Manpong, Ghana School Project  |  Queen Esther School 2010
 
VIDA is pleased to announce that the Manpong School is open as of September 4, 2010. The community of Manpong is located in central Ghana. There was no school for the more than 80 children in the area. Students were educated in an apartment building and had to halt educational activities every time it rained. Parents in the community became frustrated with the poor state of educational infrastructure and were beginning to remove their children from school altogether. A partnering NGO alerted VIDA of the dire situation in Manpong. VIDA partnered with the community in the planning of the new school and began construction. VIDA volunteers traveled to the community and were welcomed by energetic students ready to show their appreciation for the new school.

Here are several VIDA Board members and volunteers visiting the construction site and current school site to assess the progress and additional needs of the community. The Director had just recieved a close down notice from the District Director of Education.
 
Givology donations were used to send supplies and build desks for the students in 2011. Please visit our Givology project page for details.
