Before the outbreak of the Corona virus, many people find it difficult to feed three times a day, especially widows and orphans and the volnerble population in general who have no source income for survival.

The present of the Corona virus has worsened their living conditions in terms of food and other basic needs.

There has been lockdown order to prevent the spread of the COVID-19. That is why there is the need to assist the volnerble population in the society with selfsustaing businesses and food provision for survival.

On the other hand, schools have been closed down as well to save the lives of students and staff until further notice. So I like to put in innovative measures for primary to senior High Schools students to study at home to save their future, since education is the key to better life.

What is the need are you focusing on?

I like to Carry out Educational projects(COVID-19 Social Distance Educational Program (CSEP) for Senior and Junior High Schools across Ghana, even in the cities where there is Lockdown. I will: 1. Create Social Distance Educational Classes (SDEC) Platform for Households and families and add parents to it as contact persons of the students through adverts, PTA/SMCs and Registration. 2. I will employ contract experts in all Subjects from Primary to Senior High Schools to prepare and present Lesson Notes and program the lesions into Video and word documents. The video shall be program on high capacity pen drives to be produced in more quantity for distribution in house holds and communities together with Laptops (for poor families and communities with no Electricity, Network and lack of funds). Solar panels shall be provided to Communities/Villages for studies, and for charging the laptops; and equally use Television to play the video lesions to their children). I will feed the poor.
