USA-Ghana Partnership for Education

PAO, Roberto Quiroz II, interacting with school kids

Our Counselor for Public Affairs Roberto Quiroz II and EducationUSA Kumasi advisor Marilyn Owusu recently conducted public outreach programs in the Ashanti and Brong-Ahafo regions, where they met students and presented them with books and soccer balls. In addition, they attended a Teaching Excellence and Achievement (TEA) and International Leadership and Excellence Program (ILEP) workshop sponsored by the U.S. Department of State in partnership with the Ghana Education Service (GES) for over 600 senior high school teachers from the Brong-Ahafo, Upper East, and Upper West regions. The workshop was titled “Applying Appropriate Technological Tools in Promoting Student Centered Learning.”

Mr. Quiroz and Ms. Owusu also hosted a dinner for Fulbright Program alumni and conducted a live radio interview with Luv 99.5 FM station in Kumasi, where they discussed EducationUSA’s mission to provide Ghanaian youth academic advising to successfully pursue their studies at American colleges and universities. Mr. Quiroz noted: “The United States is proud to promote education in Ghana in partnership with Ghanaians. An education is essential for every child to attain his or her highest potential and achieve their dreams, and we salute all teachers who dedicate their lives to serve in this noble profession.”
