Since September 2014, The Palm Institute in collaboration with NAPE Foundation has conducted the first semester of classes. First semester exams will start on the 19th of January, 2015 after the exams questions have been moderated by professors in Ghana under the supervision of the National Board for Professional and Technical Examinations Unit (NABPTEX). This will help meet the highest academic standards while we train our students for the global stage. We currently have ten (10) students from Accra, as well as students from more rural areas in Ghana.
The new students have done exceptionally well, and we have begun the process of recruiting new students for the next academic year. We recently visited Nafana Senior High School, where many NAPE Foundation scholarship recipients have attended, to meet with students in the last year of Senior High School. We conducted interviews with many students who had qualifying grades to attend PISL during the next academic year, and we are currently in the process of reviewing new applications. Our aim is to provide as many students as possible with full or partial scholarships to ensure that as many young people are able to access higher educational opportunities and leadership training.
Once again, we would like to thank all of our donors who have been so generous and have continued to support us.

Students in Sampa during the screening process
Thank you so much for your support throughout the Global Giving Open Challenge! Your contributions have had a huge impact on our organization and have enabled us to begin classes at the Palm Institute of Strategic Leadership beginning on August 25th! We have enrolled 15 students, all of whom will benefit from either a full or partial scholarship. Your support has made all the difference.
Palm Institute of Strategic Leadership (PISL) and The Naa Amerley Palm Education (NAPE) Foundation are committed to ensuring the next generation of leaders in Ghana and all of Africa are equipped with essential leadership and critical thinking skills. Our one-on-one tutoring services, small classroom sizes and dedication to ethical and moral leadership ensures that our PISL graduates will have an impact in whatever industry they pursue.
Our 15 students come from Accra and it’s surrounding neighborhoods as well as from Sampa, Brong-Ahafo Region. NAPE Foundation has worked with and provided scholarships to students in Sampa for a number of years. We are thrilled to continue our working relationship with the Sampa community by enabling high school graduates to continue their education at PISL and continuing our dedication to low-income students who demonstrate academic excellence. Our 15 students will be the next generation of leaders.
