Kina Advisory congratulations the 18’ Ashesi University graduates
Kina Advisory congratulates the 2018 class of graduates from Ashesi University. We particularly want to mention a young female graduate, Teni Agana, who has an inspiring story.
Teni’s drive and ambition, that led to her graduating from what is undeniably the best University in Ghana, began in high school. Her aspirations to become a college graduate saw her move away from her family home to work in a market place as a head porter, known locally as “kayayo”, to save money for her college education. However, her savings had to be used to deal with a family medical emergency. But that good turn was repaid when she was introduced to a member of CAMFED, a partner institution of Ashesi University, that supports the education of young women in rural sub-Saharan Africa, to lift them out of poverty to become leaders of change. She was encouraged to and successfully applied for a MasterCard Foundations scholarship to Ashesi University. Her ambition is now to help others who find themselves in the situation she was in realise the benefits of college education.
At Kina, we work with our clients to advise and support the development of social investment strategies and programmes. One such client is Tullow Oil, a supporter of Ashesi University. Tullow is delighted to congratulate the 2018 Ashesi graduates:
“Ashesi University is a key partner in Tullow’s efforts to build capacity in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) Education in order to produce graduates where the company’s host countries experience significant skills gaps and to also help in the development of the country.
Tullow Ghana is providing scholarships to 10 bright but needy students to complete a four-year engineering degree. Tullow supports centers of excellence such as Ashesi University which delivers a solid engineering degree with an emphasis on design thinking and entrepreneurship so that students graduate with hands-on skills which will make them more effective contributors to industry.”
