Mount Mary Schools Story by Charles Cann
I set out to find a school with kids who needed help in line with the mission of the Tropical Ghana Spirit Fund. In February 2008, God answered my prayer and brought me in contact with Mrs. Ezan, founder of Mount Mary Schools. After a phone conversation with Mrs. Ezan and a letter later, I was very grateful for the blessing – Mount Mary Schools' vision fell in line with Tropical Ghana Spirit Fund’s mission.

According to Mrs. Ezan, in the last 12 years of her 38 years career as a teacher in the Ghana Education Service, she headed a vocational/technical institute in Accra where deprived children in deprived areas in Accra received training in various vocational/technical disciplines to give such children vocations for life.

"Following the experience I have had in looking after the under-privileged students, I decided to establish the Mount Mary Schools in a deprived area in Ofankor, a suburb in Accra to encourage and give children in that area an opportunity to acquire education during their formative years in an ideal surroundings," said Mrs. Ezan in her letter.

Upon visiting Mount Mary, I learned at first hand the plight of the kids attending the school. I had no option than to act right away. Three kids in Mount Mary Schools' maiden Junior High School graduating class were the first to receive assistance from the Tropical Ghana Spirit Fund.

Over the years, Tropical Ghana has continued to support kids at Mount Mary Schools and used that experience as a learning curve to improve the idea of indirectly encouraging a child in Ghana to stay in school through Tropical Ghana's activities.
