TO PROVIDE THE OUTSTANDING EDUCATIONAL AND EMOTIONAL SUPPORT SO ESSENTIAL FOR THE CHILDREN OF THE ABLEKUMAN FANMILK, A SUBURB OF ACCRA, GHANA.
The Jopat Academy of Success is a primary school founded by Josephine Agbenozan in 2007. The family environment provided is safe and caring, where support is tailored to meet the needs of our children. The outstanding educational programme allows children from challenging backgrounds to lead positive, confident and successful lives. Our children are hugely loving and full of potential, making them a pleasure to support.
Our services currently reach out to a steady growing number of children across Fanmilk and to the local community beyond. As well as providing this excellent education, The Jopat Academy of Success is also an important part of local regeneration, creating professional jobs in skilled roles such as teaching and child care.
This year the school admitted 20 new children which increased the number of children to 178 and we were able to raise the number of teachers to 11 and to employ an additional cook.
Just 150CHF enables a child to attend this Primary school for a year, with the great additional bonus of providing their school uniform, text and exercise books as well as stationary. We believe that EVERY child has the right to an education and we aim to provide this. Unfortunately, not every family in the area has been able to afford the essential school fees needed to maintain our wonderful school.
Thanks to charitable funding, however, we have been able to offer sponsorship to children for whom access to education would have otherwise been impossible. We are very happy to announce that due to the ‘Beatrice Akua Mensah Scholarship Programme’ additional 27 children have been successfully educated. It is only with continued financial support that we can ensure these and many more children will continue to have the same opportunity.
WITH YOUR SUPPORT:
1) We will be able to provide education for another ambitious child.
2) We will build up a School Library consisting of African school books, literature and story telling books
3) We will involve local artists in working with the children on Art Projects to decorate the school, complementing the work that has already been done to create a welcoming and friendly learning environment.
4) We will provide access to a range of sports and arts activities, clubs and day trips in the future.
