Education  Ghana Project #29395

Bricks/Blocks Campaign

Summary

This project will build a permanent campus about one-hour drive, East of Accra to give our students the most convenient environment for teaching and learning. This would afford us the opportunity to continue to provide a quality liberal arts education that is often a missing ingredient in our higher educational institutions. Relocating to a more suitable campus would enable us receive accreditation to offer three and four year degree programs.

Challenge

Palm Institute's current facility is rented on an annual basis totaling $24,000 per year. Such an amount impacts Palm Institute's limited financial resources. On the other hand, our student body is rapidly growing and there is the need to expand our facilities to accommodate our growing student population.

Solution

The development of a campus that meets the National Accreditation Board (NAB)standards in Ghana is necessary to move to offer three and four -year degree programs and create a far more financially sustainable institution and the ability to diversify the programs offered to students in a positive and conducive learning environment.

Long-Term Impact

Providing higher education with an emphasis on critical thinking and leadership skills will enable the next generation of African leaders to provide ethical and morally sound leadership to their communities. The improvement that has occurred after the academic year for the total number of 40 students has been tremendous, with additional time and investment, the personal and academic growth for our students can be exponential
