School Supplies.  The Kuntu Village Nkosohen Committee-USA was founded by Dr. Perry Kirklin in August 2002 after he had been enstooled as Kuntu Nkosohene, i.e. Kuntu Chief for Development.  Prior to the enstoolment, Dr. Kirklin and his family and friends had donated school supplies to Nana Brebo, chief of Kuntu, for several years.  School supplies for Kuntu is an on-going activity of KVNC-USA.  In 2004, with the help of Bucks County Links, USAID and the U.S. Department of Defense, a 20-foot ship container was filled with over 1000 middle school science text books, laboratory equipment, notebooks, pens, pencils, desks, furniture, computers, etc. and shipped to Kuntu.

More computers were sent in 2007.  Mr. Kennedy Owoo, an Information Communication Technology (ICT) specialist, installed the computers and taught an 8-week training course for the JHS faculty.   In 2009, the Kuntu JHS library was upgraded for better security and the computers installed in the converted JHS computer room.  An additional printer and computer projector were given to the Kuntu JHS ICT program.
