PAMBE Ghana is an Oklahoma-based 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization that supports a bilingual school in a remote and underserved area of Northern Ghana, West Africa. La’Angum Learning Center currently serves more than 260 students in grades pre-K through sixth, and graduated their first class this summer. Students are from a variety of faiths, four remote villages, different tribal backgrounds, but they share similarities: their families value and are willing to work for their children’s education, their parents are poor subsistence farmers, and most cannot read or write. So far, every child who has started at the Learning Center continues to attend or has graduated–no child has dropped out.
