Ghana Twinning Project

Our Ghana twinning project has been growing in strength over the last few years. We have embarked on a long term project to raise £1,200 to create a stimulating environment for the children of Gyetiase Primary School in Ghana.  This will involve painting the school inside and out, making good of their existing cemented floors and providing materials for their learning.

Martha who is one of the founders of the Ashanti Development visited the children in year 3 on Friday 16th June. She shared her childhood stories of when she was growing up in Gyetiase she even danced and sang for us to the children’s and staffs delight. Martha expressed how grateful our school was in Ghana to have received all the wonderful gifts from us over the years. She thanked and praised the school community for their wonderful support and to the staff and children for making the project so successful.

 

I am pleased to inform all of our school community that we have reached our target for our long term project which is to repaint our twinned school inside and out and to make good of the existing floors. We have raised a whooping £1,300.00 with all your continued support. We are hoping that the school will be painted in time for when the children return after the summer holidays.  

 

A massive thank you to everyone for making this dream a reality for our friends in Ghana.
