The King's Village - Northern Ghana

Hucknall National Primary School is linked with the King's Village in Northern Ghana.

We will sponsor a child at The King's Village Ghana so they can access education in rural Northern Ghana.

Only 1 in 20 adults in Northern Ghana are literate.  We’re providing schooling to children, transforming their lives and the lives of their families.

It costs £15/month (£180/year) to provide education.

It all started with a small church

The King's Village was pioneered by Ben and Marion Owusu-Sekyere. Ben comes from Ghana and Marion is from Radlett, England. They began their work in Tamale in 1999 and have lived and worked in Northern Region since then.

They started with a small church in their house in 2000, while visiting and working in various communities. They were greatly impacted by the living condition of the people and the deep poverty in the area and felt inspired to help the people in the most felt needs especially in the area of Education, Health, Water and Sanitation. With the help of donors and sponsors they acquired 43 acres of land next to their house from the local Chiefs and people of Zangbulung to use for a project. Since then they have built a hospital, school, nutrition centre and staff residences on this land.


A UK Charity, established 2019

Many UK charities, churches and individuals have supported The King's Village, and to improve direct communication and support a UK charity was established in 2019.
