Every day, millions of children throughout Africa struggle to learn while sitting on the floor or on the ground under trees. Africa Legacies Foundation aims to change that. Giving them a desk, where they can write and concentrate, is the first step towards creating an educational system that attracts, and keeps, eager young students.

It is often said that education makes a woman more beautiful and attractive and men more gentlemanly and respectable. Many countries lay great emphasis on education for the people. As a result class lessons throughout the world are held in rooms. This ensures sitting convenience, comfort, and total concentration when lessons are going on.

Millions of students in Africa spend their days packed into tiny classrooms, sitting on dirt floors for hours at a time. Giving them the most basic tools–a place to sit, read and write–could help them achieve a better education and a brighter future. Africa Legacies Foundation is working to make that a reality.


There are about one thousand schools today in Ghana where classes are held under trees. These include kindergarten, primary, Junior High school (JHS) and even Senior High School (SHS). The children in kindergarten and lower primary sit on the ground to write and receive teaching from the teachers. Those in the higher levels carry tables and chairs daily and place them under the trees.
