Education is recognized as one of the keys to fighting poverty, but despite the awareness of that fact too many children in the Ajumako Enyan Essiam District and other communities are not in school. There are many reasons for that, not the least of which is poverty itself which forces families to put children to work or into other situations 

because they cannot afford to keep them at home and in school.

In addition, some social customs deny education to girls, and children who are orphaned are almost always placed in situations that reduce their chances for education. Keeping children in school is important not only to the children, but to the rest of the community, and to the nation as well. Education leads to economic growth,  social and political stability, declining crime rates and improved social services.

REDEP is committed to helping all children in the district and beyond to fulfil their basic rights to the level of education that will help them build a bright future. It seeks to learn the specific needs of the children who are in danger of not being able to reach their educational goals because of their social situations and to find ways to assist them to overcome those barriers. REDEP has been assisting the school district to help organize programs (such as spelling bees, Essay competitions, Debate, Reading in English and Fanti competitions)) to generate enthusiasm for school, and it works to encourage students to become teachers and return to the district to teach the next generation of students or useful citizens in future. In addition, REDEP has supported the mechanization of two boreholes for two Senior High School all within Ajumako Enyan Essiam District
