Accra, July 12, GNA – Transnational Academic Group (TAG) has launched an Education Trust Foundation to complement its Corporate Social Responsibility initiatives.
The Foundation was to support the education and development of needy but brilliant students in Ghana. “We are delighted to be able to extend our philanthropic activities to Ghana.
“Our focus is on the Girl Child and Children from disadvantaged families, mainly to assist with their education as that was the most powerful tool to change someone’s life,” Mrs Saloni Wahi, TAG Patron stated at the launch.
The beneficiaries would include current or future students and scholars from disadvantaged backgrounds, who are citizens of Ghana, disadvantaged communities and children of non-executive staff of TAG Ghana.
As part of the launch, Trustees of the Foundation and staff members of Transnational Academic Group, Ghana, visited and donated to children of Rising Star Home, an Orphanage located at Dodowa.
Items donated included food and clothing, where the team including staff and trustees of the Foundation spent some time playing and interacting with the children.
TAG provides students across emerging markets access to top-ranked post-secondary and executive education.
Over the last decade, TAG has successfully delivered programmes in academic partnership with some of the world’s top ranked institutions, seeing over 2,000 graduates across Africa and the Middle East.
TAG currently owns and operates Lancaster University’s campus in Ghana, Curtin University’s Dubai campus, and South Africa-based ABN Training, which works with the Australian Institute of Management in Western Australia.
