Cosmopolitan Vanguard University

THE PROJECT
Cosmopolitan Vanguard University, under the umbrella of the Cosmopolitan Aid Foundation which is a duly registered non-governmental, non-profit organisation which strives to assure the greatest asset which is education to the impoverished cosmopolitan youth, instigating the seed of selflessness, greatness and innovation into them so that they can also go and do likewise in their communities or serve any remote community in the world where there is the need to tackle poverty's complex root causes.

The Universities in our present age are lagging behind the pace at which its students' creative abilities and ingenuities are evolving. The Universities are seen using the old pedagogic methods which were effective in the past in addressing the thirst of innovation of our children of the present age. The Vanguard University will strive to address that thirst that our children of the present age have for a creative syllabus that is creatively tailored to their current evolving and revolutionary needs.

The Cosmopolitan Aid Foundation was by Dr. Emmanuel Yao Voado, MD. Originally the foundation was named Mawuena Foundation. On the 16th January, 2015, the foundation's name was changed from Mawuena Foundation to Cosmopolitan Aid Foundation. It was originally established in Ghana as a charitable Trust Deed, duly registered on 21st February, 2014 at the Registrar-General's Department in Accra with the registration number CG089012014. In the future, as part of the vision we will have sister charities registered in other countries.
Our mission is to deliver the captive of destiny who will then rebuild the ancient ruins and restore the former devastations (poverty) of many generations. It will have the purpose of serving the people of third world countries and the communities assaulted by this rooted poverty in the developed nations.
It will train professionals, in a wide variety and number of courses laying emphasis on research, so that they can impart the changes that their impoverished communities need.
The inspiration came from the fact that most universities in the third world countries and the impoverished communities of the developed nations have not succeeded in instigating values in their students about the fact that, they the students, are the future world leaders and that the solution to poverty's complex root causes lie in their hands and they have the civil responsibility of learning how the successful individuals and nations made it to stardom so that they can also selflessly strive for the elimination of the curse of poverty in our communities, thus bringing smile to millions of faces in the entire globe.
The Board of Trustees of the Cosmopolitan Aid Foundation, led by Dr. Emmanuel Yao Voado, MD., the Founder, will select the Management Committee that will see to the day to day administration of the university. He is a Ghanaian neurosurgeon trained in Cuba. He was the medical doctor who first opened a neurosurgical service in the country of Belize. He practiced there for 5 years and worked in the United States of America for 6 years before relocating to Africa in September, 2013. He is working diligently on the cure of Spinal Cord Injuries.
The Cosmopolitan Vanguard University will be located in Akuse in the Eastern Region of Ghana.
The Cosmopolitan University will begin with the following courses but it is important to stress that only the sky will be the beginning of our limit because as resources come into our coffers we will open more faculties.

In Africa, we have an abundance of wind and sun but contradictorily, we have power deficit. We need to invest in all renewable forms of energy including solar and wind energy. All forms of energy including biogas, solar and wind energy are extremely scalable, as there are systems available from less than 1 watt to several megawatts. This makes it possible to initialize the electrification of a home or village with minimal initial capital. It also allows for dynamic and incremental scaling as load demands increases. The component configuration of a wind or solar installation also provides a level of functional redundancy, improving the reliability of the system. If a single panel in a multi panel solar array is damaged, the rest of the system continues functioning unimpeded. In a similar way, the failure of a single wind tower in a multi tower configuration does not cause a system level failure.

Because solar and wind projects produce power where it is used, they provide a safe, reliable and cost effective solution. Because transmission equipment is avoided, these systems are more secure, and less vulnerable to attack. This can be an important feature in regions prone to conflict. Wind and solar power systems are simple to set up, easy to operate, easy to repair, and durable. Wind resources and solar resource are abundant enough to provide all of the electrical energy requirements of rural populations, and this can be done in remote and otherwise fragmented low density areas that are impractical to address using conventional grid based systems.

