Naming of community school raises awareness of PAMBE Ghana model

The Inauguration and official naming of the school on May 27 was a milestone in the program and strategy of PAMBE Ghana. The preparations leading to it and the inauguration itself raised the profile of PAMBE Ghana. It enhanced our legitimacy and credibility as a partner and advocate in the district for making quality primary education accessible to children in underserved communities. It also provided a platform to raise awareness of the merits of mother-tongue literacy and to solicit material support for mother tongue, bilingual education. PAMBE Ghana is becoming a recognized name among peer agencies in the district. Such recognition is important. The inauguration laid the groundwork for even stronger collaboration and support with the Ghana Education Service, District assembly, District Health Directorate, information service and other key actors in the district.

PAMBE Ghana also used the school inauguration as a platform for friend and fund raising. This was also a big success, by our standards. Our appeal raised four hundred and ten Ghana cedis ninety-five pesewas (Ghc 410.95) as well as seven hundred Ghana cedis (Ghc 700.00) of pledges that day!

In addition, the East Mamprusi community bank donated a water tank worth nine hundred Ghana cedis (Ghc 900.00) for water storage for the school, while the Nayiri (King of the Mamprusi) gave a large white ram and Ghc20.00. The District information officer and journalist posted articles on the Ghana Government official website at

It was a remarkable show of support – “La’angum”!

We have high hopes that this is just the beginning.

Thank you all for your support.
