11-year-old author Sarah Kittoe publishes 4th book, completes E-library for Tema school

An 11-year-old British-Ghanaian kid author, Sarah Afua Kittoe, who promised to build a library for a school in Tema two years ago, has completed a full e-library and computer lab for the school and she is in the process of completing a physical book library as well.

Sarah was nine years old when she made the promise in 2022, on her first visit to Ghana, which took her on a tour to several media houses in the country, and later to her father’s alma mater, Saint Paul’s Methodist Preparatory School in Tema, where she made the promise to support the school.

At age nine, little Sarah had already written and published three books: ‘The Friendship Club’, ‘Lindsey and the Blue Fox’, and ‘Sarah Kittoe’s Colouring Book’ for toddlers.

But currently, she has completed and published a fourth book with a Ghanaian theme, titled ‘Ama and the Lost Key’ which launches at Croydon Library in London, on Saturday, April 6, 2024.

So it did not come as a surprise to her parents, Albert and Nozipho Kittoe when she elected to extend some of her kindness to the Ghanaian children at Saint Paul’s Methodist Preparatory School in Tema by refurbishing their school library, which got her devastated during her visit.

She has already donated copies of her own books to the school, and now she is delivering on her promise to provide the school with a modern library.

Sarah has so far made good her promise to the school by installing 20 new HP Desktop Computers preinstalled with Jemdroid Learning Apps, which has relevant learning materials from kindergarten all the way to the tertiary level.

She has also not stopped putting all the proceeds from the sale of her books into her charity projects.

Now the new book, “Ama and the Lost Key” is here, and Sarah says the proceeds from that will also go to charity.
