On Thursday, December 5th, 2019, Mrs. Regina Honu, the C.E.O. of Soronko Academy, participated in a panel discussion with the CIEE: Council on International Educational Exchange
CIEE is a non-profit organization offering study abroad and cultural exchange programs to international students who wish to visit Ghana. The event, titled “Championing the Humanisation of International Education in Ghana,” was organized by the CIEE to celebrate its 25th anniversary.
Soronko has an important partnership with the CIEE, by providing internship opportunities to international students at the Academy. Mrs. Honu expressed how beneficial it had been to host interns at the Academy. She said the international students brought fresh perspectives and ideas to Soronko. In turn, they were exposed to many different projects, events, and the Ghanaian culture, offering the quick adaptability required to adjust and cope.
Mrs. Honu explained that her years spent studying in Norway was a valuable experience which has inspired her to offer opportunities to international students. She commented that even students without a technology background can find interesting work at Soronko and that all interns were warmly welcomed into her team.
