College for Ama

Project Description

CofA’s mission is to provide educational opportunities for adolescent girls in rural areas of Ghana to attain a college education.

During the summer holidays school girls aged between 9 – 15 years spend a few weeks away from their villages at a university campus where they interact with their mentors (female university students), teachers and other role models.

CofA wanted to deepen the girls’ learning experiences during the school year. We trained 10 teachers from the Berekuso Basic School in 2015, and a number of CofA girls from Berekuso and Pokuase have become Exploratory Club members since 2016.
