Akora Global Homecoming: Fri, Jun 30, 2017 08:00 Sun, Jul 2, 2017 17:00
A Homecoming Event in July will give Akoras the opportunity for a nostalgic trip back to the Grey City, while re-connecting with Friends, Classmates, Family, Seniors, Juniors, Ex-Boyfriends, Ex-Girlfriends and Crushes...and oh... also those once-upon-a-time feared bullies as well as well-remembered and loved schoolmates.

There will also be several fund-raising activities with the objective of raising a minimum of $1,000,000 (or the Ghana Cedi equivalent) seed money towards a wall to fence off the School and protect her from encroachment as well as other “legacy projects” our Alma Mater is in dire need of.

The commitment to remain the “Head of All the Host” requires significant financial support and Akoras Pre-historic, Ancient, Modern and Digital Age as well as Akora-owned companies and friends of Achimota will be counted upon to dig really deep to help support and achieve this worthy objective.
