Avata is a village of 2000 people with over 300 children who are eager to learn.
And the community members are eager to make their children’s dream a reality. Avata is a largely agricultural community that has no running water and must rely on a shallow hand-dug well. Nevertheless, the community members place great emphasis on the importance of education and overcome numerous obstacles in order to provide a promising future for their children.
Previously, the children of Avata attended class in a makeshift wooden structure and under a mango tree that offered little protection from the elements, and had no furniture or scholastic materials. PoP partnered with the Avata community as well as the organization Disaster Volunteers of Ghana to construct three new classrooms. As one of PoP’s first builds in Ghana, we could not be more excited to promote quality education for all.
