Prince &Princess Academy Proj:Ghana
Prince & Princess Academy Building Project
Mission Statement: To provide low cost and quality child education services to the ever expanding residential area of Kunyavilla and its environs. Prince and Princess Academy will focus on providing primary educational services with an emphasis on the lower income class.
Education is said to be the channel through which countries develop. The essence of education in this era of globalization and international development cannot be over emphasized. If education is so important in the life of a human being, then why it is that most young people in Ghana and especially Tamale-Kunyavilla
in the northern region of Ghana do not have full access to quality education. Notwithstanding the fact that the constitution of the Republic of Ghana demands Government to provide “Free Compulsory Basic Education (FCUBE)”, little has been done by successive Governments to achieve this constitutional mandate. It is against this background that we thought of setting up a very low cost alternative to providing quality basic education for the deprived community called “Kunyavilla” and its environs. Kunyavilla is located in the Tamale north constituency in Ghana. Access to basic education in this area is very hard for most parents due to high school fees. Research conducted by most civil society groups indicates that the people are willing to send their youths to school but are put off by the exorbitant fees charged by the good schools in the Metropolis. The construction of this six class room block and a library will therefore be aimed at bridging this gap by providing quality education.

We have some great news! As a result of the efforts of the assemblymen and community leaders, the metropolitan council has paid a contractor to extend the construction of a nearby road that will allow vehicles, especially trucks coming into the community, to move much more conveniently! Below are some photos of the road construction.