The genes of those competitive muscles in Cuba, Jamaica and the United States are precisely genes brought from Africa. Why is it that Africa is lagging behind in sports competitions like baseball, basketball, football, athletics, and boxing, among others, where their African American brothers excel? We lack a structured policy to educate our children to practice and love sports. We do not premeditatedly plan to enrol our children from the early ages in sports activities with the hope of making them future champions. We do not have the system in place to stimulate the teaching of physical education and sports schools at all levels to achieve these Olympic ideals.  There are inadequate number of sports facilities. We Africans like only soccer (known as football in Africa). We need to diversify our sports activities through a serious programme.

2. ABOUT GHANA

Ghana is located in Western Africa and borders Burkina Faso, Cote d’Ivoire, and Togo. This country occupies a total area of 238,533 square kilometers and has a population of approximately 29,786,408 as of January 5, 2019. The population of West Africa is estimated at 387,246,061 people as of January 8, 2019.

Formed from the merger of the British colony of the Gold Coast and the Togoland trust territory, Ghana in 1957 became the first sub-Saharan country in colonial Africa to gain its independence. Ghana endured a series of coups before Lt. Jerry RAWLINGS took power in 1981 and banned political parties. After approving a new constitution and restoring multiparty politics in 1992, RAWLINGS won presidential elections in 1992 and 1996 but was constitutionally prevented from running for a third term in 2000. John KUFUOR of the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) succeeded him and was reelected in 2004. John Atta MILLS of the National Democratic Congress won the 2008 presidential election and took over as head of state, but he died in July 2012 and was constitutionally succeeded by his vice president, John Dramani MAHAMA, who subsequently won the December 2012 presidential election. In 2016, however, Nana Addo Dankwa AKUFO-ADDO of the NPP defeated MAHAMA, marking the third time that the Ghana’s presidency has changed parties since the return to democracy.

Economy:

Ghana has a market-based economy with relatively few policy barriers to trade and investment in comparison with other countries in the region, and Ghana is endowed with natural resources. Ghana's economy was strengthened by a quarter century of relatively sound management, a competitive business environment, and sustained reductions in poverty levels, but in recent years has suffered the consequences of loose fiscal policy, high budget and current account deficits, and a depreciating currency.
Agriculture accounts for about 20% of GDP and employs more than half of the workforce, mainly small landholders. Gold, oil, and cocoa exports, and individual remittances, are major sources of foreign exchange. Expansion of Ghana’s nascent oil industry has boosted economic growth, but the fall in oil prices since 2015 reduced by half Ghana’s oil revenue. Production at Jubilee, Ghana's first commercial offshore oilfield, began in mid-December 2010. Production from two more fields, TEN and Sankofa, started in 2016 and 2017 respectively. The country’s first gas processing plant at Atuabo is also producing natural gas from the Jubilee field, providing power to several of Ghana’s thermal power plants.
As of 2018, key economic concerns facing the government include the lack of affordable electricity, lack of a solid domestic revenue base, and the high debt burden. The AKUFO-ADDO administration has made some progress by committing to fiscal consolidation, but much work is still to be done. Ghana signed a $920 million extended credit facility with the IMF in April 2015 to help it address its growing economic crisis. The IMF fiscal targets require Ghana to reduce the deficit by cutting subsidies, decreasing the bloated public sector wage bill, strengthening revenue administration, boosting tax revenues, and improving the health of Ghana’s banking sector. Priorities for the new administration include rescheduling some of Ghana’s $31 billion debt, stimulating economic growth, reducing inflation, and stabilizing the currency. Prospects for new oil and gas production and follow through on tighter fiscal management are likely to help Ghana’s economy in 2018.

