Who we are
The trustees at Learning Link Ghana are committed to their work to help create a brighter future for children in Ghana, so much so, that they all give their time and effort on a completely voluntary basis, ensuring that all the money raised for the charity goes towards improving the school and giving even more children the chance of an education that will change their lives.
We'd like to introduce all our trustees to you. If you would like to help by giving some of your time and becoming a trustee for Learning Link Ghana, please get in touch.
Frank Nkansa-Dwamena - Founder
Frank founded Learning Link Ghana in 1999, by inviting several of his ex-colleagues from the London Borough of Brent to join him in this endeavour. Frank lived in Britain for 30 years and studied for his degree, B.Sc. (Econs.) at the University of Stirling, before working in Bristol and London and finally as Head of Special Education in the London Borough of Brent until his departure in 1997. His father, Nana Nkansa- Dwamena founded the City of Kumasi School in 1966 and remained as Principal until his death in 1998, at which time Frank returned to Ghana to become the Managing Director of the school. At present, Frank commutes between Kumasi and London.
