Millennium Fellowship Project: Karipack Project
The Karipack project has to do with reshaping the primary education system in Ghana by giving underprivileged primary school students a form of extra-curricular activities which include personality building, talent nurturing, and exposure to the right information necessary for their enlightenment and development. Some goals that this project will accomplish include attracting donors, investors, and sponsors so the project can acquire the necessary materials to help nurture and develop the personalities of the students. There will also be an excursion and a personality building seminar to enlighten these underprivileged primary school students.
