"...the right kind of education will produce leaders that the country needs..."
Upon visiting Ghana and seeing a number of children selling goods on the street during school hours, founder, Janet Jones Preston, soon found out why. Some of the families could not afford to pay their young one's education fees and therefore did not enroll them in school. Feeling compelled to do something, Mrs. Jones Preston decided to create a school for the families who needed it most. After refinancing the loan on her home in 2004, and enlisting the help of her son, Akili Mosi Secka, Jones purchased the land that is now The People’s School for Positive Education. Under the support of Jones, private donors, and the operational leadership of Secka, the school has blossomed from having a modest three classrooms and grades, to an educational center holding 260 students with hopes to expand!
