Our Core Values
We develop aspects critical to our holistic development. Our programs and initiatives are centered in spiritual, cultural, physical, mental, and psycho-social well-being, while operating as vehicles for leadership development and transformation.
Civil rights activist Coretta Scott King said, “The greatness of a community is most accurately measured by the compassionate actions of its members.” By cultivating a culture of civic engagement, we help leaders to invest in, and help transform their local and global communities.
We share Nelson Mandela’s belief that “education is the most powerful weapon in which you can use to change the world.” The process of being educated extends beyond a formal classroom and academic institution. We develop and implement programs that enhance cross-cultural awareness and cultural competency while affirming one’s own cultural identity.
In addition to our immersion actperiences, we partner with local leaders in Ghana to help assess critical needs and solve problems. From energy sustainability to economic development, our work has impacted hundreds of families and we strive to impact thousands more. Some of our previous work includes: establishing an alternative energy computer lab, microfinancing a corn mill, and helping construct a multipurpose kitchen for local entrepreneurs and caretakers.
