In 2010, AEF assumed operations of a school located in Nkawkaw, Ghana which has been renamed Empower Academy. This school has over 400 students from Pre-K through 9th grade and is an important center for the community. Through the generous support of our donors and partner organizations, AEF has been able to make substantial improvements to the Empower Academy campus, including a new library, a new early childhood development wing and a computer lab. AEF has also sponsored annual trips to paint, refurbish classrooms, and provide new medical and academic supplies. As a result of the efforts of many, Empower Academy students have obtained some of the highest test scores in the region.
We are proud of our efforts at Empower Academy but the school also remains in desperate need of assistance. Flooding at the campus has destroyed the school’s bathroom facilities and leaves the playground and common areas unsafe for young students. Empower Academy needs a large investment to rebuild the bathroom facilities and permanently address the flooding problems. Please help in any way you can. .
