This research investigates the nature of missionary education for girls at the Agogo Presbyterian Women’s College of Education (APWCE) in Agogo, Ghana. The study will use a qualitative research methodology to collect opinions from a range of stakeholders, including alumni, current administrators, tutors, and students. A variety of data collection techniques, including focus groups, interviews, and document analysis will be used, to compile thorough data. The results of this study will add to the body of knowledge already available on missionary education in Ghana, especially as it relates to girls’ education. It could also influence educational policies, procedures, and interventions that enhance the standard and accessibility of education for girls.
