Our mission is to enable the people to help themselves through providing education for the children of Awaso, Ghana.

Highlights of the Year1

Main Objectives of the Project

  • Assist children to pass Ghana government educational exams at grade 9 level. These exams determine if the students can continue their education. “Rural Ghana” has a history of a low percentage of students passing the exams.
  • Encourage the parents and students to improve their living conditions by example and providing employment to the local people while developing this project.
  • Provide adult technical training in the areas of welding, carpentry, home economics, mechanics, plumbing (including training in building and maintaining septic systems), electricians, first aid, and financial management
  • Enable the people to “help themselves through education”. There is work available with local industries such as the Bauxite mine and lumber mill if the residents are trained. This employment of local people will improve the quality of life in the community
