The COVID-19 pandemic had a profound negative impact on Ghanaian society. Education in particular suffered; a level of over 700,000 students were out of school for months, as were their teachers.
To address this, Vine Christian High, a leading private Christian school in Ghana organised a free online Cambridge International Education for grades 7 and 8. They also included students in JHS 1 and JHS 2 with the Ghana Education Service model. This free online programme covered major subject areas including Biology, Mathematics, Chemistry, English Language, Global Perspectives, ICT, Geography, French & Physics. In addition to this, they designed projects to enable these students to acquire interpersonal skills for high-level collaboration, harnessing digital technology and Christ-centered attitude for global transformation. These lessons were delivered through a virtual classroom, where students interacted with their facilitators and other students in the class.
It was impressive to see how, in about 9 months after the country’s lockdown, VCHS was back in operation — running a hybrid system from both home and school. Undeniably, the school thrived on the capacity of its teachers. When Agro Kings learned about how the school’s administration was combining their human resources, technology, funds, and knowledge to positively impact the lives of its students and families at large, we decided to support them by donating a large number of Nana’s Rice bags.
Buoyed by our founder’s guiding principles, we are committed to supporting institutions and individuals amidst the various challenges brought by the COVID-19 pandemic
