When Message to the Nations began renovating the Mary E. McKelvy International School three years ago, there was no electricity in the village of Paninamisa, Ghana, West Africa. Because of the generous gifts that poured into the organization, our staff bought floor tiles, ceiling fans, windowpanes, cement and two brand new computers.
We installed electrical wiring so the school and computer lab could connect to the electricity polls. This also gives village residents an opportunity to have electricity if they choose to provide a hook-up.
According to Dan B. Antwi, District Director of Ghana Education Service, there is no other computer lab in schools in any rural villages of Ghana–only in the Capital of Accra or larger cities. His wish is to recognize the Mary E. McKelvy International School as a model school because of the great work that Message to the Nations has carried out.
