Divine Wisdom Academy International School
Organized by: Kerry Flynn Markowsky
Kennedy, the proprietor of this school, came to Kitase and saw that the village needed a school. What I find so remarkable is that he built one! I was blessed to volunteer teach at this school in Ghana in 2008. Kennedy, his wife, and his faculty, worked tirelessly, teaching in the day and painting, building, and cleaning at night and on weekends. I have seen this school transform from ply wood and tin rooms to a multi level concrete building with electricity. I have seen the impact a private education can make for these children, it truly is the key to their future. It is very difficult for children going to public school to score high enough on their exams to get into high school and later university. My goal is raise funds to cover the yearly tuition and materials for 20 students In need: that's $180 each. I know $3,600 is a big number and it's a grand idea but I can't help but remember students hiding when fees were due and fighting over desks...they wanted to be in school so badly. Please help if you are able and/or keep Wisdom Academy and its children in your thoughts. Thank you!!!
