Our Library Story
Embark on a journey of empowerment with the Library Project at Nyakrom in Ghana. Our mission is clear: to build a gateway to knowledge and opportunities by establishing a library that nurtures young minds. By bridging the gap between potential and resources, we create a legacy of learning and growth. Join us in shaping a brighter future through your support and contribution. Together, we transform lives and ignite the spark of education.
Nyakrom Methodist “A” Basic School, located in Nyakrom, a town in the Agona West Municipal District of the Central Region of Ghana, was founded in 1917. The school has almost 700 pupils. The school is among the best in the area and is successful in sports such as soccer. The school’s curriculum is promising, and every year many pupils graduate and go on to study at well-known Ghanaian colleges.
Education is the cornerstone of empowerment that transcends borders. Yet without the availability of a library and books, Nyakrom students are denied the key to unlocking their potential. Our mission is clear: to bridge this knowledge gap by building a paradise of learning – a library that acts as a gateway to new worlds, fresh ideas, and limitless possibilities.
Reading books benefit kids’ abilities to learn and write and pursue their eagerness to learn. The school already has a place reserved for the library, yet they need help constructing it. They need plywood, board, ceiling buttons, nails, louver frames, glasses, concrete, carpenters, paint, three ceiling fans, shelves, desks for kids to study, a computer, burglar proof, and books.
Constructing a library for the pupils and the entire village of Nyakrom would significantly impact the community. By cooperating, we can help spread the joy and benefits of learning. Even a modest contribution can positively impact the advancement of the library project and help fulfill the aspirations of the Nyakrom villagers.
The library project is more than just construction; it is a testament to the collective belief in the potential of each student. It symbolizes unity, progress, and an unwavering commitment to nurturing young minds. We invite you to join us on this transformative journey. Your support, whether through donations, volunteering, or advocacy, is an essential step toward turning dreams into reality. Let’s write a new chapter about opportunities, empowerment, and promising education.
Together, we are building a library and creating a legacy of learning, growth, and sustainable change. Thank you for being a part of this journey.
Would you like to help Ghanaian children and the whole village of Nyakrom?
Without books and the library, kids can’t pursue their learning and writing abilities to their full potential and pursue their eagerness to learn. The project’s objective is significant and life-changing for the villagers – a library providing a gateway of knowledge, skills, and unlimited possibilities.
Donating to the project can help the entire village get the necessary library. The importance of the library is significant for the whole town, and it will continue to be relevant even after the project, enabling the development of writing and reading skills and facilitating continuous learning.
You can donate the amount you want to the project via the GoFundMe website.
