From the experience of the founders as former students in both Ghanaian and French education systems we could say that academic certificates obtained in Ghana are more biased towards theoretical knowledge as opposed to practical know-how. Consequently, though Africa is the most abundantly resourced continent on the planet, the lack of technical-know-how has not favoured it to tap into the available opportunities.
We believe socio-economic development, self-reliance and poverty alleviation across the African continent depend mainly on the training of a skilled workforce, the upsurge of a middle class, a higher purchasing power and the capacity to earn and spend money and pay taxes.
Our main aim is to drive most student to acquire practical know-how to resolve skilled labour shortage and assist in socio-economic development of African Countries.
Currently, over 400,000 African students are studying abroad. Majority of them have enrolled in courses such as Business Administration, Economics, Law, Accounting, Finance, Tourism, Humanities, etc. And most of them did not go through any formal orientation or counselling programme before choosing their courses. We believe even though their skills are needed to build an economy, they are not likely to make as much impact on the growing skilled labour shortage as students with technical backgrounds.
Indeed, training an important number of skilled workforce in various fields such as Engineering, Agronomy, Environmental Studies, Biomedical Engineering, Biological Sciences, Electrical Engineering, Technology, Chemical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering–Engineering Mechanics, Geographical and Mining Engineering, Forest Resources and Environmental Science, Civil and Environmental Engineering, Physics etc. at varied levels could be a catalyst to the socio-economic development, self-reliance and poverty alleviation.
We are focused on orienting and accompanying African students (who have the means to study abroad) towards the study of Technical Courses and professional courses in France. We want to contribute to the training of a new generation of African who will be capable of building our roads, growing our own crops to feed people locally, engineering our own communications systems and passing their knowledge onto others.