3. ABOUT AFRICA
Africa is the second-largest continent about 30.2 million km2 (11.7 million sq. mi), after Asia, in size and population. The continent is surrounded by the Mediterranean Sea to the north, both the Suez Canal and the Red Sea along the Sinai Peninsula to the northeast, the Indian Ocean to the southeast, the Atlantic Ocean to the west and Europe to the north. The continent includes Madagascar and various archipelagos.
The population of Africa is estimated at 1.30 billion people as of 2018 accounting for about 16.64% of the world's human population. Africa's population is the youngest among all the continents; 50% of Africans are 19 years old or younger. The median age is 19.4 years. 41% of the population is urban. Algeria is Africa's largest country by area and Nigeria is the largest by population.
Africa, particularly central Eastern Africa, is widely accepted as the place of origin of humans and the Hominidae clade (great apes), as evidenced by the discovery of the earliest hominids and their ancestors, as well as later ones that have been dated to around seven million years ago.History:
At about 3300 BC, the historical record opens in Northern Africa with the rise of literacy in the Pharaonic civilization of Ancient Egypt. One of the world's earliest and longest-lasting civilizations, the Egyptian state continued, with varying levels of influence over other areas, until 343 BC.Climate:
Africa straddles the equator and encompasses numerous climate areas; it is the only continent to stretch from the northern temperate to southern temperate zones.
The climate of Africa ranges from tropical to subarctic on its highest peaks. Its northern half is primarily desert, or arid, while its central and southern areas contain both savanna plains and very dense jungle (rainforest) regions. In between, there is a convergence, where vegetation patterns such as Sahel and steppe dominate. Africa is the hottest continent on earth and 60% of the entire land surface consists of dry lands and deserts.Politics:
Today, Africa contains 54 sovereign countries, nine territories and two de facto independent states with limited or no recognition. Connected with the Indian Ocean, the islands of Africa are the Union of the Comoros, Republic of Madagascar, Republic of Seychelles, and Republic of Mauritius. In the Atlantic Ocean we have Republic of Cape Verde, Democratic Republic of São Tomé and Príncipe. Others are Djibouti, Equatorial Guinea, and Eritrea.
The vast majority of African states are republics that operate under some form of the presidential system of rule. The improved stability and economic reforms have led to a great increase in foreign investment into many African nations, mainly from China, which has spurred quick economic growth in many countries, seemingly ending decades of stagnation and decline.
Some seven African countries are in the top 10 fastest growing economies in the world. If you look at countries like Mozambique, Angola, Ethiopia, Zambia, and Togo – all of those markets have shown exceptional growth and real stability and with that you almost get a new investment climate for these countries. This allows you to have a new emerging middle class and with that comes a very vibrant entrepreneurship culture, businessmen or women who want access to technology and to innovate.Natural Resources:
The continent is believed to hold 90% of the world's cobalt, 90% of its platinum, 50% of its gold, 98% of its chromium, 70% of its tantalite, 64% of its manganese and one-third of its uranium. The Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) has 70% of the world's coltan, a mineral used in the production of tantalum capacitors for electronic devices such as cell phones. The DRC also has more than 30% of the world's diamond reserves. Guinea is the world's largest exporter of bauxite.Economy:
From 1995 to 2005, Africa's rate of economic growth increased, averaging 5% in 2005. Some countries experienced still higher growth rates, notably Angola, Sudan and Equatorial Guinea, all of which had recently begun extracting their petroleum reserves or had expanded their oil extraction capacity.
Several African economies are among the world’s fastest growing as of 2011. As of 2013, these are some of the Africa countries growing by more than 5.0% in real Gross Domestic Product (GDP). These are South Sudan, Sierra Leone, Liberia, Cote d’Ivoire, Ghana, Rwanda, Mozambique, Eritrea, Tanzania, Ethiopia, Gabon, Burkina Faso, The Gambia, Mauritania, Niger, Congo, Zambia, Angola, Uganda, Togo, Nigeria, Morocco and Kenya.
Africa really has the ideal conditions for steady economic growth. A skyrocketing population made up of predominantly younger people is the perfect recipe for a booming economy.
