The need for education is great in Ghana, especially in the slums. Most parents are living in the slum community of Agbogbloshie and surrounding areas because they themselves are uneducated. In order for the children to attend school, parents must be able to purchase supplies and uniforms, as well as pay other school fees. The residents of Agbogbloshie are those who are unable to get an adequate job due to lack of education, those who have been displaced due to refugee status, and single mothers who are unable to solely provide for their children. These parents find it extremely difficult to provide for the basic needs of their children, which means they typically do not have the finances to send their kids to school.
