Afoako ICCES Ghana

Why Ghana?


In 2009, our founder James Turing travelled to Ghana to work in a rural school (Afoako ICCES).

The ICCES (Integrated Community Centres for Employable Skills), are vocational training colleges that teach practical skills to students ranging in age from 13-24 and come under the Ministry of Employment and Labour Relations.

Progress


The Turing Trust was founded in 2009 with a mission to equip the ICCES in Ghana with computer laboratories. Since then we have come a long way, from just a few computers being sent to Afoako in 2010, to computer laboratories in 72 schools and ICCES in Ghana today.

This is all supported by regular training workshops for teachers.
