Inspiring individuals teaching at the Akatim Village School.
A team with a focus on excellence.
The Akatim Village School is not an easy place to teach. Dangerous weather conditions affect travel to school, which is only accessible by a dirt road. It also has a 100% teacher retention rate. This was unheard of in the past, many teachers chose to transfer after only 1 or 2 years. But this group of educators decided to face the challenges of teaching in a rural community. Why? Because they believe in what’s happening at Akatim, and have the results to back it up. This project would not be possible without them.
We’d like to introduce you to Mr. Joseph Nyarko, the new headmaster of the Akatim Village School. Mr. Nyarko was born on August 10th, 1970 in Senase, Ghana. After realizing his desire to teach others, he attended the University of Cape Coast and received a Bachelors degree in education. He then taught in Kofuridua in the Eastern Region of Ghana, before resettling in Kato, Berekum where he was a headmaster for the past two years. The teachers in Akatim describe him as a friendly, kind, loving, and hardworking individual.
We can’t say enough about Joseph Nyarko, and it’s our hope that we can grow and learn from him and thrive as an organization with his help. Medase, thank you, Mr. Nyarko for joining us.
Thanks to the motivated individuals at the Akatim Village School, our organization looks forward to the bright and exciting future that lies ahead.
