Nurturing Future Champions: Play-Based Learning in Ghanaian Basic Schools

Nurturing Future Champions: Play-Based Learning in Ghanaian Basic Schools

The Mother of All Nations Foundation (MoANF) is committed to providing innovative and effective educational experiences for young minds. Recognizing the transformative power of play, we have engaged 80 educators from selected basic schools in the past two weeks, introducing them to the principles of play-based learning.

This initiative aligns perfectly with our mission to empower young people and foster a more equitable society, as embodied in Sustainable Development Goal 4: Quality Education. Play-based learning goes beyond rote memorization. By nurturing a child’s natural curiosity and love of play, we can unlock a world of academic benefits. Transforming play into learning opportunities fosters creativity, innovation, and critical thinking skills – essential tools for navigating the complexities of the 21st century.

These skills are not just crucial for academic success but also for addressing the challenges of tomorrow. By cultivating a generation of creative problem-solvers, we are laying the foundation for a more sustainable future. Play-based learning directly contributes to several Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), including:


  • Goal 1: No Poverty: By fostering innovation, children develop the skills to create solutions for economic challenges.
  • Goal 3: Good Health and Well-being: Play can encourage healthy habits and environmental awareness.
  • Goal 8: Decent Work and Economic Growth: Play-based learning equips children with the adaptability and critical thinking required for future careers.

Through this initiative, MoANF is not only unlocking the inner talents of Ghana’s future leaders but also investing in the nation’s future prosperity. We are grateful for the support of Global Funds for Children in making this program a reality. Together, we can create a learning environment that empowers young minds to reach their full potential and contribute to a brighter future for all.

This is in partnership with Global Giving and Play Action International
