The name is Omega, like the very last letter of the Greek alphabet, but this story is one about absolute excellence in terms of innovation, culture, and technology.
It all began some years ago in Ghana from an idea by Ghanian Ken and Lisa Donkoh and James Tooley, a British professor of education policy. The aim was bringing low-cost quality education to girls and boys from poor and needy families unable to provide adequate education for their children.
The solution they came up with is simple and innovative: a 'pay as you learn' approach featuring an all-inclusive daily fee based on the actual attendance including tuition, hot lunch, a set of workbooks, two sets of uniforms, mid and end of term assessment, health insurance and even a deworming program. Besides, each student is given 15 free school days per year, and there is also a scholarship program in place to help the least advantaged students pay for a portion of their fees.
