Marist School in Sabin-Akrofrom

The Marist Preparatory/Junior High School in Sabin-Akrofrom, Ashanti Region consists of 6 infrastructural blocks (1 Admin Block, 4 Classroom Blocks, 1 Computer & Library Block), but did not have the infrastructure for teaching science. This original configuration was necessary to meet the initial requirements and to make the school operational. In the geographical area where the Marist school is located, there are no other facilities that provide a practical space for the possibility of studying Sciences. Therefore, the students are deprived of an essential educational component that is indispensable to their socio-cultural development in the short/medium term.

The establishment of this project, apart from meeting an advanced educational need, also supports the labor market which increasingly requires expertise in the scientific field. The direct beneficiaries are 700 students, from the 4th primary to Junior High School. The whole facility of the Marist Preparatory/Junior High School is considered a highly effective educational center supporting boys and girls living in remote and rural areas. The structure, which is recognized by the Ministry of Education, has an excellent reputation for the didactic results that the students achieve.
