Special mention and thanks are due to John Antwi-Nuamah (overall coordinator in Ghana) and Gideon Chonia (pre-event inspiration and co-facilitation). The event would not have occurred without their dedication and perseverance.
The University of Education, Winneba, contributed the venue (two laboratories, an auditorium, and a dining hall), in addition to general support at the event, speakers (Mr James Williams, Dr Manko, Prof Ameyaw Asabre, Prof J Anamoah-Mensah – VC University of Education, Winneba), and participation in some of the tracks.
Ms Dorothy Gordon, Director General of the Advanced Information Technology Institute, supported the event, from the early stages when the Meraka Institute sought proposals and a partner in Ghana to co-convene the event, through to an excellent closing speech.
The track leaders did a great job, at short notice, in guiding activities in each track. Thanks too to all the participants who gave of themselves throughout the event.
In the Education out of the Box Navigation track, Rokhaya Ndiour demonstrated leadership and technical ability, and courageously reported back on progress in impressively improved English.
