‘I Want My School to be Big’: Educator Shares Dreams on ‘GOOD’ Blog

By Lauren Williamson

Comfort Appiah was so secretive when she started a school in her home, she didn’t even tell her husband.Comfort Appiah opened a school in her home in 1998. It now serves more than 800 students with the help of Opportunity International loans.

Fifteen years later, that school now serves 800 children in Accra, Ghana. (And yes, her husband knows.)

An Opportunity International loan allowed Comfort to grow the school from its humble roots to approach her goal of educating thousands.
Comfort wrote about her journey from underground educator to official school proprietor for the online community GOOD.

“I want my school to be big,” she says in an accompanying video. “It will be thousands—thousands. And it will be well known in all the countries.”
