Curiosity is a good thing!

Curiosity is a good thing!

You can't start soon enough to foster curiosity for all things in children. We have chosen to pay more attention to STEM subjects (Science, Technology, Enginering and Maths). Exploring is the way to go, take it apart, put it back together make it work and have fun while you are at it and move on to a bigger challenge.

Stay Tuned to learn more about our partnership with PM STEAM Education Centre to help us shape our program.

Nose for Plastic impactful!

Nose for Plastic impactful!

Our Nose for Plastic Program is taking place at the moment. Kids have reached the part of the program where recycling is being discussed in depth. They are taught songs about recycling, reusing, and reducing plastic waste. They have been assigned project work (to use plastic waste to create a new product e.g. bags, pencil cases,etc.) which they will present in October after they return from the vacation break. The program is so successful that we will be partnering with an organisation in Tanzania to roll it out there!!!

Meet Benjamina

Meet Benjamina

12 years ago, I walked into the Centre, totally computer illiterate, and armed with a desire to read any book I could get my hands on. The Centre gave me access to the thousands of books that kept me occupied my entire childhood. It was also at the Centre, that I discovered Carolyne Keene’s “The Nancy Drew Series” which filled my love for crime and law. Now, I am a student at the Ghana School of Law, where I have picked up another leadership role, and I am 8 months away from being called to the bar.

Chess Club Revival

In our search for a new Chess Club teacher, prompted by Mr. Hazel’s return to his hometown during Corona, we could not have wished for a better outcome!  2 of our Alumni, who themselves learned to play chess at the Centre when it was introduced by Philip Sower, offered to take up the role of teaching de children. Janet and Munira are doing a wonderful job! We will support Janet and Munira in further developing their own chess skills by offering to enrol them in (online) tournaments.
