A Charity Supporting Girls' Education in Ghana

Supporting education for girls and working for the wider community in Nkwanta, a remote and rural area in the Volta Region of Ghana.

Ghana Education Project is a registered UK charity supporting education for girls and the wider community in Nkwanta, a deprived area of Ghana in West Africa. 

Our flagship project is the ground-breaking Kyabobo Girls' School, funded by supporters of Ghana Education Project and run in partnership with Ghana's Education Service (GES).

By directly educating more than 350 girls and supporting many other schools in the area, we are making a highly focused impact on educational standards, gender equality and sustainable development in the Volta Region of Ghana.

For over twenty years, our founder trustee Gill Norris has led our education initiatives in Ghana on a voluntary basis, supported by an enthusiastic team of volunteers in the UK. 

Gill moved to live in Ghana in June 2004 and was awarded the MBE for her work with young people and girls' education, both in Ghana and in the UK.
