These pictures show Ghana’s Ashesi University College’s new campus in the mountains near Aburi.
Ashesi is the country’s first liberal arts college in West Africa that teaches Ghanians innovative and interactive ways to solve problems and learn new things. It is a wonderful university that was founded by Patrick Awuah after attending university in the US and working for Microsoft. His goal was to create a college that would provide quality education to the next generation of African leaders and innovators by teaching them the essential skills to be successful in life.
I first visited the university when it was in Labone, a part of Accra near the US embassy, because my friend Isaac Bruce studies there. This fall, it moved to its new location in the mountains, an hour outside of Accra. At first I didn’t think I would be able to see it before leaving Ghana this summer, but I was lucky enough to be able to visit it this August. It really is an inspirational place to be.
