Monthly Reports from 2014

Monthly report – October 2014

Accra High School
The Human Rights Club was again held at Accra High School during the month of October. A group of students between the ages of 14 and 18 voluntarily attended the sessions and contributed to all the discussions enthusiastically.

Monthly report – September 2014

Fadama Legal Assistance Program
As outlined in the Republic of Ghana 1992 Constitution, 'all persons shall have the right to equal education opportunities and facilities1.' However, over recent years the Projects Abroad Human Rights Office (PAHO) has noticed a rift between this ideology and its implementation in Old Fadama.

Monthly report – August 2014

Fadama Legal Assistance Program
With the schools closing in August PAHO sought to continue and build on the work done in previous months at Old Fadama, by running a vacation school at Bethel ECD throughout August. This offered a group of twenty students, between the ages of 12 and 17 years old, the opportunity to learn more about general human rights.

Monthly report – July 2014

Fadama Legal Assistance Program
Old Fadama is the biggest slum in Ghana, and is situated between Agbogbloshie market and Korle Lagoon. This Lagoon has been cited as one of the most polluted bodies of water on the planet, due to the government sancioned dumping of Western electronic waste within the lagoon.

Monthly report – June 2014

Fadama Legal Assistance Program
The Projects Abroad Human Rights Office (PAHO) works with FLAP to administer educational outreaches to the residents on crucial issues affecting their basic human rights. If the weather allowed it, PAHO volunteers attended the Old Fadama Slum every Wednesday to conduct the outreaches.

Monthly report – May 2014

Fadama Legal Assistance Program
The Old Fadama Slum in Accra, Ghana, is home to approximately 80,000 Ghanaian people and is characterized by poor quality housing and inadequate sanitary facilities, increasing the vulnerability of its residents to the effects of econimic, social, political and environmental insecurities and stressors.

Monthly report – April 2014

Fadama Legal Assistance Program
There are a number of activities in Old Fadama where the residents organise themselves as communities in forming unions, churches and mosques and also in establishing schools for the approximate 11,000 children in the slum.

Monthly report – March 2014

Fadama Legal Assistance Program
FLAP is based in a building located in the midst of Old Fadama and one of it's aims is to educate the people of Old Fadama of their human and legal rights as applied to a variety of topics.

Monthly report – February 2014

Fadama Legal Assistance Program
Old Fadama is the biggest slum in Ghana, and is situated between Agbogbloshie market and Korle Lagoon. This lagoon has been cited as one of the most polluted bodies of water on the planet, due to the government sanctioned dumping of Western electronic waste within the lagoon. The government also owns the land on which the slums are situated, so the estimated 100,000 people living in the slums have settled there illegally.

Monthly report – January 2014

Fadama Legal Assistance Program
The FLAP team began the new year with a new group of volunteers and a renewed enthusiasm for the project. With the FLAP office only opening at the end of September 2013, this year will be FLAP's first full year in operation and where the work of FLAP can really begin in earnest.
