Mount Mary Kindergarten School was set up in an under-privileged area of Accra; in 2001 there were 116 pupils in the school, ranging from two and a half to five years. Some of these children would move to the primary school the following September, but new pupils were expected to bring the number up to 150. The children were mainly of single working mothers who could not look after them during the day. Without the School these children would be on the streets.
Mrs. Elizabeth Ezan and her husband had provided the funding to put up the building; they had put up water tanks as there was no water in the area. The parents paid something but could afford very little. Ghana School Aid grants in 2001 and 2003 contributed to building another classroom and providing more tanks and water. GSA would like to pay tribute to the hard work and generosity of Mrs. Ezan who had taken early retirement to set up the school as a private initiative, having previously established a successful Trade School for teenagers.
