It has been nine (9) months since the Naa Amerley Palm Education (NAPE) Foundation broke ground on the building of a permanent campus to house Palm Institute. The campus is located at Manya Jorpanya in the Shai Osudoku District in the Greater Accra Region, Ghana.
The new phase of our permanent campus is gradually taking shape. Tremendous progress has been made and we are hoping to finish plastering and laying the roof tiles before the month ends. We continue to seek more funds for electricity, portable water roads, a fence and landscaping.
Thank you to all of our donors for your continued support.
On 16th December, 2017, Palm Institute held its 2nd Graduation Ceremony for the class of 2017. The theme centered on Building a Sustainable Liberal Arts Education in a Conducive Environment. Sixteen graduates were awarded diplomas in Business Administration, Computerized Accounting, and Banking Technology and Accounting. The graduation was attended by management, staff, faculty, board members, friends of Palm Institute and friends and family of those graduating.
The Founder, Rev. Dr. Okantey spoke to the graduates and encouraged them to strive towards meeting their goals with efficiency and effectiveness. He also highlighted Palm Institute’s major achievements since 2014, which included the start of construction of the first phase of Palm Institute’s permanent campus.
Mr. Sie was awarded the Founder’s Award which signifies the best overall student from the 2017 graduating class. He was presented with a new Dell laptop. Various other awards were presented to students based on their academic performance.
Congratulations to the 2017 graduating class! We wish them all the best!
Thankfully, our permanent campus construction at Manya Jorpanya has taken full shape over the past few months. The entire block works needed for the superstructure has been completed.
The building and construction of the framework for the roof and septic tank is almost complete. Electrical Engineers on the other hand, have worked on the electrical layout. We are however left with the finishing works (plastering, tiling, fixing of windows and doors, lighting systems, plumbing, and landscaping). With your continuous support, we hope to complete the entire building and get it ready for academic work in June.
Join the Palm Dream. Help build a destination for raising ethical and excellent values-based African leaders.
