Alumni give money to Ghana’s oldest university

Alumni from the University of Ghana have donated money to an endowment fund which, among other uses, will support research at the institution.

The group of students from the 1993 cohort led by Robert Darko Osei, vice dean of the School of Graduate Studies, donated 50,000 Ghana cedis (US$10,500) to the fund at the end of last month. This brings the group halfway to its goal of contributing 100,000 cedis to the fund.

It is the first alumni group that has contributed to the fund, the university’s vice-chancellor, Ebenezer Oduro Owusu, said. He invited others to follow suit. The government has already pledged 5 million cedis to the fund. The overall fundraising target is US$100m.
