We are supporting the project to establish a school for the children of Sefwi Obeng-Mim village, a community in the Juabeso District in the Western Region of the Republic of Ghana. The community is located in the middle of the Krokosue Forest Reserve under Sefwi Wiawso Traditional area.

The community has a population of about thousand five hundered people which are mainly peasant cocoa farmers. Their situation has become very bad since the end of 2016, when the world price of cocoa dropped sharply.

Children in the village have to travel miles to school. Building a schoolhouse in the village allows the children to be schooled in their village. When it rains they cannot travel to another village as it is to dangerous for them.

The Project has been initiated by the local King Oheneba Nana Kwame Obeng II and loyal supporters of the Royal House of Sefwi Obeng-Mim and International Pestalozzi Society. We are helping educate the children in the village with a new school so they do not have to travel miles away.
