Hope for Ghana built its sixth library and computer lab in a small rural village, Abor, in February 2017. The Director of Education, Mr. Rafael Kwashie, and I traveled to several schools and communities while I was recently in Ghana, looking at Ghana’s greatest educational needs.
When we visited Abor-Weme Municipal Assembly Basic School, home to 500 primary and junior high school students, Mr. Kwashie informed me that 0% of this school’s students were able to pass Ghana’s Basic Education Certificate Examination, an examination qualifying students to move from junior high school to senior high school.
In that moment I knew this is where Hope for Ghana’s next library and computer lab needed to be built. The blog page “Community Builds Sixth Library” tells the story of Hope for Ghana’s largest library and computer lab to date, including a heartfelt message of hope and gratitude that I proudly delivered at the inauguration ceremony.
