                         Rescue International School Complex in the Volta Region of Ghana

This school is privately owned and operated by Wilson and Aralia Anku.  Aralia and Wilson are advocates for education in Ghana.  They believe in providing quality and affordable education to all Ghanaian children, particularly those living in extreme poverty.  The school fees are very low, yet some families will struggle immensely to ensure that their children can attend.

Rescue International School Complex Wilson & Oralia Anku

I spent two weeks volunteering at this school this past May in the Volta region of Ghana.  The teachers were extremely dedicated and devoted to their students. However, simple supplies such as paper and pencils were still needed.   The remainder of my volunteer time was spent at a public school.  The experience at this school was eye-opening. The classes had up to 60 students, the teachers were tired and the resources were equally minimal.   After comparing these two institutions it was understandable why families value private education and why Aralia and Wilson are so passionate about education in Ghana. 

I was also lucky enough to have Aralia and Wilson as my hosts for two months. I was able to see first-hand how hardworking and dedicated they were about empowering children through education. 

All proceeds will go directly to Rescue International School Complex. The students and teachers will be the true beneficiaries.

If you have any questions or comments please send I or Wilson an email:
