Kakenya made a deal with her father, She would undergo the traditional rite if he would let her go to high school.. …when she was accepted to Randolph-Macon Women’s College in Virginia, she negotiated with her village elders to do what no girl had ever done before, leave her village to go to college in the US.

Deeply proud of her heritage and of her community, Ntaiya returned to the village after school and worked with her elders to establish a school for girls there. It’s the educational journey that has altered the destiny of many young women. In 2009 the KakenyaCenterforExcellence was established by Kakenya they have A primary grade boarding school just for girls, the curriculum focuses on academics, leadership and female empowerment, along with cultural preservation and life skills. Ntaiya also works with donors to provide scholarships for others.

Don Felder, a wealthy African American businessman, has paid to build and equip schools in rural areas of Ghana.  He’s given some students scholarships to attend those schools and funded water and other projects throughout the West African country. Much of that work has gone unnoticed by the general public, but his generosity has had a significant impact on the lives of those he’s helped.  There’s Mary Sassa, a tall, soft-spoken woman, who’s about to complete a Master’s degree in human resources next July. Sassa, 28, grew up in the remote town of Obodan, where getting a high school diploma was an unusual accomplishment for a girl, let alone an advanced degree. “I’ve not seen any girl who has achieved where I am now. None have graduated from college,” Sassa said. “Some of them are willing to climb higher, but the money is a problem.” Read more here.
