The Wisdom Preparatory Academy is located in Adedenkpo, in the old city of Accra, Ghana. It is an old mansion that once was important, and which has since been transformed into a school with classrooms for young people, with more than 300 students. Some of the building were partially damaged by time and by the playing children living in the neighborhood. Confronting the old building is a large courtyard with informal houses where families grow their young children. This project is a tribute to all children who continue to believe.
