Kyabobo Girls' School is currently providing a free, high quality education to over 350 girls from Nkwanta and the Volta region – and we plan to increase this number to 500 girls by the end of 2018.
In 2016, our first cohort of pupils achieved an incredible 100% pass rate in their Basic Education Certificate Exams (BECEs) as they completed their first three years of education in Junior High and progressed to Senior High School.

We know that our new school will greatly improve the achievement of girls and give them a chance to further their education and enhance their employment prospects, in turn benefiting their families and the entire community.
More than 5,000 boys and girls have now participated in our Nkwanta Award scheme. This project has now evolved into the Kyabobo Conservation Award, involving 1085 pupils from 24 schools, who are learning about conservation and visiting the nearby Kyabobo National Park.
Ghana Education Project is an active contributor to a wide range of educational initiatives delivered through local schools to improve teaching standards and educational results across the region. Currently, we are playing a key role within Volta Reads, a pilot scheme which aims to increase basic literacy at primary school level.
Over the past fifteen years, we have funded high-impact building projects such as the Kyabobo Sports & Community Centre and the Kyabobo Guesthouse – all built with local labour to provide jobs and communal facilities for the entire community of Nkwanta.
