Tuskegee International School

This is a school located in Balansa-Oyarifa, a few miles west of Accra, founded by an inspirational leader called Charles Yarfoh, originally from the Upper Western Region.  Charles was not able to attend school himself for many years, because he was expected to look after the cattle.  When he did get to school he made great progress, trained as an engineer and worked in the civil service.  He wanted to give the same opportunity as he had had himself to children in a rural area, so he founded the Tuskegee School.  He is being supported by Bev Greenberg, known as “Greenie”, from the US, and features in the website http://www.caringkidconnections.com.
