This school is an NGO operating in Ghana. Since 1994 it has been providing a free quality education to children ages 3-17 in the village and surrounding area. Since its creation the school has graduated hundred of students who have gone onto have meaningful lives and jobs all across the world! The school works together with international volunteers to help each child achieve their full potential, and has hosted over 50 volunteers from everywhere around the world. The school also give job training to the women in the community on Saturdays

"After finishing my university training I found that most of the people in my community can not afford to send their children to school each day. I established the school to encourage those who do not have money to fulfill their child`s full potential and reach for a better future"
- Samuel Baafi, the founder and headmaster of the school

The school was created by locals for locals! We currently have 5 full time teachers and have deep ties to the community they are trying to better! We believe that progress has to come from the ground up and while many NGOs goals are pure the way the organization is built is tainted...

While Ghana remains one of the fastest developing African countries, the Ashanti district is both the poorest and most populated district of Ghana. Life in rural Ghana is extremely difficult and most families will end up living off as little as $300 USD each year. The biggest industry is farming of the cocoa, and plantain trees. Since this work is very time consuming and physically demanding all members of the family, including the children, will help. Part of the Redeemer Schools mission is to go out into the community and try to get as many new students as possible. We talk with the parents of the children and try to help them to make the right choice for their child`s future. English is the official language of Ghana but in many of the rural villages Twe remains the predominate language spoken, with just a handful of the villagers being able to speak and write in English. Working with our international volunteers we have been able to get dozens of students to a high school level of English speaking and writing. As English is used in all major professions and universities in Ghana the importance of this cannot be understated!

we need volunteers to teach in our charity school and work in our NGO in Ghana.the school comprises of nursery, primary and junior high.
