes exist, such as literature, peace, and economics. The WISE Prize for Education Laureates are inspiring role models for all those concerned with building the future of education as the foundation for a more secure, prosperous, and sustainable world. It was in 1993 when Ann Cotton founded the nonprofit organisation Camfed after returning home from a trip to western Zimbabwe. She realised that the biggest obstacle to girls' education was being trapped in a vicious circle of poverty. This realisation caused her to take action. Since then, she has continously worked to reverse the cycle of poverty and inequality by supporting girls through school, and empowering young women to become leaders of change. By now, Camfed’s programmes are implemented across 5085 partner schools in 115 rural districts of Zimbabwe, Zambia, Ghana, Tanzania and Malawi and are owned and run by the communities. Over time, the establishment of an alumni network of educated young women, named CAMA, has contributed to the success story: the network is the driving force behind Camfed, one that unlocks the potential of girls and young women by educating and mentoring them. Camfed has managed to create an unparalleled infrastructure of partnerships, systems, community experts, and education activists. As Ann Cotton puts it: “Just imagine one million girls in Africa, all of whom are from a background of rural poverty; all of whom understand the anxiety and the frustrations of poverty. Just imagine them working in the education and health systems, in politics, in journalism, in law, in engineering, in science – just imagine the power of what they can do to transform our world.” For more information on Camfed's work, take a look at the NGO's web page: https://camfed.org/latest-news/camfed-founder-wins-global-prize/ SUBSCRIBE to get more videos from WISE: http://www.youtube.com/WISEQatar?sub_confirmation=1 World Innovation Summit for Education (WISE) is an international, multi-sectoral and action-oriented platform for innovation in education that connects innovators, nurtures new ideas, and recognizes and supports successful initiatives that are helping revitalize education.

Health and Education in Africa: the Tarkwa Breman Model School for Girls and Community Clinic
 
02:55
Shadrack Frimpong has vowed to challenge the notion that investing in girls’ education isn’t worthwhile. As a President’s Engagement Prize-winner, Frimpong hopes to make a difference for the girls and families of Tarkwa Breman, the rural Ghanaian village where he grew up. His prize money will go toward the construction of a girls’ school and a medical clinic. Frimpong, a biology major in the College of Arts & Sciences with extensive global health coursework, has witnessed friends and family members in Tarkwa Breman suffer from HIV/AIDS, hepatitis B, and other diseases—a situation compounded by the village’s lack of accessible health care. He also realized that the failure to provide an education to girls leads them down a path that too often ends a sexually transmitted disease or high-risk adolescent pregnancy, as was the case with one of Frimpong’s childhood friends. “My friend’s situation showed me how health and education are inextricably linked,” Frimpong says. Frimpong’s plans are comprehensive: With the support of his parents, he met with his village’s chief, who arranged for the donation of 100 acres of land where the facilities will be built. A portion of that land will be turned into a farm on which students’ families will work, once a week, in exchange for a free education for their daughters. Revenues from the cocoa crops will help pay for the school’s maintenance costs. He is working with the Ghanaian ministries of Health and Education to supply teachers and doctors to staff the school, which is planned to accommodate 200 students, and clinic, slated to include consultation rooms, a pharmacy, a dressing/injection room, a laboratory, a delivery room, and an on-call room. Frimpong will be in Tarkwa Breman this summer to oversee plans for the facility. Penn architecture students, guided by Richard Wesley of the School of Design, will also be traveling there to survey the land and design the building, which is expected to open in the summer of 2016. Then, starting the following fall, Frimpong plans to go back and forth between Ghana and the U.S. while he attends medical school, pursuing joint degrees in medicine and health policy.

Value of Education for African children 4K

African Education, Children Education Africa, Discovery Education Africa, Education Africa Travel Vlog 4K https://goo.gl/HzFhA4 In 2000, the United Nations adopted the Millennium Development Goals, a set of development goals for the year 2015. The second of them was to achieve Universal Primary Education, more specifically, “to ensure that by 2015, children everywhere, boys and girls alike will be able to complete a full course of primary schooling.” That same year, the World Education Forum met in Dakar, Senegal, and adopted the Dakar Framework for Action reaffirming the commitment to achieving Education for All by the year 2015. At the time, according to UNESCO, only 57% of African children were enrolled in primary schools, the lowest enrollment rate of any region surveyed. The report also showed marked gender inequalities: in almost all countries enrollment of boys far outpaced that of girls. Steps such as the abolition of school fees, investments in teaching infrastructure and resources, and school meals from the World Food Programme helped drive enrollment up by millions. Yet despite the significant progress of many countries, the world fell short of meeting its goal of UPE. In sub-Saharan Africa as of 2013, only about 79% of primary school-age children were enrolled in school.59 million children of primary-school age were out of school, and enrollment of girls continued to lag behind that of boys. Following the expiration of the MDGs in 2015, the UN adopted a set of Sustainable Development Goals for the year 2030. The fourth goal addressed education, with the stated aim to “ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all.” The World Education Forum also convened in Incheon, Korea to discuss the implementation of this goal, and adopted the Incheon Declaration for Education 2030. It remains to be seen what effect the latest measures have on the state of education participation. Challenges ========== Language barriers Due to high linguistic diversity, the legacy of colonialism and the need for knowledge of international languages such as English and French in employment and higher education, most schooling in Africa takes places in languages that teachers and pupils do not speak natively, and in some cases simply do not understand. There is considerable evidence that pupils schooled in a second language achieve poorer results than those schooled in their mother tongue, as lack of proficiency in the second language impairs understanding and encourages ineffective rote learning. Although UNESCO have recommended since the 1950s that children be taught early literacy in their mother tongue, progressing later to other languages, not all African countries implement this effectively. Even where the earliest grades are taught in the mother tongue, pupils are typically forced to switch to languages such as English and French before acquiring proficiency in these languages. Lack of proper facilities and educators Another reason for the low education rates in Africa is the lack of proper schooling facilities and unequal opportunity for education across countries. Many schools across Africa find it hard to employ teachers due to the low pay and lack of suitable people. This is particularly true for schools in remote areas. Most people who manage to receive education would prefer to move to big cities or even overseas where more opportunities and higher pay await. Thus, there will be an overly large class sizes and high average number of students per teacher in a school. Moreover, the teachers are usually those unqualified with few teaching aids and poor textbook provision. Due to this, children attending schools in rural areas usually attain poorer results in standardised tests compared to their urban counterparts. This can be seen in the reports given by the Northern and Eastern Africa Consortium for Monitoring Educational Quality (SACMEQ). Those taking the tests in rural areas score much lower than those in small towns and big cities. This shows a lack of equal education opportunity given to children from different parts of the same country. With teachers being less qualified than others in urban areas the teaching to learning environment takes an effect amongst the students. In one instance teachers took the same test as their students and three fourths of them had failed. In addition, those that do not receive the same education to those in the bigger cities have trouble even after graduation with reading, writing, and doing math.Students who do not attain the same equal education to those in urban environments do not achieve the same outcome in establishing success with a career. With education being a major concern towards achieving a career and establishing a future, Africa needs to be aware that equal education needs to be established within all schools throughout the countries.
