2013 – Build #3: Akwakwaa Primary School
Our third school project brought us together with our partner organization Building for the Future Generations (BFG). Akwakwah is a farming village located on the Bawjuase Nkwata road, roughly 35 minutes drive from Agona Swedru.
The existing structure was very dilapidated and substandard. The walls are breaking down and the roof was made of dried palm fronds. The school was in this state of disrepair for over seven years. According to the teachers there was no school at all when it rained. We replaced the old structure with nine new classrooms and the school now serves over 350 students.
# of school rooms: nine
School student capacity: 350
