Fourah Bay College

We are honored by the invitation to return to Fourah Bay College in 2018 and are exploring possibilities to also hold a summer school at Prince of Wales School, where we first taught in 2016. This will all be confirmed later in the Spring.

For our 2018 Summer School in Freetown, Charles and Yanoh will be returning to teach Global Finance and Entrepreneurship and Community Health respectively. Yanoh  is also a lecturer at New York Institute of Technology and Charles is a lecturer at our partner university Richmond University London. They will be joined by Sabrina who will be working with the students on a Model United Nations Simulation and Public Speaking skills.
