The Kyabobo School for Girls

The 10th September 2013 was a landmark date for the Ghana Education Project when our pioneering new school for girls opened in Nkwanta.

Now in its fourth year, we have 300 girls enrolled in the school and making good progress. We are fortunate in being able to offer them  educational facilities and opportunities previously unknown in this region.  The essential teachers are provided by the Ghana Education Service, with whom we will be working closely at all times.

The new school will eventually offer a no fee education to 500 sudents, greatly exceeding our original target of 300 places! 

Few women in Northern Ghana currently complete even the most basic education and 77% of adult women are illiterate. The new school will greatly improve the achievement of girls: extending their education, enhancing their employment prospects, benefiting their families and building a better future for the entire community.

Take a look at the video!

This video was made by a team of girls from Tunbridge Wells Girls' Grammar School,

who visited Nkwanta in 2012 and  raised over £50,000 towards the building and furnishing of the school.
