The School currently has a student population of one Hundred and Eighty (180) mainly Females, and had since grown into a campus with permanent classrooms, A girl Hostel, recreational and utility facilities and an Assembly Hall that doubles up as a Church Hall on about four (4) acre land. It has since its establishment trained over three Hundred and fifty (350) students in cookery, Food and Beverage Services as well as Fashion Designing.
The students of FrankEve have good chances to become supportive to their families or husbands. Many old students are now self- supporting or work in stars Hotels in Kumasi or Accra cities in Ghana. In villages they live exemplary to other young peer girls and this motivates them on how to be successful through a vocational training. Many girls stop school after junior high school and get pregnant.
Training at the institute goes beyond the curriculum. Students are exposed to trainings in “life questions”. The girls talk about contraception, HIV and how to protect themselves or how to behave to people with HIV. For the leadership of the school, it is important that, all girls learn to live confidently, self-determined life and appreciate the need not to be dependent on husbands and others but support them.
The girls should leave the school self-confident, independent and responsible-minded for their future and the society they are living in.
Central region is recorded in the Ghana Development report as the 3rd on the poverty Scale and also leads in HIV/AIDS Prevalence rate in Ghana. This is from the 2012 National AIDS Commission Report. These justify the need for such intervention to be initiated among others to alleviate the effect.
