Grace Manieson-Annancy, founder of ‘Grace’s Place’ RIP

 

I’m very sad to have heard the news today that Grace Manieson-Annancy has passed away, at home, in Akosombo, Ghana. After retiring as Principal of Akosombo International School, where she nurtured hundreds of grateful pupils, she devoted herself to serving the poorer local children by teaching them to read. 

She started with just a few books but her readers flocked to her and she turned no-one away. With the help of friends in both Ghana and the UK, she set about building a permanent reading centre where children could learn in safety. We know it as ‘Grace’s Place’, of course, and it will stand for many years to come as testimony to a teacher whose love for children drove her to greater and greater efforts on their behalf. 

We’re thinking tonight of Grace’s husband, Archdeacon Felix Annancy, her sisters and her wider family, as well as the many, many former students of AIS who will be in mourning at her passing. 
Thank God for Grace. May she rest in peace and rise in Glory.
