The West Africa Centre for Crop Improvement (WACCI) is a partnership between the University of Ghana (UG) and Cornell University, USA that was established in June 2007 with funding from the Alliance for a Green Revolution in Africa (AGRA) at the University of Ghana to train Plant Breeders in Africa working on the improvement of African crops in local environments for farmers in Africa.
To be the foremost Centre for the training of Plant Breeders for West and Central Africa.
To equip plant breeders with knowledge and field experience to lead the conversion of genetic and molecular discoveries into innovative solutions that will benefit agriculture in West and Central Africa.
WACCI is based on the successful model of the African Centre for Crop Improvement (ACCI), University of Kwazulu- Natal, South Africa. This model is based on the premise that we can train African Plant Breeders in Africa, working on African crops in African environments.Since inception, WACCI has enrolled 82 PhD students from 12 West, East and Central African countries and has graduated 28 highly qualified and competent plant breeders. As a result of the outcome of students PhD research projects, national crop improvement programmes have been revived in the sub-region. WACCI graduates have demonstrated the value of quality plant breeding education in the region and made the WACCI programme a model for SSA and beyond. Currently, the Programme has students from Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Ghana, Niger, Nigeria, Mali, Kenya, Senegal, Sudan, and Uganda.
2nd Image International Academy is committed to preparing interested persons for exciting, successful careers in Hairdressing, Beauty Therapy, Cosmetology, Dressmaking and Fashion and Designing from Certificate level to Higher National level.

Established in May 1992 by the Government of Ghana to “blend the academic world with that of the community in order to provide constructive interaction between the two for the total development of Northern Ghana, in particular, and the country as a whole” (PNDC Law 279, Section 279).
“The UDS was borne out of the new thinking in higher education which emphasizes the need for universities to play a more active role in addressing problems of the society, particularly in the rural areas” (Effah, 1998).
The University by its mandate and constituency has a pro-poor focus. This is reflected in its methodology of teaching, research and outreach services. The specific emphasis on practically-oriented, research and field-based training is aimed at contributing towards poverty reduction in order to accelerate national development:
It began academic work in September 1993 with the admission of forty (40) students into the Faculty of Agriculture, (FoA), Nyankpala.
The Faculty of Integrated Development Studies, (FIDS), Faculty of Planning and Land Management (FPLM), School of Business and Law, Wa, Faculty of Education (FoE), and School of Medicine and Health Sciences (SMHS), Tamale, Faculty of Renewable Natural Resources (FRNR), Faculty of Agriculture (FoA) and the Faculty of Agribusiness and Communication Sciences (FACS), Nyankpala, Faculty of Applied Sciences (FAS), Faculty of Mathematical Sciences(FMS), Navrongo and the Graduate School now in Tamale were phased in from 1994 to date.
The University is envisaged to be a Home of World Class Pro-Poor Scholarship. This is reflected in its motto: “Knowledge for Service” as well as its methodology of teaching, research and outreach programmes.
The UDS seeks to achieve its vision by:
1. Promoting equitable and socio-economic transformation of communities through practically oriented, community based, problem solving, gender sensitive and interactive research, teaching, learning and outreach activities.
2. Providing higher education to persons suitably qualified for and capable of benefiting from it.
3. Positioning itself as a national asset in the facilitation of lifelong learning.
4. Developing its information and communication technology infrastructure as the driving force for the education of more people, more rapidly and the improvement of efficiency and academic quality in order to advance community and national development.
The Regional Institute for Population Studies is, for the most part, a centre of postgraduate training. All degree programmes are postgraduate courses. However, short courses may be organised for specific groups or organizations as necessary. These short courses are generally related to RIPS’ areas of expertise – Population and demographic training, research methods and research writing.
RIPS is committed to training and development of the intellect, independence and character of the most competitive graduate students and faculty from across the continent and the globe and playing a leading role in research in population health by ardently pursuing excellence in education.
The Institute accomplishes its mission by mentoring students to develop their potential and integrity as experts in their field of population sciences. This includes employing the most innovative and interdisciplinary methodologies for research and training to turn out highly motivated, ethical, competitive, students capable of publishing in major journals, as well as productive and relevant population scientists in Africa.
RIPS will be globally recognized as the leading center for research and training in population/health science in Africa, contributing to the well-being and health of African communities through collaborative work within the Institute and with local communities.

Infectious Diseases such as malaria, HIV and Tuberculosis contribute the largest proportion of morbidity and mortality in the West African sub-region. This calls for increased and sustained efforts to train the manpower required to confront the menace and to promote research towards the development of new approaches for vaccines, drugs and diagnostics.
The West African Center for Cell Biology of Infectious Pathogens (WACCBIP) at the University of Ghana was formed in response to the World Bank’s African Centers of Excellence (ACE) initiative. The Center will provide Masters, PhD and Post-doctoral level training, and conduct research focused on cell and molecular biology of major diseases such as malaria and tuberculosis. WACCBIP seeks to build on existing collaborations between the Department of Biochemistry, Cell and Molecular Biology (BCMB), the Noguchi Memorial Institute for Medical Research (NMIMR), and the University of Ghana Computing Systems (UGCS), and an invaluable relationship with a major international partner in the American Society for Cell Biology (ASCB). These relationships were built through organizing the West African Regional Workshop on Cell Biology of Infectious Pathogens at the Department of Biochemistry, Cell and Molecular, University of Ghana. This was under the ASCB Africa Initiative, which has been successful in training many scientists using its vast network of international Infectious Disease experts.
This Centre aims to serve as the hub to provide a permanent organizational presence required for extending the reach of these workshops to many institutions in the sub-region. Apart from extending the reach of the workshops, the scope of the training provided will also be expanded to include medium and long-term programs.
