Well, the slum can boast of an elite bilingual private school although not attended by the kids in the slum.

In Nima, as in many of Africa’s slums, there is an overcrowded population living in precarious circumstances, occupying substandard housing structures with few, if any, public services to rely upon. The hallmarks of a slum are everywhere, from the tangles of small shacks to the abundance of dust and debris.

Children living in the slum face barriers to accessing and remaining in school that are accentuated by very low family incomes, poor infrastructure and high population density.

The town is popular because of its market – the Nima market.

However, the middle of this slum has one of Accra's most expensive private schools which runs a bilingual curriculum; German Swiss International School.

German Swiss International School was founded in Accra at the beginning of 1966.

Here is an inside view of the bilingual school.
