The Germany Embassy in Ghana, in partnership with GIMPA, has organized an education fair for the students of GIMPA.
The event, which was part of the ‘German Week Celebration’, was dubbed: ‘Live, Study and Work in Germany.’
The ‘German Week Celebration’ is aimed at creating more awareness about Germany in Ghana. The celebration also seeks to deepen the relationship between Ghana and Germany and to highlight German engagement in Ghana.
Welcoming the participants, the Dean of Students, Dr Augustina Akonnor thanked the organizers for providing the students with accurate, comprehensive and current information about the opportunities available to enable one live, study and work in Germany.
According to her, studying abroad is one of the best ways to develop one’s global skills. She, therefore, urged the students to make good use of the opportunity being offered to them.
In an address, the Rector of GIMPA, Prof. Samuel Kwaku Bonsu, extolled the wonderful partnership between the Germans and GIMPA saying ‘We have been working with them since 2014 and this fair is just an expression of the relationship that exists between us.’
He also urged the students to take advantage of what Germany had to offer and also take the necessary steps to achieve them.
In a brief interview with Ms. Susanne Giese, the Project Coordinator (Economic Inclusion of Returned Potential Migrants) at the sidelines of the fair, she indicated that the fair was about intercultural communication.
‘Our focus is how to deal with the many cultural differences that exist in Germany and other countries and more importantly, how to deal with them,’ she further explained.
The fair climaxed with a competition for the students.
