A little about your partner school...

Woe EP is a government school which was established in 1909 in the village of Woe, Ghana. The school provides an education for approximately 500 students aged between four and 20 years old.

Whilst Woe EP is a government-run school, it is severely underfunded. In some classrooms, there are not enough desks for the students, so children have to sit on the floor. There is also a significant lack of basic equipment such as textbooks, which can be challenging for the teachers.

Woe EP is located in Ghana’s rural Volta region, where poverty is prevalent. The main industries are agriculture and fishing, and it is common for children to work alongside their families to bring in an income, instead of attending school. Schools such as Woe EP are trying to encourage more children to start school earlier and stay in education longer.
