The past 3 years has been focussed on building relationships, establishing a team and identifying the key areas for development. We’re now ready for action!
Our partnership with the Dagara Music Centre, (based in Medie) has meant we have been able to establish strong ties with this community, it’s leadership, schools and community members.
Our community research and analysis has identified 3 areas in which we feel our approach can support significant positive engagement and impact.
The increase in population and lack of infrastructure has caused severe sanitation issues. Plastic waste, household waste and human faeces are causing severe health issues and environmental problems.
Medie has grown from 10,000 to 25,000 people in just 10 years. It does not have the quality schools necessary to provide education to all youth in the area. Schools and under-resourced and under-managed.
The growing number of young people without Senior High School education or vocational training is causing high unemployment rates and a rise in alcoholism and drug use.