In 2018 we continue to see the same trend for population growth. Compared to 2017, African’s overall population has increased by more than 30 million – 1,256,268,025 in 2017 versus 1,287,920,518 in 2018.
The World Bank’s projections for the sub-Saharan Africa area. According to their 2018 projections for the continent: regional GDP growth of 3.2% (compared to 2.4% last year) is expected this year and an even greater increase of 3.5% is forecasted for 2019.
That’s why keeping an eye out for the top African countries with the fastest economic growth in 2018 is a total must for every potential investor. The abundance of natural resources and a young workforce is what has driven the economic surge on the continent in recent years.
A significant number of 2018’s top performers are non-commodity intensive economies. The list is led by Ghana, followed by Ethiopia and Côte d’Ivoire, with Senegal, Tanzania and Djibouti occupying the fourth, fifth and sixth spots respectively. Africa has six of the world’s ten fastest growing economies this year, according to the World Bank.
The latest forecast places East African country, Ethiopia at 8.2 percent with the West African nation, Ghana leading the continent at 8.3 percent. Topping the list from the first to the tenth position are: Ghana, Ethiopia, Côte d’Ivoire, Senegal, Tanzania, Sierra Leone, Burkina Faso, Benin, Rwanda and Niger.
As the growth in Africa has been driven mainly by services and not manufacturing or agriculture, it has been growth without jobs and without reduction in poverty levels.
4. PERSONAL PROFILE
Born in 1971 to a Christian family of scarce resources in Tefle, Volta Region, Ghana, he always dreamed of breaking the back bone of poverty through education. At the age of 12, he received a prophecy that he would be going abroad to further his education. In 1985, at age 14, the prophecy was accomplished but not without difficulties. After taking the exams to send students to Cuba, he placed first in his district but was unlawfully replaced by the son of the most powerful politician of the district. A concerned citizen sent him to the office of President Jerry John Rawlings, when he was allowed to participate in the national test in which he became first. This event was indeed a shock to many.
He was in Cuba for 17 years, right from the junior high school to the medical school and subsequently to the postgraduate specialist course of Neurosurgery. While in Cuba as a student, he continued the brilliant academic work; he won many awards including best student in Chemistry at the Cuban National Level Quizzes for 3 consecutive years where students from 35 countries then studied. He wrote an Organic Chemistry book which was meant for the preparation of the high performance students who aspired to participate in the World Olympiad of Chemistry. He was summa cum laude (first) in all the levels of education including the medical school and the Specialty of Neurosurgery. At the end of the neurosurgical training, he wrote another book in the field of Spinal Surgery called Lumbosacral Discopathies.
When he completed the Neurosurgical course in 2001, the people of Belize found him and took him to that country as they needed Neurosurgical Services which they had never had the privilege of enjoying locally. He performed simple and complex surgeries on many people including the elite of Belize with no surgical mortality in his 5 consecutive years of practice.
In the USA, under Dr. Robert Grossman, a well-known neurosurgeon, he worked as a Clinical Research Specialist where he was invited by the Congress of Neurological Surgeons of America to present six papers in their international conferences.
He is Belizean and American citizen by naturalization. After 28 years, he has decided to come back to Africa to help his people as he has come to the convincing realization that he is more needed here than in the United States of America.
5. TRACK RECORD
Dr. Emmanuel Voado, MD., is a Ghanaian neurosurgeon trained in Cuba. He was the medical doctor who first opened a neurosurgical service in the country of Belize. He practiced there for 5 years before going to the United States where he resided with his family for 6 years before relocating to Africa in September, 2013.
In Cuba, he was directly involved in the educational system for 17 years and impacted by their health care delivery for 11 years which can all be emulated by third world countries like Ghana who have more natural resources and foreign exchange earners than Cuba. He saw the Cuban government training thousands of students of foreign nations in different courses at the polytechnic and university levels, who then went to their home countries to contribute to their development.
