2018 Annual Report

Text Box:

























Dear Friends,

In the past nine years, M.O.P. has transformed a group of disadvantaged youth into a family of intelligent students. Students who were once living lives of hopeless despair are now filled with dreams of bright futures thanks to education.

Education is the primary focus of Mawuvio’s Outreach Programme. We believe that education is the key to ending the cycle of poverty; poverty that is rampant throughout Ghana. The majority of our students are the first in their families to attend school and learn how to read, write and make sense of numbers. This year we provided seventy-nine youth, 38 males and 41 females with a basic Kindergarten thru Junior High School. Achieving basic literacy skills has given youth more self-confidence, self-determination and desire to continue their education journey.

All youth also participated in at least one after- school programme during the year. After -school programming was designed to expose youth to additional learning in the forms of arts, music, culture and sports. Participation in these programmes provided students with a strengthened sense of community with one another, opportunity to acquire skills which can be useful to them in their futures and further exposure to the world at large.

The past year marked our fourth year operating two facilities, our outdoor nursery and kindergarten school in Kissemah and our primary school located at Ayikuma serving day and boarding students. As we look forward into the future, we thank all the individuals both in Ghana and abroad that have helped management, staff and students continue to uphold the mission and vision of our organization. We foresee Mawuvio’s Outreach Programme to have many successful years to come.


Yours Faithfully,


Eric Kwame Agoe                                                                   Renee Farwell
