About Sowers Academy
Sowers Academy is a private primary and junior school in Medie, Ghana. The owner, Emmanuel Ameyaw built the school, as it stands, with his own limited resources to provide education to the growing number of children in the area who couldn’t afford the government school fees. The school now has over 220 students from age 3 to age 20 who are all passionate about their education.
We have been working with Sowers Academy since 2015, building relationships with the leadership, teachers and students and developing what we believe to be a sustainable and long term development plan.
The Development Plan
Funding and Support
The 10 identified areas of development are interconnected and as equally important as each other, however ‘Building and Infrastructure’ and ‘Resources and Equipment’ are the most financially dependent. Without the support of external funding in these areas it will be impossible to make significant progress.
