INTRODUCTION AND HISTORY
In July 1996 Pastor Isaac Opuni-Akosah was sent on a Missionary duty by Run Mission Assemblies to survey and to plant Churches in the communities within Offinso Municipal where there were no churches and the need was great. A number of communities were selected in the process, including Twumasen, where the people were in desperate need of the Gospel and development support.
Run Mission International School was started in the year 2010. Twumasen Opinion Leaders approached the Run Mission Assemblies for a school as there was no school in the community at the time of the request. A participatory research team comprising officials of the Church and community leaders conducted assessment to ascertain the need for School in the community, and also to secure the commitment of the community people. The assessment was followed by series of community meetings for planning and implementation of the project. The community was happy to see the school started because
1. They could leave their children in safe hands and go to their farms.
2. Their children were being educated.
3. They did not have to travel to go to school.
4. They do not have money to pay for School fees. They were to pay a token canteen fee to feed the children.
