Prempeh Endowment Fund

SEP 14, 2018 —

The Prempeh Endowment Fund (PEF) wants to thank every Amanfoo and non-Amanfoo sympathizers who took the time to sign the petition (https://chn.ge/2wXwvoX) against the Board of Governors for selling the school’s land. Over 500 Amanfoo signed the petition that went directly to the Minister of Education, Dr. Matthew Prempeh among others. That, and several protests from other stakeholders, made our voices heard loudly and clearly on this matter.

We are pleased that the minister has heard our plea and has taken the following decisions:

  1. Ordered a halt to all illegal construction on school lands including the demolition of existing structures
  2. Disbanded the school board which had no authority to approve such sales
  3. Ordered Ghana Education Service (GES) to look into the role of the headmaster in this affair
  4. Ordered the formation of an interim management committee to oversee the school during the transition period

We cannot emphasize enough the importance of Amanfoo coming together and organizing under one true global agenda with the school at the heart of it in order to safeguard and protect the school’s interests and work going forward. The current engagement and participation by Amanfoo in contributing their voices to prevent the sale of school lands should serve as a cautionary note for lack of engagement and apathy with respect to school matters.

In that spirit, we are launching the Alumni Selection Committee (ASC) which we will be the representative body for all alumni globally to help drive a new level of global engagement and representation of every graduating year group. Please go to www.prempeh.com to register and read more about the ASC. You may also send an e-mail to directors@prempeh.com for information on how to participate in the ASC.

Charles K. Asare – Importance of giving back

Category:Class Notes,Donor Stories

Giving back is the responsibility of all those who are fortunate to be able to assist others.  Giving back to me is a way of saying thank you for the countless blessings that I have benefited from society to flourish.  The willingness to voluntarily give back to society is commendable.  It demonstrates ones’ sophistication and maturity in accepting responsibility to advance their communities and society at large.

Charles Asare is a member of Prempeh College class of 1975/77.  He has over 25 years of experience in senior management, banking, and finance in Africa and the US. He was CFO and COO for GPHA Inc. of Philadelphia, and Director-General of SSNIT in Ghana. He managed HSBC Equator Bank’s West African operations and was responsible for Business Development in Corporate Banking and Finance as Assistant General Manager of Ecobank Ghana Limited. He currently serves as a Director on the Boards of CDH Investment Bank Ltd, Malawi, and Airports Council International, Africa.  Mr. Asare holds an MBA from Tuck Business School at Dartmouth College, and a BA in Economics from Haverford College.

Albert Banahene – Making a Difference

Category:Class Notes,Donor Stories

This is a step towards giving back to my Alma Mater.

There is no institution that has molded some of us better than Prempeh did. SUBAN ne Nindeɛ.  Indeed, a profound motto that always rings in my mind.  We were privileged to have had opportunities for good academics and extracurricular activities.  I miss the cadet corps, athletics, and all the social clubs.

Amanfoɔ Selection Committee (ASC)

Category:Highlights

The Amanfoɔ Selection Committee (ASC) is the foundational decision forum for PEF.  This is a broad representative structure of Year Groups to the PEF.  It is analogous to the “parliament” where plans as discussed, prioritized and selected. The ASC structure mimics that of other effective Alumni Foundations in worldwide.

Each Year Group may elect 1-2 ASC representatives who would relay the aspirations and concerns of that year group to the PEF.  A web based electronic voting system would be used to facilitate a global democratic selection process.  Such a system has already been designed and tested by some Amanfoɔ volunteers.

The term of an ASC Member would be three years. A third of the ASC members would be rotated out each three years (like the US Senate) to ensure retention of capacity.  The ASC is expected to convene at least quarterly to deliberate on matters of the Foundation.

The ASC shall be responsible for selecting PEF officers and the Corporation Administrators.

Final plans for the school shall be approved by the ASC and rectified by the directors. Projects expenditure exceeding $10K will need assent by the ASC.

In effect the ASC is at the very heart of the democratic and open system of the PEF.  We expect all Year Groups to have active representations.

A pilot scheme is currently in progress to roll out full functionality of selecting ASC representatives.  It is highly encouraged that Year Groups who are ready to nominate and elect their ASC representatives should contact the PEF directors to initiate the process.
