SPONSOR A CHILD
Our local communities in which the school is situated have several children who come from poor backgrounds and will not be able to access quality education. Our scholarship program provides support for children from vulnerable homes who would otherwise have difficulty accessing good education and being able to realize their dreams. Some children are on partial scholarship and other on full scholarship.
How it works: The school has empowered the teachers to detect and conduct background checks on kids who may have difficulties at home. We have also made it a policy to reserve part of the admission to children from such backgrounds every year. When a child is suspected to be from a poor home, a team comprising of the Administrative assistant, the teacher of the child and the Head of Academics first do a background check on the child and ascertain the nature of the problem. This normally include talking to the community members and the people around. After the initial findings, the parents of the child will be called for further discussion. Upon the final recommendation from the team, an application form is issued to the child and once completed, we then proceed to profile the child.
SPONSOR A CLASSROOM
If you are a company or an individual looking to undertake a social project either in your name or that of a loved one, you may consider sponsoring our classrooms projects. The classroom will be dedicated to the sponsor with a sign showing who sponsored the classroom. . The sponsor will also be listed on our website and may use the sponsorship in your own Public Relations work. Companies interested in this will first pay for the cost of construction and setting up of the classroom which is approximately 10.000 Euros (12,000 USD). Sponsorship can be prolonged every 5 years by contributing 25% of the initial sum for the maintenance and to keep the quality of the classroom. Sponsors are welcome and encouraged to visit the school and specifically to see the sponsored classroom.
Sponsorship does not grant any rights to influence the curriculum of the school or to influence the hiring of the school. Sponsorships are not accepted from organizations that produce tobacco or weapons and other trades prohibited by International and local Ghanaian laws. Sponsorships are also not accepted from companies offering gambling services as these are also against the principles on which our children are being trained.
