INTELLIGENCE PLUS CHARACTER – THAT IS THE GOAL OF TRUE EDUCATION

-MARTIN LUTHER KING JNR

Smile Child Academy (SCA), a Kindergarten to Junior High School, was founded in 2002 by the late Shine Amedonoo and Nunya Dogbe to provide children in Lolito with access to quality academic foundation and character development. Their dream was to give back and invest in the next generation of leaders who will transform their communities and beyond. Most families paid nothing and some paid partial fees. After the sudden death of Shine, who contributed finances and construction skills to the development of SCA, the school has struggled to survive. Facilities at the school continue to deteriorate, SCA cannot afford to hire trained teachers, and the current school environment does not inspire creativity and critical thinking.
HELP TRANSFORM LIVES. GET INVOLVED.
Over 8 years Future of Africa has worked with student volunteers and community members to keep the school running. Together we have built 4 classrooms, a library and washroom facilities. We are currently working on plans to build a 20 bed boarding facility and raising funds to rebuild SCA to deliver high quality education and hands-on learning experiences to encourage creativity, critical thinking, and academic excellence to students from Kindergarten to Senior High School. Our new school, Volta International School (VIS) will create a nurturing environment for self-awareness and cultivate within students the humility to work hard and make the best use of available resources. VIS will prepare students for university education and/or vocational careers, while training students to live a life of wellbeing and purpose.

SCA has been given 61 acres of land by the local chief to show their commitment to education and community development. SCA offers education to some of our children and youth in the streets. Our plan is to build an environment that will totally transform their lives.

EVERY YEAR YOUNG LEADERS PARTICIPATE IN SERVICE LEARNING EXPERIENCES TO HELP US REBUILD SMILE CHILD ACADEMY
