11-year-old author builds e-library for Methodist school in Ghana

Sarah Afua Kittoe, an 11-year-old British-Ghanaian author, has recently fulfilled a promise she made months ago to build a library for a school in Ghana.

During her inaugural visit to Ghana at the age of ten, she pledged her support to Saint Paul’s Methodist Preparatory School in Tema. Sarah has now completed a full e-library and computer lab for the school, with plans in progress for a physical book library.

Sarah’s philanthropic journey began early, as she had already authored and published three books by the age of nine. These books include “The Friendship Club”, “Lindsey and the Blue Fox”, and “Sarah Kittoe’s Colouring Book” for toddlers.

Her fourth book, “Ama and the Lost Key”, which features a Ghanaian theme, is set to be launched on Saturday, April 6, 2024, at Croydon Library in London. Sarah donates all proceeds from her book sales to charity, supporting Centrepoint, a charity chaired by Prince William, and the Wednesday Club at West Croydon Methodist Church.

Sarah’s commitment to Saint Paul’s Methodist Preparatory School in Tema was sparked by the poor condition of the school library. Determined to make a difference, she donated copies of her books to the school and embarked on creating a modern library.

In just six months, she completed the e-library project, equipping the school with 20 new HP Desktop Computers preinstalled with Jemdroid Learning Apps. Sarah also provided new desks and chairs for the library and shipped 13 large boxes of books to Ghana, setting the stage for the physical library project.

In London, Sarah initiated a successful fundraiser, receiving donations of books and funds from generous individuals and institutions to support her cause. With the release of “Ama and the Lost Key,” Sarah announced that proceeds from its sales would also be directed towards charitable causes.

Her latest book takes readers beneath Ghana’s dusty sands, where a radiant key lies lost. The story follows Ama, a young girl on a quest to unlock the secrets guarded by this enigmatic key. While the key promises unimaginable wealth and life-altering potential, Ama’s journey unfolds with lessons on unity within Ghana’s golden land.
