Discover Ghana Tours

We started our School Partnership Program in 2001.In 2002 we organised 3 school visits by UK students and teachers to their Ghanaian Link Schools. These UK schools have continued to visit Ghana every year and they have been joined by other schools with new links. We are also able to help with organising visits to Ghana for schools who have established their own links

School Partnerships

It is not difficult to think of good reasons to set up a link with a school in another country. The effect on pupils, teachers, support staff, parents and the wider community is immeasurable for both the countries involved.

At the same time, there are also many potential pitfalls and such projects can involve a lot of hard work.

In order to help schools to avoid these problems and to ensure that their work is not wasted we have developed a structured framework for partnerships that can help to make these sustainable.

We Can Help You Plan Your Visit To Ghana

A Real ‘Life Changing’ Experience

After going to Ghana my perspective changed somewhat and I changed my University degree from geography to Social Anthropology so I could study other cultures in detail!

An old school friend who also went on the trip changed from studying Maths at University to studying African Studies. 

I went to Sri Lanka last summer and volunteered on a teaching programme.

I spent much of Friday afternoon looking through the pictures of our Ghana trip on the school shared work. 

They had such a wonderful time!!  …and I have never seen KB speechless before in my life, but he was at a loss for words to describe the experience. DD said how much they loved you and how great you were with everything. 

Thank you so much for making my dream come true.  Pupils were still in tears when they arrived back at school to pick up their Art exams. 

You have given us all so much!
