Campaign for Teaching and Learning Materials

AT CHRAD, we strongly place emphasis on Instructional Materials, also known as Teaching/Learning Materials (TLM). They are collection of materials including animate and inanimate objects and human and non-human resources that a teacher need for teaching and learning situations to help achieve desired learning objectives. Instructional materials may aid a student in concretizing a learning experience so as to make learning more exciting, interesting and interactive. They are tools used in instructional activities, which include active learning and assessment. The term encompasses all the materials and physical means an instructor might use to implement instruction and facilitate students’ achievement of instructional objectives.

OBJECTIVES:

Provide support for developing students’ learning knowledge and skills.

Enhance learning supports and improve learning performance through creating a leaner-centered learning environment with more learning opportunities.

Shape the high quality learning atmosphere among learners, promoting their learning motivation.

Everything being equal, should the situation of COVID-19 improve; school year for Academic 2020/2021 will begin in September, 2020.

OUR HUMBLE APPEAL

As the situation of parents who are already constrained by extreme economic challenges and further worsen by the COVID-19 pandemic, we are humbly appealing to you to consider support us by donating any amount.

Help us to Protect Street / Refugees Children against COVID-19

Over the period, media reportage shows that the global medical community is working with unprecedented speed to discover a vaccine and therapeutic treatments for COVID-19. Amid this period of medical research and development, there has been a flood of stories about potential early breakthroughs hitting the news.

While these well-meaning stories are aiming to inspire hope, it’s important to evaluate these new developments with a data-minded perspective. Be hopeful, but recognize the reality of the situation as well.

Government of Ghana is working hard to sustain social distancing. This measure has been considered to be the best option in order to curtail the spread of the COVID-19 virus. On the other hand, it is a privilege to many, particularly our target beneficiaries on account of the fact that, they have scares resource to:

  • Support living in a house good enough to practice it.
  • Provide water for constant hand washing.
  • Purchase Hand sanitizers as a preference to food.

Media report about the United States, where most connecting friends and relatives live indicates that large numbers of people are employed in low-income, unstable jobs. This working population (which captures the friends and relatives) are losing their jobs due to the pandemic. Their increased financial burdens are becoming more fearful in that they can hardly determine their next sources of income.

As livelihoods are yet to return to normal, our target beneficiaries are unable to receive any form of assistance from friends and relatives. Petty trading that also keeps up is on a slow pace.

For these reasons, they are unable to pay for basic necessities including rent (for some), utilities, medical care, and food. Also, schools were sources of happiness for children are leaving these children at risk of facing loneliness as schools remain closed down.

With fears of hunger, homelessness, and certain hopelessness on the rise for this already vulnerable population, including involvement in negative social vices such as commercial sex, drugs and other criminal activities, they certainly need support more than ever.

A Budget of Fifteen Thousand United States of American Dollars is stage to help fight the virus and keep the children within the community safe.

Community Service

CHRAD organized empowerment workshop

The Cradle of Hope for Relief and Development (CHRAD) seeks to improve the professional well-being of present and future generations in communities where it operates by helping to achieve a humane, equitable, and sustainable balance between people and resources and its effective and judicious utilization.

Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) otherwise Non-Profit Organization (NPO) and Community Based Organization (CBOs) are all agents of change that collaborate with donor agencies to implement programs intended to address challenges in deprived communities.

Depending on the NGO focus areas, prioritized grants are directed by donors to address the specific need of the community such as providing clean drinking water, providing classroom blocks, providing teaching and learning aid, etc.

Over the years, donor grants for all these projects earmarked specifically for deprived communities are rapidly reducing because of some challenges such as:

1) Lack of transparency in the utilization of funds received for projects which cause donors to lose trust.

2) Inappropriate and or untimely interventions of projects leading to poor results

3) A poor budgetary allocation of resources and this often leads to suspicion on the part of the donors.

4) Lack of clarity in report writing which denies the organization the opportunity to justify positions.

5) Poor collaboration with the beneficiary community

6) Lack of strategies to mobilize resources to implement programs. Etc

Having identified these challenges that are hindering the progress of NGOs, CBOs in the community, CHRAD in collaboration with Global Giving organized a one (1) day workshop for NHOs and CBOs at the Buduburam Settlement. 46 participants from various organizations attended.

Speeches were made by the Director of CHRAD, Mr. Varney Sambola II who was then the chairman of the Liberian Refugee Welfare Council and the Representative from Global Giving.

Discussions were held as well as questions and answers from the participants to clear doubts.

At the end of the workshop, participants expressed appreciation to CHRAD for the training since it was the first of its kind. They pleaded with the organizers to expand the initiative and were able to uncover an individual’s weakness and addressed the same.

Brainstorming Exercise

The benefits of brainstorming include an opportunity to pull the jumbled ideas from your head and get them out – either audibly or on paper.
