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.

Akwaaba, welcome.

Greetings from the Akatim Village School Family of educators.

We’d like to introduce you to Mr. Isaac Amenu, the new headmaster of the Akatim Village School. Mr. Amenu was born in Berekum and has always dreamt of becoming a teacher. He says that it is a dream come true to be able to provide quality education to any pupil that wants to learn, regardless of gender, race, religion, or money. Everyone and anyone who wants to learn, Mr. Amenu is eager to teach them.

Isaac attended the University of Education in 2012 after his completion of Atetebu Teaching College in 2009. From there he was then appointed as Headmaster of Diabaa D/A JHS from 2012-2015, before transferring to Berekum to be an ICT/Science teacher at Kato Presbyterian A Basic School. That was his last stop before being named Headmaster of the Akatim Village School. Medase, thank you, Mr. Amenu for joining us.
