Girl Power Project

Pen to Paper Ghana have now partnered with a small UK NGO called Porridge and Pens Ghana. With similar aims in the education field, we were thrilled to facilitate the running of their Girl Power project. In Ghana, there are a lot of costs involved with school, and therefore families often struggle to pay for their child’s school fees, school lunches, school equipment and exam entries. This has meant that only 37% of children complete senior school education and girls’ participation is substantially lower than boys. Only 3% of young people aged 18-21 are in higher education, such as university or vocational schools and only 30% of students enrolling onto higher education courses are female.
