Liebe Freunde,
dieses Projekt meiner Tochter ist im Aufbau und wird nach und nach ausgebaut. Die Infos werden auch noch ins Deutsche übersetzt und ergänzt.
Lieben Dank für's liken und teilen, damit sich diese ausgebeuteten Kinder eine bessere Zukunft aufbauen können, indem sie im Rahmen ihrer Möglichkeiten gefördert werden können.


The term is used to describe the women who engage in carrying of heavy luggages and goods, mostly on a head pan, on their head for a fee, in market centers .‘Kayayoo.’ This term takes its origin from both the Hausa and Ga language- ‘Kaya’ meaning ‘luggage’ or ‘load’ in the Hausa language and ‘Yoo’ meaning ‘woman’ in the Ga language.
These young children are commonly engaged in carrying of heavy luggages and goods, mostly on a head pan, on their head for a fee, in market centres.

One of the biggest problem being faced by these Kayayoo is their inability to get a high paying job due to their limited or no educational background and skillset. Additionally, majority of these girls are lured into early marriages or sexually exploited by multiple male partners who either physically abuse them or abscond when they become pregnant.

In order to build the capacity of these Kayayoo, it is important to provide them with the necessary skills that will help them to better plan for their future and also the future of their children. Like most girls in the world and Ghana more specifically, these Kayayoo, are entitled to basic education as their fundamental human right, which is a normative United Nations’ legislation, to actively-and-positively contribute to their societies. They also deserve an opportunity to fully complete basic education in order to advance their personal lives and be empowered to better contribute to the community they live in.

Thus, to assist the Kayayoo to carve a bright future for themselves through access to their right to quality basic education, “The Kayayoo Alternative School Project” was initiated to serve as an educational resource platform for these children.
