The Meyah Preparatory School was established in Medie in the Ga West Municipality of Greater Accra region of Ghana in the year 2004 after the retirement of principal Moses Emerson from the army in 2000 and subsequent relocation to Medie.

A majority of inhabitants of Medie are settler farmers whose farm lands have been badly degraded by the activities of sand winning (the digging of sand from the earth mainly for building construction). Presently most of their livelihood depends upon either cracking stones at the quarries or buying and selling of fresh corn brought in by middlemen from other farming areas. It is sometimes pathetic to see some of these children helping their parents at the stone quarries or winning sand. Some of the little girls take to prostitution, due to neglect, where they are often abused. Sometimes these women, with babies strapped at their back, are seen carrying corn from other communities for small fees to make their living.

The plight of these people is not different from the situation Moses Emerson experienced in other conflict areas in the African continent, such as Rwanda, Liberia and Sierra Leone. Moses was so moved when he saw little children with tremendous talent and potential being wasted just because of the situation in which they found themselves. Moses therefore decided to do something in his small way to alleviate the situation, hence the idea to establish a school to forestall evil-minded elements from taking advantage of the children’s plight like what is happening in other parts of Africa.
