Over the past couple of weeks we have visited Berekuso primary school and Berekuso junior high school to deliver our curriculum. Berekuso is a small community about two hours outside of Accra where the majority of adults work in agriculture. The school's modest classrooms are arranged in two long parallel rows separated by a grassy field in the middle. Headmistress Margaret explained to us that teen pregnancy is a big problem in this community and last year alone five girls (one fifth grader, one sixth grader, and three junior high students) dropped out of school after becoming pregnant.
We have so many great photos from these schools that we decided to share them in one giant post. We hope you enjoy them and get a better idea of what our program looks like on the ground.
