total goal


Torkoni Bethel Methodist Junior High School is the only Junior High school in Torkorni a suburb of Hohoe municipality. Though the school has being functioning for the past 12 years, the school cannot boast of any good classroom. Any time it rains the school has to close down because the classroom gets flooded. Between the hours of 11:00-13:00 hrs GMT the Pupils have to go out of the class and study under a mango tree due to intense heat. The school has population of 113, with 69 girls.


The project would provide a well ventilated 3-unit classroom block for Torkoni Bethel Methodist JHS. It will also provide adequate and a congenial atmosphere for effective teaching and learning. It would also help to address this canker of closing down the school anytime the clouds gather. The provision of head teacher's office would also provide them a space to keep their, teaching and learning materials and text books, instead of keeping it in the headteachers house, which is 2.4 km away.

Long-Term Impact

The long term effects is that about 500 plus children in Torkoni and other communities nearby who benefit from the school, would have access to quality and uninterrupted education and would ultimately lead to poverty reduction. It would also help to increase the number of contact hours pupils receive per academic year and this would help improve students performance and boost their confidence. In the long-run about 1,000 pupils would have been educated and lifted out of extreme poverty.
