The Menaye School of Hope

The Menaye School of Hope, located in Agona Asafo, Central Region, was established on September 7, 2000. Then, the school lacked amenities, so Menaye adopted the school in 2004 after she won Miss Universe Ghana to help build a better learning environment for the children.
