Reinforce Learning and Instill Discipline

In order to ensure that our girls excel in the schools that they attend, where there are limited resources such as books, access to light for learning in the evening when they get home and motivation, we have programs that enage with them after school hours at a partner institution (thanks to: Lancaster University,Ghana and Benstel Preparatory) with all the facilities to give them the edge. We have seen great improvement from this, as the sessions give them one-on-one time with the tutors and make up for their diagnosed learning disabilities.
