2007 – Build #1: Amonfro Primary School (Linfield Primary)
Our first project rebuilt a crumbling stick framed school into a durable six classroom cement structure. The school now provides a safe and sheltered environment for over 750 children from around the booming community of Amonfro, Ghana. Drawing on international funding and local talents, the project was successfully completed for a mere $20,000 USD. As an added bonus the construction of the Amonfro Primary School created over 50 jobs over the course of 24 months. The increase in the number of classrooms has also ensured space for 4 to 5 new educational positions. More importantly the provision of a stable structure and workable teaching conditions has decreased the turnover of the highly valued staff.
