Welcome to The Ghana Education Project
A Small Charity with Big Purpose!
We are a registered UK charity looking to support the development of education and associated infrastructure in Nkwanta, a deprived area of North East Ghana.
Our founder trustee Gill Norris has coordinated our efforts in Nkwanta on a voluntary basis since she moved to live there in June 2004. Gill was awarded the MBE for her work with young people both in Ghana and in the UK.
The charity works closely with local Ghanaian authorities and teaching groups in order to achieve our goals.
The Kyabobo School for Girls, which opened in September 2013 continues to flourish with its third intake of pupils in September 2015
250 girls are now enrolled at out at our beacon school in Nkwanta. Read more .....
