The World of Hope International (WOHI) is a charity organization established by a US-based Philanthropist, Monica Westin with the aim of changing the world and making difference in the lives of children in areas including human rights tolerance, non-violence, education and health awareness creation.
With dedication and much emphasis placed on child education, it has established a preschool in 2007 which was registered under the Ghana Education Service to holistically inculcate into children various skills including literacy, numeracy and creative arts as well as problem solving skills in a bid to empower them towards a better future.
As part of its charity agenda, WOHI waives mandatory school fee, including enrollment, school uniforms, and books for all the attendees.
Since its inception ten years ago, the school has grown exponentially raising the standards of child education in Samsam Odumase Village.
This was vividly confirmed by some Ghanaian experts owing to the academic prowess and preparedness demonstrated by some WOHI pupils over other school children who have attended preschool elsewhere.
