The M/A Girls Model Junior High School in the small Ghanaian town of Ewusiejoe was opened in 2016. It is committed to improving the education of over 400 girls from the surrounding area – however, the funds only sufficed for a makeshift wooden structure.


In 2023, I supported the construction of a new school block with six classrooms and adequate sanitation facilities. This is certain to create a solid foundation, both literally and figuratively.


Ewusiejoe has about 7,000 inhabitants and is located in the Western Region, not far from Ghana's fourth largest city, Sekondi-Takoradi. Over a third of the population is under the age of 15.


Unfortunately, education is often neglected particularly for girls. The result? An increased number of school dropouts. Now, thankfully, such a Junior High School can help to break down traditional role models.


One of the core objectives was to improve hygiene standards. This is achieved with the help of the new sanitary facilities and an autonomous water supply, but also through training and education.


This leads to fewer illnesses, makes it possible for the girls to attend school during menstruation, and reduces teenage pregnancies. In addition, this knowledge is passed on to the rest of the population, which in time will have an enormous effect – step by step.


The construction got underway in February 2023. Within a few months, the walls were completed, which now only need to be roofed over.


Since October 2023, the school infrastructure finally does justice to the immense importance of girl education.

I would like to thank all supporters as well as the aid organization Madamfo Ghana which led the execution of this project.
