AfriCAN are being funded by the Civil Society Fund

AfriCAN has by CISU (Civil Society in Development) been granted economical support to improvement of education and sustainability in Northern Ghana.

It is the project: ”Student Union Empowerment: A Stronger Voice for Students in Northern Ghana” that CISU has approved economical support for. Therefore the Executive Board are going to Ghana in January, where they are going to complete the joint partnership agreement on the project with our new partner CSIF (Civil Society and Institutional Foundation).

In supporting tertiary education i Northern Ghana AfriCAN aim to strengthen local student unions. Vi believe that education is a prerequisite in creating economical growth and social change i Ghana, but the educational system is in lack of involvement of and influence from the students together with a lack of clutch between education and occupation.

Therefore the Executive Board are going to Ghana in January 2016 with the purpose to clarify the final details around the project, to strengthen the communication and the expectations with our partner CSIF along with achieving a deeper understanding of the students’ opinions and views. The leave for Ghana is about securing that the project will be having the students in focus thus the foundation of the project are being build from their needs and wishes.

The support of this project is to help create the prerequisites of further partnership and the realization of more projects which therefore in the end is a very good thing for the students in Ghana.
