In collaboration with Hope for All Children Development, an NGO working for the rights of children to education in Ghana, a commemoration of the World Day for Overcoming Extreme Poverty will be held on October 17 in Salpiiga, in the Bawku West District of the Upper East Region.

The event will involve the staging of a play/drama by school children, personal testimonies from people resisting poverty, addresses by local dignitaries, and a discussion to identify priority future actions. Hope for All Children Development had first become involved with people from poor communities in Salpiiga in 1999 when, with its partner organisation, Raleigh International, it built a school, and is now seeking to raise resources for its renovation.

Hope for All Children Development campaigns for the right of children to education, provides educational materials for less privileged children to attend school, organises after-schools programmes, and provides education to women on children’s rights, child labour and family planning.

For different reasons, the commemoration will take place in December, and not October.
