The basic ability of literacy forms fundamental building blocks toward a person's education (child or adult). The practice of systematic phonics instruction has been proven to help students learn this basic skill. I'm unable to provide a correct academic reference, but I would refer you to "Systematic Phonics Instruction Helps Students Learn to Read: Evidence from the National Reading Panel’s Meta-Analysis", available on-line through http://m.rer.sagepub.com/content/71/3/393.short
If the basic technology is already available in such places as Ghana, and this project is able to deliver as outlined above, then it seems to me that it is (to coin a phrase) a no-brainer.
All I can add, is good luck to all involved. There will, no doubt, be difficulties to be overcome, but I am certain that dedication, skill sets, and belief in this project will deliver a better, more informed future for those that currently have no such prospects.
