D.K Boateng Memorial School envisions making a great impact in the lives of children in Ghana and West Africa at large, as a result, the educational institution designed for children from creche to first-grade has embarked on a fundraising effort to this effect.
Their mission is to play a unique and major role in the landscape of educational services available to children in Koforidua, the capital of Ghana’s Eastern Region, where they are located.
“Children who otherwise did not have the means to go to school are now enrolled with us at an affordable price thanks to the support we receive from our supporters and sponsors,” said Mrs. Irene Arthur, a Co-Founder of the school. “This is why we feel it is necessary for us to embark on more fundraising activities here at D.K Boateng Memorial, so more of these kids can be able to get the opportunity to basic education.” Mrs. Arthur continued.
In October 2012 the school started with only 10 students, today it enrolls about a 100% of that number. Named after Dickson Kwame Boateng, a man who held education in high esteem, the school has worked hard to keep alive Mr. Boateng’s founding vision to make sure that children are able to attend school. D.K Boateng memorial believes this vision is now ready to accommodate more students and ideas.
The school is committed to equipping students with the tools they need for academic, personal and social achievement, as well as ensuring the educational growth of each child by providing reliable and quality services. They are doing this at very elementary stages because they feel exposure to quality education earlier in a child’s life helps build a strong foundation for their future.
As part of innovative ways to raise funds, D.K Boateng Memorial School has begun involving social media as a way to reach potential sponsors to not only contribute but to explore networking opportunities and exchanges. “We want to see what lies out there in other parts of the world that could be used to prop efforts we are making and building on here in Ghana,” — Mrs. Doris Boateng, Co-Founder, Manager, and present administrator of the school.
“We have over the years been blessed by people, institutions, and organizations that believe in and share our passion to help provide quality education to children. This has helped provide infrastructure, logistics, expertise and most importantly, love to our benefactors and this is where we also gain our joy,” said Mrs. Boateng.
Today the school continues to feel the urgent need to do more and reach many because it believes the need and power of education are very vital for the development of young ones especially in today’s fast-advancing world of technology. “Do not hesitate to let us know if you or someone you know will be interested in joining this movement to maintain the legacy and dream of D.K. Boateng for the sake of these children. Your donation will go a long way to get us all there.” Mrs. Boateng appealed.
