    Activation vs Education
    Activation (Nkanyan) is an inherently dynamic process in which the external and the internal interact to produce an awakened and enlightened state where an individual’s mind, body, and spirit are transformed as they are set into motion. Nkanyan focuses on preparing an individual to fulfill their mission in life, which includes acquiring necessary knowledge and skills and engendering motivation, righteous character, commitment, discernment, patience, and dedication.

    We must create learning experiences that are designed to activate children so that they may fully realize and utilize their Onyame-given gifts.

    Foundations of Engineering for Nation Building
    “We are not engaged in domestic politics, in church building or in social uplift work, but we are engaged in nation building.” -Marcus Mosiah Garvey

    In this masterclass we’ll explore the why and how of engineering – how engineers build technologies and infrastructure and why engineers are necessary for nation building and management activities.
