PAMBE Ghana’s approach to providing excellent, culturally appropriate education in Ghana gives students opportunities to become literate in their mother tongue as well as in English and to enjoy their school experience. Our model helps to build trust, initiative, creativity, active student involvement and participatory teaching methods. PAMBE Ghana creates synergy among families, community, and school, and broadens the curricula to include local linguistic and cultural heritage.

PAMBE Ghana works with local villages to provide quality basic education that fosters academic, emotional and social development. This model builds a foundation for later academic success and promotes sustainable communities.

Why Pambe Ghana works …
