Ghana’s Finance Minister, Ken Ofori-Atta has been awarded the prestigious African Finance Minister of the year at the Annual African Development Bank (AfDB) Meeting in Busan, South Korea.
The award follows Ghana’s recent macroeconomic performance.
Recognised as Africa’s most results-oriented Finance Minister, Ken Ofori-Atta’s prudent economic management has boosted confidence and optimism in Ghana’s economy – hauling it out of a deeply pessimistic economic outlook from a little over a year ago.
Investor confidence in Ghana has been bolstered with the country’s strong showing in its recent bond issuance, which raised US$ 2.0bn in 10-year and 30-year Eurobonds of $1.0bn each.
Code in The Community is a community initiative in which Google is sponsoring free coding classes for 3,000 underprivileged children in Singapore, in conjunction with the four ethnic self help groups (CDAC, MENDAKI, SINDA and the Eurasian Association).
The program consists of 10-week terms in which kids learn either Scratch (8-11yo) or Python (12-15) in a fun and engaging way, allowing them to build digital literacy, confidence and resourcefulness.
At the end of the term, kids will have created a project that they can present to their parents and classmates, and also be empowered with resources to continue their learning journey at home.
The next run of Code in the Community starts in July, with classes at the following venues:
– Jurong West Public Library
– Sengkang Public Library
– Yishun Public Library
– Marine Parade Public Library
– Tiong Bahru Community Centre
A typical class consists of 20-25 students, with one instructor and four assistants. We are looking for volunteer instructor and assistants that can not just instruct but also inspire! Continue reading
The Jackson Institute for Global Affairs celebrated its graduates May 21 with a diploma ceremony and lunch at Horchow Hall. The Institute awarded 28 M.A. degrees and one M.A.S. degree in Global Affairs.
Jackson graduate students started the day with a 10:30 a.m. ceremony at Yale’s Old Campus, where the University symbolically conferred degrees on all undergraduate and graduate students from the Class of 2018. Jackson student Zachary Devlin-Foltz M.A. ’18 served as marshal and accepted the symbolic diploma for M.A. graduates.
Beginning at 12:30 p.m., the Jackson Diploma Ceremony opened with welcoming remarks from Professor Lloyd Grieger, Jackson’s director of graduate studies.
Grieger reflected on the benefits—and the scrutiny—that comes with attending a prestigious Ivy League institution, using Yale’s motto “Lux et Veritas” as a metaphor.
“The light here at Yale is bright—in and out of the classroom—and as graduates, you now inherit this light. You are now carriers of this light—and everywhere you go, you can shine it in the furtherance of truth,” Grieger said.
