Training 280 girls in Vocational Skills in Ghana

by Meet Kate Foundation

Final year students of FrankEve goes for three to six months industrial attachments based upon their course of study. Our 2015 batch is about to go for theirs and serious preparations are being made towards it. The Foundation is tirelessly searching for 1st class restaurants and hotels for them to offer their attachments which afterwards they will be graduated.

One main reason why we send our students for attachments is for them to be practically sound and also get to know the field work. This is the reason why the foundations is trying to build a restaurant so that attachments for the catering students Will be done there.

We say thanks to all our donors, without them we wouldn't have come this far.

As the saying goes work and no play makes Jack a dull boy, so FrankEve do organise games for the beneficiaries every term. This term's was lovely and superb. The entire beneficiaries were divided into four groups to contest for the competition in various games such as Sack Race, Atheletics, Skipping rope, Playing of Ludo, Dancing of Ghanaian local dancing and Hip pop etc.

The best group were given awards and the best student to win the competion was given Books, Pens and Mathematical set by Mrs Francisca Odifo Darko, the Dirctor of FrankEve.

FrankEve wishes to congratulate all our donors. We wish you success in all your endeavours.



Once again we are in another year and as we do every December, 45 girls and one boy are about to graduate on the 6th December, 2014. These students offered programs in Fashion Designing, Catering, Event and floral decor and Cake Decoration and sugarcraft.

During the program, the fashion design students will have a runway fashion show and will showcase beaded jeweleries, hats and bags and Africa print covered shoes. The caterers will have exhibition of foods, pastries, birthday and wedding cakes of all types.

 After the graduation, they will go for internship for 2 months and afterwards get a work.


Others would also have the opportunity to get admission

into the university, polytechnics, Nursing trainings and security agencies.We want to thank you for supporting us to give these ones a living and making them independent and economic vibrant.

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 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.
