On the 17th September, Rob Atkin and I (Maire Tejani) went off to Ghana to continue the project with the money we had raised in the last few months. At Heathrow, our luggage was so over the limit due to us taking some tools to workers in the village of Aziedukope in the Volta Region of Ghana. On arrival in Accra, Ghana our luggage took about 30 minutes to arrive. Read more >>
This weekend Maire Tejani – Founder of Yaarah Schools returned from a great trip in Ghana. She travelled with another member of the Yaarah Schools Team Rob Atkin, who will be remaining in Ghana for the next 6 weeks.
While there, they helped begin the building of another three classrooms, sorted orders for tables, doors, and chairs for the classrooms and much more!

On Friday the 17th of September 2010, Maire Tejani (CEO and Founder of Yaarah Schools) and Rob Atkin began their journey to oversee the building of some more classrooms in the village of Adaklu Aziedukope. They managed to get all their luggage which included tool kits that would be distributed and some of the donated school books on without a problem. The image above shows the two of them with their boarding pass looking very excited to be getting away from the cold spells we’ve experiencing over here in the UK. They have now arrived safely and have started working on the project! There is no Internet access in the village but when they get back to Accra on weekend they are going to send us a big update of what they have been up to! So watch this space for more update coming soon!!!
