ADISADEL FOUNDATION - CENTENARY CAPITAL CAMPAIGN|
Greetings Fellow Santaclausians and Friends
On behalf of Adisadel College we are excited to kick off
the $5 million Adisadel Capital Campaign in North America as we get ready to
celebrate the school’s centenary in 2010. This letter is to solicit your
financial support and investment ‘Towards Another 100
Years of Educational Excellence’ at Adisadel College.
As you know, Katanga was built to celebrate the school’s Golden Jubilee in
1960. Fifty years later, the campus and its infrastructure need major
renovations and new structures. With the school’s 100th anniversary approaching,
it is our turn to do exploits and add to the gains of those who went before us.
Why must we do this? It is because Adisadel matters a great deal. As a
provider of quality secondary education, it is a brand of inestimable value
throughout Africa; in leadership development, it is a national treasure for
Ghana. In the Kuffuor Administration, two of the three branches of the
government were led by Santaclausians: the Hon. Ebenezer Sekyi Hughes as Speaker
of Parliament and the late Hon. George Acquah as Chief Justice. Moreover, all of
our hearts were wonderfully warmed with great pride by the accomplishments of
our own Ave Kludze, NASA Rocket Systems
Expert and of David Kofi Nyarko who earned 8 A’s
on the 2008 WASSE exams and was ranked one of the three top students in all of
West Africa. To maintain this tradition of excellence we owe it to our
predecessors and successors alike to improve the school for future generations.
In August 2008, the Adisadel Old Boys Association, North America and the
Adisadel Foundation created a U.S. Fundraising Committee tasked with the
responsibility of raising funds for the Adisadel Centenary Capital Campaign in
North America. Please take a look at the
Adisadel Capital Campaign Brochure,
