WE ARE 10!



It is with the deepest gratitude that I send this message. Ten years ago to the day, I visited Ghana during holidays break as a graduate student. While preparing for my capstone and graduation in May 2014 I took the opportunity to register the Girls Education Initiative of Ghana, GEIG.


1st vacation classes (2014)


GEIG grew out of my personal journey in education and study abroad research and encounter with Lugile, a mute girl I met in South Africa. Inspired by her and recalling my days recovering from a devastating car accident and not being able to talk, I vowed to commit myself and my work to advancing girls education and inclusive education for girls in my home country of Ghana.

I thank Dr. Teboho Moja, New York University’s Africa House, Ambassador William Awinador-Kanyige, GEIG founding board members- Kristen Cordero, Robert Bernstein, Winifred MacQuaye, Mary Amoah, Dr. Kwame Akonor and Agatha Patterson for the support and guidance.

To the programs team in Ghana- Eric Yeboah, Amos Katsekpor, Adwoa Gyamfuah and Andrews Lartey, your dedication to thestudents is what has sustained the organization.

Thank you to the parents, teachers, volunteers, and all community partners. 10 Years! I am grateful for your commitment to realizing my dream. Cheers to you and our decade of impact.



Stay tuned for our anniversary celebrations!
