Painting the Fascia Boards of the School (Update: July,2018)

The Prince & Princess Academy Project Team painted the fascia boards of the school building with green oil paint which will help repel insects and moisture. The next activity is to plaster the walls and floor of the classrooms with concrete before the ceiling and electrical works will be completed. Estimates of the next activity will be posted on the project website soon.
We are most grateful to the supporters and all those buying our project African fabric shirts and postcards.
Thank you.

Hello everyone!
We have a new update for you. We are in the process of painting the fascia boards of the school building with green oil paint which will help repel insects and moisture. While our project supervisor was painting, he fell from the scaffolding! Fortunately, he wasn’t badly injured, but in Prince Sisu’s attempt to save him from falling, he also suffered some minor scrapes and bruises. Oops!

We are most grateful to all supporters who have helped us get this far and continue to support us. We will post a video update of the event soon!

African Fabrics Tops (Shirts) For Fundraising

The Prince and Princess Academy Project Team have come out with a creative way to raise funding for the project. Our team member Princess Salma and a friend of the project Zenab, are talented in designing customized tops using African fabrics. The Team has nine (9) kinds of beautiful fabrics (cotton material) which are showcase in the photos below. We are selling each top (shirt) for $35, €30 or £26 (this includes the shipping cost) and 70% of the profit will go to support the school building project. The tops (shirts) can be made for both men and women including children. We will also include some postcards from Ghana.

One of our fellow team member from Germany, Tanja, who was excited to purchase one for herself to celebrate her birthday – this is the one she is wearing in the photos! Over the years, Prince Sisu and his Co-founder Gadafi have designed these beautiful tops (shirts) for friends across the world. We hope you will check out our photos and message us about purchasing one of these tops! You are not only buying a beautiful shirt from Ghana but you are also contributing to the building of a school which will provide a brighter future for many children.  As you might guess, supplies are limited, so contact us soon to make a request! You can also contact the Co-founder Prince Sisu on facebook to make an order.  Click here for more photos of the designed tops.

Hello everyone, we have another update for you!

On June 5th we were able to begin the process of wiring the classrooms! With your donations, we have purchased the electrical materials including wires, pipes, socket boxes other accessories for the electrical work. At this point, we are able to pay half of the payment for the labor. The electricians will not route the wires through the piping until we are ready to install the plywood ceiling. Your continued support will help us complete this portion of the project! We will be sharing some photos of the piping installation along with this update.

Hello everyone! In the past few weeks, construction has been moving along quickly! We have been able to fill all of the classrooms with gravel sand, and we are finishing watering and compacting it so that we can top off the sand before pouring the concrete for the floors. The ceiling joists are complete, and we will post a video soon to show you the work being done on the last two classrooms. As mentioned in our last update, we have collected estimates for the electrical materials, including labor costs for the electrical work. We also have estimates for constructing the ceiling with plywood and ceiling buttons; the plywood has already been purchased. These estimates are listed below.
