About this cause

About our cause

The Achimota Trust is a charitable Trust which was established in 1987 by the Old Achimotan Association in the United Kingdom (OAA (UK)) to provide assistance and support for Achimota School Ghana. It was in 1985 that the Association, chaired at that time by former Assistant Headmaster Harry Allen, decided that it could and should be more than simply a social gathering and should take active steps in furthering the activities of the School: it was becoming clear from reports from Akoras regularly visiting Ghana or visiting the UK from Ghana that the School needed support from its alumni (including former staff) if it was to retain its illustrious place at the forefront of education in Ghana and West Africa. Enjoyable tea parties were all very well, but they should be augmented by activity which would be to the direct benefit of the School. To this end, at the meeting of 13 April 1985 they resolved to create, under the auspices of the OAA (UK), a charitable trust to be known as The Achimota Trust. The Trust was established under a Trust Deed dated 20 December 1986 and registered with the Charity Commission on 28 January 1987.
