Aklorbordzi School, Ghana

A meaningful partnership

How it works, and a little about your partner school

We’re so excited to have you on board as a UK school partner, and we hope you’re excited too!

This page is your one-stop shop for everything related to your school partnership. Here you can download resources such as letters from your partner school, half-termly updates, and work produced by the students in Ghana. You can also learn about your partner school’s aims for the future, and how you can fundraise as a school to help them reach their goals.

At the bottom of the page, you’ll find the contact details for your School Partnership Co-ordinator, as well as some information about your partner school’s Headteacher – please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions!

Aklorbordzi School is a government-administered school located in the coastal town of Woe in Ghana’s rural Volta region. The school was founded in 1968, and now educates approximately 800 students from Kindergarten (age four) through to the junior years of secondary school (age 17) across 22 classrooms.

In the Volta region, the main industries are agriculture and fishing, and many children work alongside their parents to bring in an income instead of receiving an education. Aklorbordzi School aims to encourage more children to start school earlier and stay in education longer.

The school delivers Ghana’s national curriculum to its students. On completion of junior secondary school, students sit their Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE).

Fundraising

Fundraise for Aklorbordzi School

Any amount you fundraise will help Aklorbordzi School reach their goals sooner.

Because African Adventures Ltd. covers any costs associated with running our charity, African Adventures Foundation, 100% of the money you raise will go directly to your partner school.

Below, you’ll find three simple fundraising ideas, but feel free to get creative and think of your own!

Run a 'Ghana Day'

Organise a day to celebrate all things Ghanaian at your school, with food, drinks, music, dancing, arts and crafts…the possibilities are endless. Head to the Resources section to download a ‘How to Hold a Ghana Day’ pack, and start planning!

Hold a non-school uniform day

Ask students to donate £1 or £2 in return for wearing their own clothes for the day, and you’ll quickly raise a large amount of money! You could even theme your non-school uniform day by asking everyone to wear the colours of the Ghanaian flag.

Cycle the distance to Ghana

Recruit a team of students and teachers to cycle the distance from your school to Ghana! Divide the distance up and complete your individual cycles over a period of weeks or months. Collect sponsorship from friends, family and colleagues, and watch the pounds add up!
