Investing in the future
Sponsoring one or more students means two things: Firstly, your investment covers the educational costs for one student per year. So you are investing in the academy itself, ensuring that our educational offer can continue to be professional and high-quality. Of course, this also has a direct effect on …
The average distance to the academy in Mim is long: Some of our students need up to three hours a day to get to the academy and back home. On foot. None of our students have the financial means to afford a used bicycle. So we built a bicycle workshop for our students on the premises of the Academy, …
In addition to technical training, we teach our students environmental stewardship and sustainability through agricultural training. They become aware of how their decisions can impact the natural world. We use the academy grounds for the ecological cultivation of fruits and …
Ghana is a country rich in natural resources. Our motivation in founding the Ghana Greentech Academy was to help the people here to market and distribute these resources internationally, on their own. From our own resources: this is the decisive key word – because only in this way can it be ensured that the wealth of the country will be preserved for future generations.
News from the campus in Ghana
With the students, parents, our chairman Tom Vernon, the Mim Paramount Chief and his council, the attaché of the Danish Embassy as well as numerous guests from the education authority and friends of the academy we celebrated the renaming of the academy. During the celebrations our new technical equipment was presented to the guests. With this equipment our students learn at European level and can even use computers with internet access. The equipment was donated by BIC electric. We can't say thank you often enough.
"Farmers’ Day" is a holiday in Ghana to honour and celebrate all farmers and fishermen. It is celebrated on the first Friday in December. This year, we engaged the employees of Mim Cashew in a friendly competition. At 10.00 o'clock in the morning the competition kicked off with an egg-and-spoon race. By the way, in Ghana the eggs are replaced by limes. Then we cheered for participants in a sack race. Afterwards, our female students really showed their mettle in the volleyball match, triumphing in a clear two set victory. The men’s team however fought a three set thriller in the volleyball with a close victory for the Mim Cashew team. In the afternoon, the female team asserted their dominance again in a football match. After the final whistle, it was 2:0 for the Ghana Greentech Academy. The last competition was the men's soccer match. Under a very heated atmosphere, our students were defeated 2-0 by the Mim Cashew workers. The rematch takes place next year - by tradition.
In November, the trophy went to a first grade student: Kyekyeku Kwadwoo Oppong. We are particularly proud of Kyekyeku. He found GHC 10 on the school grounds and handed the money to a teacher for keep. The GHC 10 was returned later the same day when the rightful owner of the money began to spread the news of his loss. Honesty must be rewarded. Bravo Kyekyeku!!
