The Sabre Trust is a partnership between two independent but linked charities, registered in the UK with the Charity Commission and in Ghana with the Department of Social Welfare. We work in southern Ghana to improve the futures of poor and marginalised children.
Through ten years of grassroots work in rural schools and a long term relationship with the Ghana Education Service, the kindergarten sector has emerged as our priority intervention area. Kindergarten represents the start of formal education for 4 and 5 year old children, and the sector faces a number of challenges including poor learning environments and weak teacher capacity. Our Brighter Futures Programme provides an innovative and carefully considered response to these challenges, delivered through Building Better Schools and providing Transformational Teacher Training.
Our mission is to give young Ghanaians the best possible start to their education, enabling them to achieve their full academic potential and contribute to Ghana’s future economic development.
Our vision is an education system where all children in Ghana are engaged in active and play-based learning, which equips them with the skills and knowledge they need to progress through primary and junior high school and complete their basic education. This will help to bring about a critical shift in mind-set amongst teachers and pupils at all levels of the Ghana education system.
