Comfort commented on A to Z TV academy

Hello Tiffanie Harrison, good to hear from you. I am a social scientist involve in social policy implementation through social entrepreneurship. I Co-funded Placefeet in 2015 to engage women in fruit processing whilst at the same time provide market for farm produce which otherwise would have gone bad if not churned. Even though our aim of assisting Small Holder farmers to enroll on the National pension scheme is not realized due to lack of funding and Covid19 pandemic, we are still passionate about reducing the centuries old poverty among families.
In Ghana, equity in education since independence had been far from what is written.Governments had done their bit but woefully inadequate The advent of Covid 19 led Schools to close totally without any plans of engaging students. Poor families are now forced by need to go back to their old ways of work despite the threat of life. This can make social distancing and a slow down of infections an utopia.If left unattended the poor would be worse off and the numbers will escalate.
Our interest in this challenge is to find a collaboration of expertise and funding partners to kick start and implement the A to Z TV academy. This include a free view curriculum and career base TV school, a similar in a TV app and a secured eCommerce platform to serve interested families. The program would place education at the door step of families. Those who had missed out on quality curriculum base learning would now have the opportunity to make up or choose the career based learning. We strongly believe this program can be a powerful tool to address the regional problem of social distancing to reduce infections, bring equity in education, and leap the majority of the regions poor out of poverty.
Your recommendation, collaboration, partnership or resource is dearly welcome to get A to Z TV academy in action. It would be a joy to see generations of under privilege families leap out of a windowless web of poverty to view a light of success at last.
