1940s

Mrs. Ofuatey-Kodjoe acquired a park for Guides for their various activities and it became known as ‘Guide Park’. This park was originally the pig farm for Achimota College and was given to the Ghana Girl Guides Association through sympathy by the then Principal Rev. R. W. Stopford. Throughout her hard work, Mrs. Ofuatey-Kodjoe was made the Acting Colony Commissioner and life President of the Association in 1949 and she used the Guide Law as her working document. This made her persevere though her patience was stretched beyond its limits. Yet she survived it all with distinction. She had 76 girls she met at her father’s residence in Accra.
