Our Story The Wulugu project was founded in 1993 by Lynne Symonds, a science teacher and wife of a Norfolk farmer. It develop out of a chance metting between Lynne and Karimu Nachina at a science Comference. Lynne was amazed to hear about the problems faced with educating girls in the Northern area of Ghana and returned to Norfolk, determined to try and help Karimu, the headmaster of a new school.
Initially the fundraising was to help Wulugu Secondary School, hence the charitys name. After providing books for the school, a hostel was built for 120 girls from the surrounding area to keep them safe at school. Twenty years ago few girls were educated at all and the figures showed that only 5% of women in Ghana could read or write. Award from Downing Street The Wulugu Project founder has received a 'Points of Light' award from the Prime Minister. This is a great honour and reflects the tremendours work over the years by our teams in Ghana and UK and the strong support from donors. We estimate that it has cost us approximately £6 per head to ensure education for over quarter of million children. A School for Kokpeng VillageVillage women are helping build a school with toilets for this very deprived district. This is a (literally) ground-breaking project as we have been given funding to build a strengthened building, hoping to delay the normal weather damage and so save money in the long run.
How We Are Going To Use The Money For. We need this £6000 support from every one to help build new hostel and supplies books for the wulugu secondary school and also provide good quality of sanitation for some the societies who lack social amenities. Some of the support will be use for providing capital for some of the women who lives very poor in the society to help them leaves very good life. Our founder Lynne Symonds who now in Ghana is very exicited from this support to help her accomplished her goal project wulugu in Northern part of Ghana. Thanks every body for supporting our project. May God richely bless you all.