He lived in Belize where he contributed to the healthcare delivery in that nation. Once in the USA, he was personally impacted by all the good things of the American system. One area is the safety network to cater for the destitute.
He saw the compassionate character of the Americans in the hospitals and churches which were the two environments he worked and worshiped and he saw how the two organizations will selflessly use their vacation days to go about doing good to the impoverished nations giving out their substance and technical knowhow.
He was deeply touched by this spirit of selflessness and all this helped to shape his world view in the subconscious level till he came to the conscious realization that a meaningful life is not being rich, being popular, being highly educated or being prefect...It is about being real, being humble, being able to share ourselves and touch the lives of others. It is only then that we could have a full, happy and contented life. That is the motive why, by divine grace, he had been able to abandon the lucrative and most rewarding jobs in the Diaspora and now back home to give back to his people.
6. THE PROBLEM
Most universities in the third world countries and the impoverished communities of the developed nations have not succeeded in instigating values in their students about the fact that, they the students, are the future community/country/world leaders and that the solution to poverty's complex root causes lie in their hands and they have the civic responsibility of learning how the successful individuals and nations made it to stardom so that they can also selflessly strive for the elimination of the curse of poverty in our communities, thus bringing smile to millions of faces in the entire globe.
The tendency of sending our young ones abroad to study so that they can have a different worldview and on their way back implant it creatively for the transformation of our communities and nations has demonstrated to be a failure as the graduates in their majority do not return but stay in the host countries or go to another in search of greener pastures ("brain drain") or when they come back they get absorbed by the status quo and do nothing to change the paradigm.
In the third world countries, the lack of foresight to the future of children on the part of their parents (who in their majority are also ill-educated) and inadequate counselling of both parents and the ill preparation of educational counsellors at the different levels of pre-university and university are the ultimate cause of students doing the wrong courses for the wrong reasons. For example, a medical doctor who could have been a good lawyer or somebody doing arts who could have been a good science student, just because somebody talked him down and the self-esteem and self-confidence went to the drain never to be recovered.
The Universities in our present age are lagging behind the pace at which its students' creative abilities and ingenuities are evolving. The Universities are seen using the old pedagogic methods which were effective in the past in addressing the thirst of innovation of our children of the present age. The Vanguard University will strive to address that thirst that our children of the present age have for a creative syllabus that is dynamically tailored to their current evolving and revolutionary needs.
The theoretical model of training in the universities of the third world countries without an attached application to the real world out there and the conditions unavailable for both inspiration and funding to innovate is the fundamental paralysing force to development.
The job market do not relate closely with the universities to determine what careers they need most to be studied so that when the students graduate they could readily find a job. That is why it is so difficult for polytechnic and university graduates to find a job in the third world, especially, Africa.
The unemployment rate of graduates in Africa is high. You find almost all the students doing Arts and few doing science and we have a greater deficit of scientists to solve our problems and we have to import them with great sums of money, making our national manufactures too expensive to compete with the products from China.
