School Pedagogy Project (SPP)

The School Pedagogy Project is implemented by RAINS in partnership with AXIS and funded by DANIDA through CISU

This project aims at improving the quality of education in schools in Northern Ghana through the introduction and use of participatory teaching and learning methodologies. This project is premised on the fact that despite the remarkable successes witnessed in improving access to education to basic education in Ghana, however the educational systems is still grappling with issues related to the quality of teaching and learning received by children.

It focuses on teacher capacity building, strengthening PTA/SMC, enhancing supervision and advocacy as vehicles to achieving its goal.

The project also entails a component of active citizenship. This component is geared at ensuring that children know their rights and responsibilities and are encourages to participate in actions that are intended for the good of society.

The first phase of the project stretched between July 2017 and August, 2018. Within this period, the project concept of using school gardens as tools for teaching and learning was piloted in two (2) school in the Savelugu Municipality. The successful completion of this pilot phase ushered the project into its second phase with the addition of four (4) more schools in the municipality.
