Event description

Description

Just before leaving Ghana in May, me and another volunteer on an VSO ICS placement left a business proposal outlining a project for a mobile library to service schools in and around Asamankese in southern Ghana.

The mobile library is a project that will bring benefit to many children in schools, in and around the Asamankese area. The project was was laid out in a proposal written by me (Gregory Morgan-Jones) and and another volunteer whilst on a 3 month placement in Asamankese with VSO. When talking to teachers and students alike we would constantly hear the same issues due to the lack of books. The project we were undertaking was not aimed at this issues so we decided to look at the issue as a side project. We came up with a concept that would be relatively simple, cheap and ultimately self sustainable. We laid out a proposal for a Mobile library that would be able to reach around 30 schools in a fortnight and be self sustainable as a business as well as including ideas to maximise the effects of the library by getting the schools involved. On our departure we presented the proposal to a local NGO, F.L.O.W.E.R, who decided to take up the project.
