New Building to Accommodate more Students!

by NAPE Foundation


Palm Institute is growing at a rapid rate. Our new semester begins in March, 2015, and our enrollment will increase by 200%. When the new school year begins in September 2015, we anticipate even greater growth. To accommodate our growing student body and faculty, we are working to expand our building to ensure we have an adequate amount of space to offer all of our classes.

Palm Institute works to provide tertiary education to students in Ghana that focuses on leadership and critical thinking - two elements that are often neglected in traditional Ghanaian education. Our student body is growing and we want to ensure that we can provide training and education to as many youth as possible. Our current space is large enough for our first year students, but we anticipate that next year, we will need more space to accommodate our growing community.


Our student body has grown 200% between semester 1 and 2, and we anticipate that this growth will continue at a rapid rate. By providing additional buildings, we can continue our commitment of providing small class sizes for all of our students, and ensure that each student has adequate resources to be successful. Additional building space ensures that our students, staff and faculty can continue to thrive within this school 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 one semester with ten students has been tremendous, with additional time and investment, the personal and academic growth for our students can be exponential!
