Projects

 

Currently we support the following primary, junior- and senior high schools as well as colleges and training schools:

 

 

1. Abofour Roman Catholic Kindergarten and Primary School

 

2. Abofour Roman Catholic Junior High School

 

3. St. Jerome Senior High School

 

4. Offinso College Of Education

 

5. St. Patrick’s Nursing and Midwifery Training School

 

 

We do not only offer 23 scholarships in these schools, but also provide them with proper and modern equipment, which is absolutely lacking there.

 

 

Moreover, projects that we support, include providing with solar lamps (http://www.villageboom.de) as Ghana often struggles with deficiency of electricity and

ADAMED Expeditions E.V (http://www.ademed.de).

Furthermore, we aid local Health Care Stations and universities, i.e. the catholic university of Sunyani.

 

We ourselves are supported by various german associations such as University Hamm-Lippstadt,

 

„Kindermissionswerk“ and others.
