Ashesi Graduates its 10th class

Graduation was held in the “Cornfield Courtyard” covered by an enormous tarp in case of rain, and to provide shade.  It was a beautiful day.

Nana, the village chief arrives.  I like how Nana was invited to be an honored guest at graduation, and fun to see his obvious pride in what Ashesi has become, and the hope this campus, located above his village, brings to Africa.
