Last year our Building Better Schools programme benefited four districts along the coastal Western Region of Ghana. We are starting this year in the Central Region and will be building two new Model Kindergarten Schools. The target districts and specific communities were identified through extensive consultations with the Ghana Education Service, local assemblies and communities, to ensure the schools built respond to need, but also fulfill the strategic objectives of the district Model Schools.
We are thrilled to announce that construction is ready to begin in: Abura-Asebu-Kwamankese (AAK) district in the community of Asebu and Mfantseman District in the community of Saltpond.
At the end of March our Managing Director Dominic Bond and members of our Ghana team were delighted to attend the traditional Sod Cutting Ceremonies at the two sites, which were also attended by the chief of each community and community elders. The ceremony blesses the site and the first cut is made into the soil!
We will keep you up to date over the next few months to share the progress on both sites, which will each have their own dedicated programme blog.

These two new school construction projects would not be possible without our fantastic donors and the funds raised from the epic Monster Triathlon in 2016. These schools will provide hundreds of children with a quality start to their education, giving them the foundation to unlock their potential.
We are delighted to announce that the Monster Triathlon fundraising challenge is back for September 2017 and is bigger and better then ever!
