The school has taken as its mission to help every child attend school in the village of Mantukwa and its surroundings. The project has a double purpose: to develop language teaching in the Sunyani Mantukwa region (Brong Ahafo region) in Ghana and to support the economic development of the region to help the villagers achieve better socio-professional success.
The official language in Ghana has been until now English. However, thanks to a very francophile president, Mr. NANA AKUFO-ADDO, the Ghanaian government plans to make French the second official language of the country.
His ambition is to develop economic exchanges with neighbouring countries (Côte d’Ivoire to the west, Togo to the east and Burkina Faso to the north) and to improve job opportunities for Ghanaians. The introduction of the French language to the school system will strengthen trading relationships with French-speaking countries and, as a logical conclusion, increase Ghana’s influence within ECOWAS (Economic Community of West African States).
In September 2019 the newspaper “Le Monde” wrote:
« The French language is on the rise in Ghana »
From now on, nothing stands in the way of the foundation of a trilingual school (English, French, Twi) in the village of Mantukwa!
