Our Executive Director, Tony Dogbe, and District Programme Officer, Jennifer Appiah, had the great pleasure of accompanying the Director, Schools and Instructions Division, Mrs Patty Assan, Haruna Mustapha Appiah Director of Education for Akuapem South and Joyce Ofosua Anim, District Kindergarten Coordinator, on a visit to kindergarten schools that Sabre has worked with.

The schools visited have been part of our Transformational Teacher Training project which we have been delivering in partnership with the district Ghana Education Service. Teachers at schools across six Eastern Region districts have received a year of training to equip them with the skills and confidence to deliver the play-based curriculum.

The head teachers and teachers at the school were thrilled to be visited and the teachers demonstrated good understanding and use of the play-based approach for learning.

Director Patty shared that “It has been an interesting visit. I should have come here a long time ago; it’s been very educative. I am requesting that Sabre roll this support to all other districts. If all Ghanaian kindergarten classrooms are like these, our learners’ foundation will be better”.


Executive Director Tony Dogbe said that “It has been fantastic for Director Patty to see the great work happening in these schools, which could not have been achieved without the partnership of the district Ghana Education Service and the dedicated support it has provided so far to facilitate the teacher training programme. The success of this programme is built on the strong relationship that has existed, since the development of the Kindergarten Operational Plan in 2012, between the Ghana Education Service and Sabre. We are very grateful for this and it has been so valuable that the Ghana Education Service provided space for Sabre’s team in their district education office so we have been able to work side by side. We agreed with Director Patty that, like Ghanaian and Nigerian movies, there will be a part two of this visit, the next time to schools in more rural communities. Sabre looks forward to these visits in the future and we will continue to work together to transform young children’s lives.”
