Akalove Basic School
Akalove Basic School began a few years ago in a small village near the mouth of the Volta River. Local residents constructed the school’s building and until recently paid the teachers’ salaries, as they believed that a school in the village was necessary to save young children from having to walk several miles a day to attend schools outside the village. In 2014 the government began supplying teachers for the school and approved the addition of a junior high school. Yo Ghana! began working with Akalove School early in 2014.
