Education Initiatives

A school session in rural Ghana is conducted under the shade of a large tree in place of a schoolhouse. A young student cannot attend school in rural Sierra Leone because she cannot afford the school uniforms. In Jamaica, a slum school struggles to fund another year of alternative education for street children in need.

“The human mind is our fundamental resource,” John F. Kennedy famously said. As rural and low-resource communities grow and expand their own development potential, SHGO actively supports education as a key tenant of community sustainability and local empowerment.
