The mission of Freedom Campus is focused on housing, health, nutrition, education and the creation of opportunity for Ghana, and all Africans. Because of its unique setting – Freedom Campus is literally adjacent to the former infamous slave shipping port of Fort Prinzenstein – we have a never-ending obligation to remind the world of what happens when human beings are stripped of their dignity and traded as chattel. The practice of slavery continues around the world today, as always, fueled by avarice, poverty and ignorance.
While we have few weapons to combat greed, evil and inhumanity, Freedom Campus will be at the vanguard of the war against the factors that allow slavery to flourish – in Africa and elsewhere: poverty, disease and ignorance. Our primary thrust is to offer an opportunity to earn a decent standard of living and hope for the future to the youth, women and men of Ghana, based on a better utilisation of latent human and physical resources.
Together with our eminent Advisory Board (professors Victor Gadzekpo, Emmanuel Akyeampong, Elysée Soumonni, Kodzo Gavua and Sandra Green) we have joined the battle to solve the critical problems of insufficient and inadequate housing; insect-borne diseases; a costly, wasteful and unreliable agricultural food chain; and access to finance for infra-structure projects utilising indigenous human and material resources – essential for the future of the country and its people. At the same time, we will shed light on the Slave Coast industry and infrastructure developed to feed the insatiable demand for slave labour in the Caribbean, Europe and South America.
This project, integrated with the restoration of Fort Prinzenstein, will attract tourists, create jobs and generate income through much of the Volta Region. Freedom Campus is destined to become a key international educational hub in an on-going campaign to improve the quality of life in the Volta Region, Ghana and the African Continent.
