Impact Next Gen's Projects

Sit A Child In Rural Ghana Project

Impact Next Gen is dedicated to creating lasting change in rural Ghana. Our fundraising events and donations go directly towards supporting projects that improve the lives of those in need. 


About The Project

Supplying Classroom Furniture & School Materials

The Need

For many schools in deprived communities, they don’t have the luxury of basic school furniture.

Classroom furniture is an essential part of the components of educational supply and a very important facility that helps to provide a conducive, comfortable and functional classroom environment for students in educational institutions across the country.  

Because every aspect of the educational system is key to the full realisation of a child overall performance, it is important that attention is paid to the lack of furniture in these classrooms. 

The First Campaign

'One Cedi for Change' (1C4C) Campaign started its Sit A Child project out of the need to help build desks for the schools it had engaged. The campaign started engaging students through its reader’s clinic and 1C4C reader’s club, and realised that for most of the students at the lower grade levels they had to sit or lie on the bare floor to learn. 

Kalvio Basic School was the first school to receive desks from the campaign. 100 galvanized dual desks were built for the school. 


Research & Specifications

Observations over the years from a consulting firm in Ghana, involved in supervising desk  supplies for the government:

1. Those made with real woods are durable and long-lasting.

2. Various components must be specified for the suppliers.

3.The metal parts must be 25mm square or circular pipes. Mild steel pipe components corrode quickly; a typical one supplied in the Akwapim North area of Ghana corroded quickly because of the Misty/humid environment.

4. The end of the pipes must be covered and the edges smoothly chamfered.

5. A supplier with material guarantees are reliable

6. Dual desk unit cost: 500 GHC ( £40 ), Hexagonal desk unit cost: 500 GHC ( £40 ) , Kindergarten Chair unit cost: 70 GHC ( £6 ), Adult table unit cost: 300 GHC ( £24 ) and Adult Chair unit cost: 135 GHC ( £10 ), All Inc. production and labour.


Go for parts with real wood and galvanized steel pipes (whether square or circular), edges must be smoothly finished without sharp and pointed ends. Cost may be a little higher for the galvanized steel pipes. Galvanized dual desk should be (red wood instead of wawa wood) to withstand the humidity and heat in Northern Ghana.
