nKoso partners with low-fee private schools

Anna Owusu, April 04, 2013

Students in rural areas of developing countries are often at a disadvantage in obtaining an education. While the Ghanaian government provides public schools for children in Ghana, many of them lack resources, are overcrowded and don’t demonstrate staff accountability.

Additionally, families still need to cover the cost of school uniform, exam fees and potentially lunch and transportation costs. If given the choice, parents prefer to send their children to low-fee private schools, a growing trend in developing countries.

While parents may struggle financially to afford such schools, they prefer and are confident in the quality of education that their child is receiving. We believe that assisting children to attend low-fee private schools will help strengthen the individual, their family and their community.
