Every African or people who have lived in Africa know there is a great need for the improvement of girl-child education. Several attempts including campaigns have been held to improve the situation, and there is still a lot to be done to help the situation.
Legacy Girls’ College serves as an essential educational and motivational stage, ushering and immensely encouraging girls to pursue higher education and bigger dreams. It also provides educational and leadership opportunities for academically gifted girls in Ghana and beyond; the school brings together girls with academic potential, to be nurtured and to be educated in an environment where there are no limits placed on their unique potential as girls and is relevant to their needs as girls and future women leaders in society.
Legacy being a private school, and considering the advantages of a private school, and the limitations of affordability to the ordinary Ghanaian, are determined to offer scholarships to brilliant but needy girls whose parents cannot afford to place them in such an institution. Legacy has therefore, through the kind sponsorship and donations from some families, individuals and corporates, offered scholarships to some of these girls who have shown traits of determination, strength, resilience and tenacity of purpose despite their backgrounds.
Offering girls scholarship at Legacy is a major step towards creating leaders who will have a positive impact on society.
We currently have four girls on this scheme.
One scholarship beneficiary is a student from the Akuse community who completed Manya Kpongunor Presbyterian Junior High School. She has been raised by her mother single handedly, as she never got to know her father. She comes from a family of six children including herself. For a source of income, the mother sells fried yam. After completing her JHS she had to stay at home for two years, working to save money towards Senior High School. She has worked real hard to bridge the gap and catch up, and her progression is promising.
Another beneficiary lives with foster parents as her parents are divorced, and the mother could not bear the cost of the children's upkeep. She had to sell food stuff alongside schooling in Accra. She came in as an average student, and had to go through intense learning support as a measure of intervention to shore up her competencies. She has improved tremendously
Knowing the challenge of having students from different backgrounds being in the same class, the school offers extended programmes for students who need extra support, to ensure a collective progress and advancement. The uniqueness of our program does not end with the excellent training we give the girls, but we also ensure they are placed in good universities.
To our sponsors, the beneficiaries of this scheme, founders, board, management, staff and the entire school are truly grateful for your support.
