An introduction in 80 seconds
Benedicta is a little girl that we know in the village of Mettoh in northern Ghana. She is four years old. She will never forget the year 2013. It was the year that her father died.
But 2013 was also the year that a school was opened in her village, funded by Savannah Education Trust. During the construction process her father acted as a watchman on the school site, and allowed the tools to be stored in his house. Now, in his absence, the school is serving his daughters. The new school in Mettoh is very close to Benedicta’s house and she attends it every day with her seven year old sister, Inpeng.
