Two new PASCH-Partner Schools in Ghana
The PASCH - partner school is an initiative of the German Foriegn Ministry to promote the German language through teaching of the language in about 1,500 schools. In Ghana there are now three of those schools with totalling on about 150 students who take part in the initiative. Because German is not part of the main curricula of schools, the schools form German Clubs for students who are interested in the learning of the Language. The dedicated students and teachers are supported with educational and training materials and are eventually awarded scholarship for language courses in Germany.
