Education in Ghana.
Children in Ghana attend school from ages 3-21. Children attend Pre-School (ages 3-5), Primary School which is equivalent to Elementary School (ages 6-11) and then move on to Junior High School — like Middle School (ages 12-14). After Junior High School, students attend Senior High School (ages 15-17) and can then pursue higher education in a Tertiary Institution equivalent to College or a University when they are age 18-21.
Students in Ghana are learning a lot of the same things we teach our kids in the United States. Kindergarteners start basic English, as well as their native language Twi. They also learn important concepts like how to make sure their water is safe to drink, how to prevent diseases like Malaria and so much more. Older kids develop their computer skills, learn about world cultures and prep for life in the real-world.
Many children in rural Ghana have to make a choice between working to support their family and going to school. We don’t think that’s a choice any young person should have to make. With Sponsor a Student through The Senase Project, you can help rural students in Ghana by sponsoring a child in the Akatim Village School.