In the medical field in Africa, the leading government and private hospitals are not fully equipped. In the areas in which they are well-equipped, maintenance of equipment is problematic because we have to go South Africa and the developed nations for specialist bioengineers to come and fix them because we have none locally that can repair from the simplest to the most sophisticated equipment. We lack some specialties and medical equipment because the efforts of having a strategic plan for training human resources, especially general medical practitioners, specialists, nurses and other allied health workers at home or abroad for the challenges the health sector is facing or will face in the short term or long term have not yet yielded the expected outcomes. A sustained plan of training the adequate quality and quantity of the new generation that will take the baton when the current generation is gone does not seem to be yielding the expected results.
The efficient hospitals in the developed world have a strong ICT reliance because we need networking to be able to practice telemedicine taking advantage of the technological advancements available, we need computer programming and software staff to prepare the software we need for different reasons in the hospital, we need website developers and graphic designers, hardware, Smartphone application developers, etc. in the modern hospitals of today. In Africa today, except South Africa, this is non-existent.
Having all our health care needs locally is the only way we can stop the efflux of the rich abroad for a better health care when they are also dying in their numbers if it is an emergency condition that does not allow for a sufficient waiting window for its transfer outside the country. We do not have local experts on the diagnosis and treatment of brain aneurysm which is an emergency condition that continues to claim the lives of many in this country. A patient who needs a complex spinal surgery to avoid or improve the condition of paralysis due to a spinal cord injury is in a similar situation because whether the person can pay or cannot pay there is no amount of money that can save his life since emergency treatment is not available in the country.
As we embark on this everlasting journey, to bring a change to the most abandoned segments of our nations, those who have no voice, the destitute and the helpless, we are going to face tremendous challenges in the area of human resources and if we do not have a plan of taking advantage our foreign helpers to train our own local human resources we can never become self-sustainable. If while we are doing this, we help train students from impoverished communities of the world and send them to do likewise then we will be geared in the right direction to eradicate poverty in our communities. We need human resources for the hospital project, where there are not some specific specialists. We are going to need a lot of help from foreigners to run our school for the physically disabled. We would have a Research Institute which will need various scientists who are going to be trained in our university. This university is the strategic answer to these needs and for other needs of these human resources in our country and other impoverished nations.
7. THE SOCIETAL NEED
The inspiration came from the fact that most universities in the third world countries and the impoverished communities of the developed nations have not succeeded in instigating values in their students about the fact that, they the students, are the future world leaders and that the solution to poverty's complex root causes lie in their hands and they have the civic responsibility of learning how the successful individuals and nations made it to stardom so that they can also selflessly strive for the elimination of the curse of poverty in our communities, thus bringing smile to millions of faces in the entire globe.
The Universities in our present age are lagging behind the pace at which its students' creative abilities and ingenuities are evolving. The Universities are seen using the old pedagogic methods which were effective in the past in addressing the thirst of innovation of our children of the present age. The Vanguard University will strive to address that thirst that our children of the present age have for a creative syllabus that is dynamically tailored to their current evolving and revolutionary needs.
Therefore, there is the need for a university that will serve to:
• train our human resources locally to avoid "brain drain" to the developed countries.
• instil the values of selflessness, greatness and innovation into these students to unleash their unimaginable potentials.
• improve the delivery of health care in the third world countries and impoverished communities of the developed nations.
• reduce poverty.
• train our own leaders who will have "fire burning in their bones" with only one passion: transform their communities to do away with selfishness, lawlessness, dirty environments, bribery and inefficiency which are the causes of failure of our third world countries and communities.
8. THE PROPOSAL

