University Outreach

VAM and Cornell University continue a relationship that has yielded the varied artistic talents of Cornell students and faculty who annually visit our Ghana projects. They have painted classrooms and buildings with cheerful colors and uplifting messages; presented the school with SAT study manuals, donated computers and health aids, and offered their expertise in areas such as architecture and medical clinic design.

 

During the summer of 2014, Dr. N’Dri Therese Assie-Lumumba, PhD, VAM Advisory Board member and Cornell professor, along with 6 students visited JWMS.

Adult Education Center for Computer Studies

With the help of one of our VAM Youth Ambassadors and Cornell University student, Samuel M. Ritholtz, this project started in 2014 with 15 students. Currently, enrollment has increased to approximately 150 students in the various programs.

The center seeks to improve computer literacy among the people of Tanoso, a suburb of Kumasi where JWMS is located.

VAM and Cornell University continue a relationship that has yielded the varied artistic talents of the students and faculty who annually visit our Ghana projects. They have painted classrooms and buildings with cheerful colors and uplifting messages; presented the school with SAT study manuals; made financial, computers and health aid donations; and offered their expertise in areas such as architecture and medical clinic design.

Without Cornell University support, we would not be able to boast of the wonderful students making a difference in all of our projects throughout Ghana!

“Wars do not build nations; wars destroy them. Wars bring unnecessary pain, hunger, distress and suffering. There is an alternative to war: the promotion of peace, the sharing of resources and the creation of understanding among all people.”
