Kyabobo Girls' School is currently providing a free, high quality education to 500 girls from Nkwanta and the Volta region.
In 2019, our first intake of SHS pupils sat their final secondary school exams (WASSCE) and graduated from Kyabobo Girls' School. Results were outstanding with 84% of pupils achieving grades that afford them access to tertiary education. Exceptionally for the district, 30% of pupils passed at a level that qualifies them for entry to Ghana's top universities. Five pupils have already taken up university places and others are intending to get work experience and apply next year.

We know that our school greatly improves the achievement of girls and gives 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 nineteen 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.
