A central tenet of Child Rights Clubs is to enable children to be active and positive community members. The club at Holy Child School (who can be found on instagram @_childrights_holychild) is a prime example, as they have taken it upon themselves to fundraise for an underresourced school in Cape Coast, to help children to have access to quality education.
Club President Maame explains the project below:
"We are planning a fundraiser for the vacation. The funds that would be raised would be used to support our adopted community by helping the less priviledged there and to support their education.
The fundraisers would be held hopefully at the Marina Mall and Shoprite Osu on the 24th and 26th respectively.
We adopted the Saint Michael School in Cape Coast. We adopted that community because when we took a further view of the community we realized that that school was lacking lots of amenities. Lots of them cannot also pay their fees, even though there are brilliant people in the school, and if we give them that support they need, they can get somewhere."
