Help! St. Monica’s Anglican JHS in Need

 

The St. Monica’s Anglican Junior High School is a school at Bonwire, the home of the famous kente cloth of Asantes. The school has 98 students  with two classrooms and one uncompleted classroom (a little above foundation level). It has no staff common room, no office for the headteacher and the most important things they need are desks for students. It is so bad that some of the students have to sit on the bare floor in order to sit for their exams. When amoafowaa.com visited, there were no chairs for teachers to sit on even during recess.image

Since it is situated in a tourist site and serves many children from the small community, it is imperative to help them build this school to standard.

  1. These all appear to be hardworking students and I can’t help but compare this to schools in America, where a great deal of wealth is poured into the schools but students are unruly, unfocused, and graduate as under-educated. Over Thanksgiving break, my grandsons’ school spent a lot of money on security, installing bullet proof windows, barred gates, cameras, and computerized scanning systems because of the number of mass shootings we are experiencing here. There are so many things money can’t buy….still, I will reblog this and maybe some money will find its way to helping these hard working students. Where can people donate?

    1. Sad. Actually it is a mission school. So mostly the responsibility of the Anglican Church although the Ghana Education Service is partly responsible for it. So I know. They have shared responsibilities. It is sad. It broke my heart to see those students sitting on the bare floor for their exams.