8.1 DESCRIPTION OF THE PROJECT

The Cosmopolitan Vanguard University will strive to create knowledge, to open the minds of students to that knowledge, and to enable students to take best advantage of their educational opportunities. To these ends, the university encourages students to respect ideas and their free expression, and to rejoice in discovery and in critical thought; to pursue excellence in a spirit of productive cooperation; and to assume responsibility for the consequences of personal actions. The Cosmopolitan Vanguard University seeks to identify and to remove restraints on students’ full participation, so that individuals may explore their capabilities and interests and may develop their full intellectual and human potential.
Education at the Cosmopolitan Vanguard University will liberate students to explore, to create, to challenge, and to lead. The support the university provides to students is a foundation upon which self-reliance and habits of lifelong learning are built: the Cosmopolitan Vanguard University expects that the scholarship and collegiality it fosters in its students will lead them in their later lives to advance knowledge, to promote understanding, and to serve society.

Materials Science
Modern society is heavily dependent on advanced materials: lightweight composites for faster vehicles, optical fibres for telecommunications and silicon microchips for the information revolution. Materials scientists study the relationships between the structure and properties of a material and how it is made. They also develop new materials and devise processes for manufacturing them. Materials Science is vital for developments in nanotechnology, quantum computing and nuclear fusion, as well as medical technologies such as bone replacement materials.
This diverse programme spans the subject from its foundations in physics and chemistry to the mechanical, electrical, magnetic and optical properties of materials, and the design, manufacture and applications of metals, alloys, ceramics, polymers, composites and biomaterials. This work be will be supported by excellent laboratory and teaching facilities.
The course will be taught partly by our Business School, the programme also will offer an opportunity to develop an understanding of entrepreneurship (learning how to write a business plan, raise capital and start a company). There are also voluntary options to learn a language. These Materials scientists shall become the germ cell of innovation from Africa to the world. All medical and ICT (Information and Communications Technology) students would be encouraged to take this subject.
Human Sciences
All students will be encouraged to study human sciences as a subject in an effort of making them understand fundamental issues and problems confronting contemporary societies. Central topics will include the behaviour of humans, molecular and population genetics, population growth and ageing, ethnic and cultural diversity and the human interaction with the environment, including conservation, disease and nutrition. The study of both biological and social disciplines, integrated within a framework of human diversity and sustainability, should enable the human scientist to develop professional competencies suited to address such multidimensional human problems. This will be an important tool given to them to liberate their people from poverty.

8.3 LOCATION
Accra, the capital of Ghana, is furthermore the anchor of a larger metropolitan area, the Greater Accra Metropolitan Area (GAMA), which is home to about 4 million people, making it the largest metropolitan conglomeration in Ghana by population, and the eleventh-largest metropolitan area in Africa.
The headquarters of the Cosmopolitan Aid Foundation will be located in Bundase in the Greater Accra Region. This is going to be the site for the new international airport which will become the center of West Africa to the world in the travel and pleasure industry. Apart from this huge international airport, there will be an Airport City with skyscrapers of the Dubai style, the seat of the government and all the ministries, an Olympic Stadium among other infrastructures.
We are acquiring 25, 000 acres of land extending from the Volta River to an area behind the new International Airport in Bundase, to build The Kingdom City which will englobe all the structures of the Cosmopolitan Aid Foundation. As coalition builders, in the effort of making our projects become auto-sustainable in the future, we will work co-operatively with all individuals and groups, for profit and not for profit corporations and organisations, with government agencies and international bodies committed to the fight to extend help to the needy, subject only to the policies and priorities set by our governing bodies.
PROJECT PERSONNEL
We need foreign architects and contractors who can lead us in building this project. We need the assessment of foreign sister universities, especially from the USA.

9. SYNERGY
We are grounded on the values of Integrity, Compassion, Accountability, Respect and Excellence (I CARE) principle.
We welcome and respect ongoing international initiatives and national policies to take care and give support to students, vulnerable children and disadvantaged people, fight poverty, ignorance and diseases such as High Blood Pressure, Diabetes, Cancer, Malaria, Immunisable diseases and AIDS. Our activities will be in union and collaboration with other stakeholders.
With your collaboration we both seek to meet the expectation that:
• it will enhance access to quality education tailored to the needs of our third world countries and impoverished communities of the rich nations.
• it will help train doctors, nurses and allied health personnel, business, computer, science and education personnel, who will reduce our chronic deficit of these professionals.
• it would be our humble contribution to the positioning of our countries for success in taking them from their condition of dependable raw material producing countries to manufacturing nations.
• the different corporate bodies will receive this with good pleasure.
• it will not only create a profession for the beneficiaries but also jobs for thousands of our people.
• it will help us possess our own research institutes of the level of the first world to meet the great challenges we have with HIV, Ebola, Malaria and other conditions.
• we would have reduced the "brain drain" to the developed countries so that the third world intellectuals can contribute to the development of their countries.
10. FINANCING
Our own contribution has been in this project but we acknowledge that we cannot do this alone, so we are calling on donors of every nation to help build this project to affect millions of lives inside and outside Ghana.
