A couple of weeks ago five new students were selected to receive scholarships to help them with their studies at senior high school. It is good news that the Ghanaian government is now providing increased assistance to young people to attend senior high school by covering the school fees. This means the scholarships provided by Friends of Wechiau will help students cover the additional costs of uniforms, equipment, and additional fees charged. It also meant that the amount of the scholarship was reduced and the number of students selected was increased to five.
The students were presented with the scholarships in the presence of representatives of the sanctuary management board and their parents and guardians.
