Vivian, a 23 year old Italian based Ghanaian citizen came to Ghana to visit her parents in Ghana and decided to have a Vocational course in Catering and Decorations. The parents were introduced by neighbours to FrankEve where Vivian has been trained for some months now.

Vivian has been trained at FrankEve in Culinary Artistry, Pastry Artistry, Event and floral Decor and cake Decoration and sugarcraft. Vivian wishes to tell all Ghanaian youth that if all you need is to have a skill or career, then she would like to introduce the house of skills to as many that are also looking for similiar advantages. She says FrankEve has really made her a woman indeed.

FRANKEVE! HOME OF VISIONARIES.  FRANKEVE! MY HOME, YOUR HOPE , AND OUR FUTURE.

DORIS SEND OFF 1
DORIS SEND OFF 1

FrankEve Foundation had a sendoff Ceremony for Doris Grewe a55 year old German volunteer who worked as a teacher at the Foundation for 6 months. During her time at the school, she was an instructor for self-defense and dancing. Students really enjoyed her class as she teaches with music. Doris taught them 3 different dancing for the school's graduation ceremony in the year 2013. Her time of volunteering came to an end and the entire school felt and seemed to have lost a teacher and mother as some students’ calls her mum. On the day of her sendoff; students, teachers and Doris herself shared tears together but one word she said that calm all the beneficiaries is that, she believes will come for a visit someday. The Director of the Foundation Mrs. Francisca Odifo Darko congratulated her on behalf of the organisation and handed over to her a gift of a glass wall hanger as a token of their love and a sign of appreciation. She furthermore thanked the organization Kolpin in Germany and ARA in Ghana for their continuous supply of volunteers.

Back of the classroom
Back of the classroom

FrankEve School resettlement at its permanent campus early 2005, was a miraculous and historical experience.
It began with 4 temporal wooden classroom shed ,catering for all the various courses offered at the center namely Cookery, Fashion Designing,Beading, Cake and Events Decoration.The wooden structures were to serve for maximum of 4 years and till date, hanging for usage due to lack of funds.

Truly, the structure is in the deplorable and dilapidated  state. This pose a lot of threat to trainee beneficiaries and staff. As we believe your generous supports and contributions over the period. Again we know of your passionate love shown in the time past.

Folks, you could go through the photos and look at the structure and send a donation to help the situation on the ground.You and I are alive, because, we are the solution for somebody some where.

Nothing is too small or big to donate.

Yea! go ahead and join other concerned people like you for the worthy course. When you do this,will keep your name in the historic records book for memorial on the school wall of fame. The project will need Ghc8,674.00 for completion.

Click on the donation bottom and support now!
We appreciate what you did.

Thanks.

What Some of the employed Beneficiaries say

Last week the Project Director, Francisca O. Darko  with two of the management to visit few of the beneficiaries who are gainfully employed as a routine of  the school management.

Francisca spoke to them and also asked them questions concerning how they are coping with life after graduating from FrankEve and this is what they had to say.

  1. My name is Gifty Ofori, am a past student of  FrankEve. Life after FrankEve has been very fulfilling and successful. I offered Culinary Artistry at FrankEve for a period of three years and successfully graduated with very good grades from Ghana Education Technical Examination and NABPTEX examination.

At the moment I have applied for Nursing Training program which am still waiting for the response so am now working with the most popular restaurant in Agona Swedru here as a front liner with the job responsibility to :

  • Check with customers to ensure that they are enjoying their meals and take action to correct any problems.
  • Escort customers to their tables.
  • Explain how various menu items are prepared, describing ingredients and cooking methods.
  • Serve food and/or beverages to patrons; prepare and serve specialty dishes at tables as required etc.

I want to say a big thanks to FrankEve for their contribution to who i am now. Indeed FrankEve we shall forever care.

 

2. Am an old student of FrankEve with the name Paulina Gurah. I offered Food Production Technology for a period of 3 years and I graduated successfully. Presently i am a cook at a big restaurant and this is what I do daily at my work place:  

i.  Inspect food preparation and serving areas to ensure observance of safe, sanitary food-handling practices.  

ii.Season and cook food according to recipes or personal judgment and experience.  

iii.Observe and test foods to determine if they have been cooked sufficiently, using methods such as tasting, smelling, or piercing them with utensils.  

iv. Weigh, measure, and mix ingredients according to recipes or personal judgment, using various kitchen utensils and equipment. 

v. Portion, arrange, and garnish food, and serve food to waiters or patrons.

I thank FrankEve for the training they gave me which has also given me life of independency. Now am able to support my kids sisters to also go to school. FrankEve! My home, your hope and our future.

 

3. Grace Darko is my name. I am also a past student of FrankEve. I offered 3 years Fashion Designing Technology and I graduated with very good grades. At the moment am working at FrankEve as a Clothing Construction and Millinery teacher at the first year class. I will work for a year to save money and further my education at one of the Polytechnics in Ghana. I love FrankEve for the great work they are doing for the youth, more especially women in Ghana and some of the neighbouring countries.

FrankEve all youth have done well but we excel them all.
