Helping Ghanaian children through a love of reading

Eugenia Tachie-Menson set up a charity in Ghana 10 years ago to help children improve their spelling and literacy.

Despite many challenges, the charity has helped thousands of children, with one child even reaching the finals of the Scripps Spelling Bee in Washington in the United States.

This is part of a regular series on African Women You Need to Know.
