Accra, Ghana – The Kofi Annan International Peacekeeping Training Centre (KAIPTC) has received new equipment from the French Embassy. The equipment, consisting of a projector, a projector screen and two maps (that of France and the French Overseas Departments – DOM), aims at strengthening French language learning at the Centre.

This initiative is part of the agreement between the Minister of Europe and Foreign Affairs of the French Republic and the Minister of Defense of the Republic of Ghana to promote cooperation and cultural exchange between the two countries. The agreement guides the teaching of French at the Centre.

The equipment will allow an innovative pedagogical approach to the teaching of French at the KAIPTC, a reflection of the shared desire of France and Ghana to consolidate their partnership, particularly in the field of education. This will undoubtedly help to strengthen the language skills of French language learners at the Centre, fostering greater mutual understanding and enhanced cooperation between the two countries.

Air Commodore David Anetey AKRONG, Deputy Commandant of the KAIPTC, received the equipment on behalf of the Centre and expressed his deep gratitude to the French Embassy, represented by Ms. Christelle HAS, French teaching coordinator in the military settings, for the generous gesture.
