Vocational summer classes

The MKDQMA  used to organize summer school for the children of Odumase-Krobo during the summer recess period. The program used to last five weeks, which meant that parents and other caregivers could freely continue their income-generating activities as their children were being taken care of.

Besides education, we also provided the children with breakfast and lunch throughout the whole program. Teachers from the area were participating in the program voluntarily (while we provided them with meals and transport allowances) and they themselves benefitted as they were given certificates for their participation from the Ghana AIDS Commission.

The program was very popular and successful, however, due to lack of funding, we could not continue this program after 2008.
