At Tigo, we passionately believe education holds the key to the successful development of any nation. Over the years, education has been a priority for us, and most importantly to see to the welfare and wellbeing of children.
Our current flagship project ‘Shelter 4 Education’ is aimed at providing both infrastructure and technology support to basic schools in rural Ghana.
Under this project, we have renovated 2 schools and built 4 schools at select deprived communities across the country.
Each school building consists of a 6 unit classroom block, headmaster’s office, staff common room and public place of convenience. In addition, the select schools also received school uniforms, sandals, exercise books and other learning materials.
The beneficiary schools include:
Obeng Yaw Basic school in Adeiso in the Eastern Region
Tupaa Basic School in the Ga South Municipality of the Greater Accra Region
St Joseph Basic School in Obuasi of the Ashanti Region
Ehiawoanwu Basic School in Ejura of the Ashanti Region
The African Faith Primary School in Banda Ahenkro in the Brong Ahafo Region
Dimabi L/A Basic School in the Northern Region.
Shelter 4 Education has brought relief to tens of thousands of children, teachers and communities that did not have the infrastructure for learning, and serves as an incentive to encourage parents to send their wards to school.
