…pledges more educational support for children
Management of the Universal Wonderful Street Academy (UWSA) have returned to Ghana after a successful tour of Europe with assurance to continuously support the educational needs of children in the academy.
The UWSA, a non-governmental organization in Accra has, for the past six years, been working towards the education of deprived children in Jamestown and its environs.
The school provides tuition in basic arithmetic, English, Social Studies and African dancing and drumming lessons, arts and crafts design among others.
With operations in Spain and Germany, the school is able to mobilize support from both local and international philanthropists for the upkeep of the children in the academy.
Director of UWSA, Louis Yeboah Womder Doe, told the Goldstreet Business that the programme had been largely positive due to support from the project’s partners.
He asked Ghanaian corporate institutions to volunteer their resources and time to visit the children at UWSA to interact with them and explore possible ways of assisting them.
“We need more support in whatever way that is necessary to be able to build the future of the almost 200 children who the academy supports in various ways, adding www.fusa.de and www.universalwonderfulstreetacademy.org” Louis said.
The Universal Wonderful Street Academy, founded six years ago, admits children from six years to 17 years who have no interest or very little interest in formal education and vocational training.
The academy apart from the free formal tuition, through its partners, also provides free medical care and meal to the children some of who come from areas including Osu, Kinka and other suburbs within the environs of Jamestown.
