Adesua Kruwa Set to Transform Basic 6 Education in Ghana

Adesua Kruwa Set to Transform Basic 6 Education in Ghana

The municipality of Medina will serve as the launching pad for an innovative education initiative geared at improving the literacy skills of Grade 6 students in public schools. The initiative, titled “Adesua Kruwa,” which means “Learning Horizon” in the Akan language, will go on for seven weeks starting on the 18th of May 2023.

Adesua Kruwa is a comprehensive initiative designed to address the diverse aspects of children’s literacy development. The initiative has four objectives: enhancing oral language skills, enhancing communication and analytical skills, fostering self-confidence and personal development, and enhancing overall literacy skills.

The initiative takes an interdisciplinary approach to language acquisition. To improve their aural language skills, students will engage in interactive activities that develop their listening, speaking, and pronunciation abilities. In addition, they will engage in problem-solving activities, group discussions, and critical thinking exercises designed to enhance their communication and analytic abilities.

Children are inherently inquisitive and capable of complex thought, according to the project coordinator. Miss Susan Naa Lamiley Lamptey “Our objective is to cultivate these qualities through structured but engaging activities. We believe this strategy can result in a substantial improvement in their literacy abilities.”

In addition to cognitive development, Adesua Kruwa will emphasize the students’ personal growth. The project seeks to increase the children’s self-confidence by fostering active participation, collaboration, and creativity in a safe and supportive learning environment.

The students will receive age-appropriate reading materials, participate in writing exercises, and engage in vocabulary-building activities in order to enhance their literacy skills.

The project coordinator explained, “We understand that literacy development is not just about reading and writing, but also about developing the ability to comprehend, interpret, and generate ideas.” Therefore, we’re adopting a comprehensive approach to ensure that we’re fostering learners who are well-rounded and prepared for future challenges.

Adesua Kruwa presents a promising paradigm for addressing problems with literacy in Ghana’s public basic education system. This pilot project’s success could pave the way for similar initiatives across the nation, contributing to an increase in the national literacy rate among elementary school students.

With such an all-encompassing approach to literacy development, the initiative has the potential to transform our basic  education system. According to the proverb, “a journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step,” and with the launch of Adesua Kruwa today, a significant step is taken towards a brighter academic future for Basic 6 students in Ghana.

We are glad to have partnered with municipal secretariat of the Ghana Education Service with support from Global Fund for Children
