VWA Children's Nursery in Oshieye Reopen

Date Posted: 24/05/2014
In partnership with Momma Felicia, Volunteer West Africa was proud today to reopen its children's nursery in the village of Oshieye, Ghana. 

In partnership with Momma Felicia, Volunteer West Africa was proud today to reopen its children's nursery in the village of Oshieye, Ghana. The nursery had been closed due to an extended half-term break in order for VWA to build a new outbuilding for the children and to decorate and develop the existing space. This included for the construction of 10m x 6m weather shelter - as the tropical rainy season is approaching - to keep the 86 children who attend the nursery protected from the elements.


Volunteer West Africa staff, volunteers and local tradesman worked on the shelter and VWA volunteer Emma was on-hand to welcome the children back to school and take some classes and extra-curricular lessons.


The children currently attending the nursery on a daily basis range in age from 1-5 years and comprise of vulnerable or disadvantaged children from the local communities who could not otherwise afford to attend school or daycare.


With the help of a number of supporters and donors - in particular Melanie Shaw of the UK - VWA has been able to offer the space, food, water and shelter to the children free of charge as well as meet the cost of building the weather shelter and providing equipment such as desks, benches and uniforms for the children.


Before Volunteer West Africa intervened, the nursery was located in an unfinished disused building with no access to water, electricity or cooking/washing facilities. The children have now gained a safe and spacious area in which to learn and play. They receive a healthy meal for lunch and clean drinking water and healthcare facilities are provided by VWA.
