Titagya Schools is Helping to Transform Early Education in Northern Ghana –
Join Us in Making this Happen!
Inspiring Impactful Change
At Titagya Schools, we are devoted to providing children with a high-quality early childhood education. Our pedagogical method of teaching children is designed to engage, excite, and inspire young learners. Our team of certified teachers is dedicated to creating an environment where children can learn through play while developing their social, emotional, and cognitive skills.
“Titagya” means “we have changed” in Dagbani (the local language in much of northern Ghana), and we are dedicated to changing young people’s lives by increasing the quality and availability of early education in this region of 4 million people. We operate high-impact pre-schools & kindergartens, train early education-level teachers in a more interactive pedagogy, and partner with the government to scale up the number of high-quality pre-schools and kindergartens in the North.
We currently operate four schools serving 300 students, which serve as demonstration labs for public schools. By collaborating with the government to increase the number and quality of pre-schools and kindergartens, we are aiming to improve the lifetime opportunities for the roughly 400,000 children between the ages of 3-5. Join us in transforming the educational prospects for an entire region!
Studies have repeatedly shown that strong early educational experiences increase children’s self-confidence, emotional intelligence, love of learning, and academic abilities. Many of these gains benefit children throughout their schooling, and there is evidence that people who attend pre-school earn more money throughout their careers. Our approach to early education emphasizes interactive learning, which has been demonstrated to be effective in repeated studies and which is rare in the region. Focusing on early education is the most impactful way to develop the next generation of doctors, entrepreneurs, teachers, informed voters, and leaders in Ghana.
Why Early Education?
Why Northern Ghana?
Northern Ghana is the poorest part of the country for a variety of historical reasons and the fact that it’s geographically far removed from the ports. Its literacy rates are also the lowest in the country, with an average adult literacy rate of 23% (less than half the national average) and a female adult literacy rate of 13%. In order for the region to thrive economically, it must have a stronger educational system – starting with early education – that prepares people to build businesses, teach the next generation, and hold politicians accountable.
