Partnership Between Government and Stakeholders to Propel Ghana into the 4th Industrial Revolution – CENDLOS Chief Executive Director

The advancement of Ghana into the 4th industrial revolution is highly dependent on the collaboration between academia, industry, the private sector, and the government.

Nana Gyamfi Adwabour, the Executive Director of the Center for National Distance Learning and Open Schooling (CENDLOS), emphasized the critical role of public-private partnerships in achieving educational milestones. He pointed out that partnerships, such as the one with Bountiful Technologies Limited, are vital for creating a workforce fit for the 21st century and enhancing STEM and reading literacy skills among Ghanaian and African youth.

During his interaction with Ghanaian students who competed in the VEX Robotics competition in Dallas, Texas, Nana Gyamfi Adwabour praised their efforts. The students, some as young as eight, were trained in Ghana by Bountiful Technologies and competed against peers from the USA, Canada, India, and several European countries. Upon their return, the Ghana Bountiful Technologies VEX Robotics Team, along with their parents and staff from Bountiful Technologies, visited CENDLOS to showcase their trophies and robotics skills.

Nana Adwabour commended the students’ achievements and noted CENDLOS’s initiatives to integrate game-based learning tools to advance STEM education in Ghana. He announced plans to bolster support for Bountiful Technologies Ltd. through initiatives aimed at widening access to STEM education. He assured that resources and funding from the government, donors, partners, and the Ministry of Education would be directed towards ensuring all students, particularly those in underserved and rural areas, benefit from STEM programs such as VEX Robotics, the Robotics Education & Competition Foundation, and Reading Horizons.

Expressing immense pride in the students’ accomplishments, Nana Adwabour congratulated them for their success on an international platform. He also thanked the parents for their support and appreciated Bountiful Technologies Ltd. and the Bountiful STEM Educational Foundation for their dedication to investing in Ghana’s youth through STEM, Robotics, AI, Reading Literacy, and Computer Science Education.

The visit concluded with a tour of CENDLOS’s facilities, including digital and multimedia studios and ICT labs, providing students and parents with an overview of the resources available to support their educational journey.

Through these collective efforts, CENDLOS aims to build a robust framework for STEM education that reaches every corner of Ghana, equipping the next generation with the skills necessary to succeed in a technology-driven world
