Expand your horizons - Visit Ghana

"The Pan-African Student Summit (Summit) is an event organized by the Pan African Student Summit, Inc. of the United States of America, and the Sankofa Educational Foundation of Ghana. The Summit is an important development in recognition of the need for cultural connections between students from Africa and from the African Diaspora; and the need for building relationships among these students. The Summit provides students with a forum to discuss issues, inspire ideas that promote action for the progress and development of Africa.

The Summit affords students a forum to address important issues concerning their educational and career opportunities; and to develop an in depth cultural understanding through personal interaction and shared experiences. The Summit is also a unique opportunity for building personal and professional relationships that will lead to future collaborations, as well as for African students to interact with each other on issues regarding national and continental development. Moreover, the Summit provides a forum that contributes to the acquisition of skills that will make the students independent leaders, internationally and culturally aware, and entrepreneurs, with international linkages to move
Africa forward.

The Summit is organized every year in Accra, Ghana. The 4th Pan African Student Summit will be held 11-15 July 2005. For additional information visit"

Also consider the D'Zert Club which offers free trips to Ghana and Egypt for children. There's nothing like visiting a new place to change your perspective, create understanding, and drive change.
