With the help of one sewing machine that she had learned to use, to sew uniforms for the pupils at absolutely no cost.

“This disheartening development of seeing these young ones whom we refer to as future leaders walk to school in torn clothes compelled me to put my skills in sewing to use,” she said in an interview.

She considered finding solutions to this challenge a collective responsibility hence why she took it up with her personal funds and with the support from friends and loved ones.

A school uniform per child currently costs her 50 Ghana Cedis and sometimes less depending on the school. Ama Val carries out the project successfully through partnering with another seamstress whom she pays.

She engages her service in order not to overburden herself as a teacher. It is her dream to expand this project she dubbed “One Student; One School Uniform” to other affected students in other schools in Ghana.
