Why Support Awaso Academy International?
Awaso Academy is a private, independent, K-9 elementary school that provides high quality education to the children of Awaso. The academy opened in October 2010. The school currently has classes from pre-k to 6th grade with an enrollment of 277 students. The school helps prepare Awaso children for higher education so they can ultimately compete for jobs within their chosen fields.
90% of all children in Awaso do not attend high school. Although the children would like to have the opportunity for additional education, they are unable to pass National Government Exams to enter high school.
- Provide K-9 children with an exceptional learning environment currently only found in urban private schools
- Build an enduring facility in rural Ghana to enable the people of Awaso to break the cycle of poverty through education.
- Enable its students to pass Ghana government exams, continue their education, secure better paying jobs and build self-esteem.
- Develop sustainable agriculture and livestock program on school land, a source of income and food for children at school.
