Vision & Mission
Global Givers Action Foundation (GGAF) wants to provide resources to end employment of children in any work that deprives them of their basic education and children rights. (GGAF) vision is a world free from all forms of exploitation and discrimination where everyone has the opportunity to realize their potential. (GGAF) interventions aim to alleviate poverty on in farming villages through economic and social programs focused on preventing and ending grave abuse of children's right.
Global Givers Action Foundation (GGAF) works in poor rural areas of cocoa plantations to increase access of marginalized and vulnerable children to education. We strategically work with local community leaders and teachers to provide better school facilities and strengthen after-school programs and much-needed skills of teachers. (GGAF) is also working with local civil society and government officials to increase access to education for the under-served children—by paying for their school materials and implementing non-formal education school programs.
These efforts have increased the enrollment and retention rates of students in mostly cocoa plantation areas. Global Givers Action Foundationis also working to increase retention rates of students who are lured to cocoa farms to work for free because of lack of food and school resources. In Ghana, (GGAF) has worked to develop academic skills of likely dropouts with our Children Have the Right to Succeed Program.
Children Have the Right to Succeed Program has succeeded in helping children without education and some students by focusing on teachers and community leaders run remedial and extracurricular classes for school children and dropout students. This program has built academic skills of at-risk children by providing them with additional school sessions in cocoa harvesting peak seasons. The additional sessions allow at risk students get more individual attention, increasing their engagement with education. As their academic achievement increase, so too does their likelihood of not going back to be enslaved by cocoa farmers.
Engaging communities in new ways, Global Givers Action Foundation is implementing projects that either incorporate non-traditional teaching methods or operate outside of normal school settings. This type of non-formal child friendly education program is increasingly being utilized to reach out to underrepresented communities in cocoa plantation areas. Global Givers Action Foundation has realized that you must go to the people if children are not coming to school, simply providing more of the same traditional education programs leave many children out of school.
