Ashesi volunteer and longtime supporter, Ruth Warren, shares a powerful and inspiring message about her experience visiting Ashesi.

“In my three visits to Ashesi, the sheer diversity, inventiveness and energy of student and graduate projects has thrilled me. I love the mix of innovation, pragmatism and persistence. Poverty and corruption don’t fill Ashesi students and grads with despair, but with a strong determination to create change. I urge anyone who can to give yourself a treat and visit Ashesi. Immerse yourself in this beehive of energy, innovative thinking and pragmatic optimism. It’s better than a safari or a spa—you will come home reinvigorated from your front-row seat to a better future for Africa. Africa’s greatest resource isn’t oil, but young, ethical, hardworking Africans, with great problem-solving skills.”

What’s your top reflection on Ashesi?
