Share your expertise and partner with us to empower the underprivileged.
We need your kind support to help us expand our pro bono activities and continue offering free education to the underprivileged in certain strategic parts of the world who cannot afford it.
Flowers School of Technology and Management is a career-builder, professional development, research and development oriented institution registered in Germany, the United Kingdom and Ghana. Having progressed through constructive transitions, we feel very solid today. Our modus operandi was not derived for economic gains but rather to give back to society, particularly to help folks from low wage backgrounds and developing countries. Here, below, is part of our story.
Given the size of our core target demographics (developing countries, refugees, underprivileged and low wage earners worldwide), your contribution to share expertise by joining our pro bono mission will increase our capacity to fulfil the dreams of the academic-ambitious from less opportune backgrounds. Because of limited resources, we have had to turn down quite a significant number of students from developing countries. With your extra hand, we shall have a complete hand to absorb most students, if not all. Come along with your knowledgebase to help us expand the career-builder courses we can offer to the needy.
With your involvement, we shall be able to:
Increase the resources we need to support our faculty and staff, empowering them to develop more capacity-building courses we can share with collaborative partners to benefit the underprivileged worldwide, etc.
Accommodate and help fulfil the academic or professional or career-builder qualification quests for the low wage earner or the underprivileged in Germany or Europe; from a developed country; or from a developing country. Join us give a creative voice to today’s refugee, and he or she becomes tomorrow’s constructive leader in society.
Your generous involvement will:
Make you a proud supporter of the expansion of the Flowers School of Technology and Management external activities. Your name, your organisation’s name or logo will be featured in related publications, on our website, and in-print in acknowledgment of your support. We will also place you on our mailing list so you can receive updates on our progress.
Not only increase learning or capacity-building training opportunities for the underprivileged folks in developing countries, but actually rekindle their hopes.
This approach eliminates the financial burden international students often endure simply to follow a short-term professional enhancement training abroad. Between 2004 and 2016, our faculty and partners have successfully facilitated a significant number of career-builder based training programmes for the low-income earner, the underprivileged, and refugee scholars.
Fifty-nine refugee students took part in the DAFI Scholar’s Workshop 2016.

Sixty-five refugee students took part in the DAFI Scholar’s Workshop 2015. Flowers School of Technology and Management in collaboration with UNHCR Ghana and Christian Council of Ghana hosted the two-day workshop in Accra, Ghana.

It was successfully facilitated by our Affiliate Academic Bjorn Gunnar Tafjord of Volda University College, Norway, and Faculty of Flowers School of Technology and Management.
The Annual DAFI Seminar 2014 under the auspices of the UNHCR and the Christian Council of Ghana (CCG) was hosted at Flowers School of Technology and Management’s Ghana campus. The 2014 training programme was held under the theme “Achieving Academic Excellence and Employability Through ICT”.
In 2011 we collaborated to train 141 Ghana-based refugees who graduated successfully with various awards to grant them the boost they needed to thrive in their academic and professional ambition pursuits. The Keynote Speaker, Veronica Fynn Bruey, PhD (c), LLB, Director of Public Health and Health Sciences, Flowers School of Technology and Management, addressed the graduands.
The Flowers School of Technology and Management has successfully collaborated with a Dutch-sponsored non-profit organisation called People Empowerment Program (PEP) Liberia to offer career-builder workshops in Liberia, a country healing from a 14-year civil war, in 2010 (pictured above/below), 2011 and 2012. This supports PEP’s capacity-building programme for both low-wage earners, victims of war, and ex-combatants.
In June/July 2011, we facilitated a 5-day training workshop on strategic leadership modelling in Nairobi, Kenya under the auspices of the Education Unit’s DAFI Programme of the United Nations Agency for Refugees. Sixty UNHCR-sponsored DAFI refugee university scholars based in Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania attended the workshop. We are grateful to Susanne Adam-Kindler (pictured above speaking to participants) for her kind support. The 2011 Nairobi workshop was successfully facilitated by our Affiliate Academics Professor Odd Ragnar Hunnes and Assistant Professor Bjorn Gunnar Tafjord both of the Volda University College, Norway, and Elton Owusu, Flowers School of Technology and Management (pictured below handing out certificates to students).
In 2010, Flowers School of Technology and Management in collaboration with the Christian Council of Ghana (CCG) and the UNHCR Branch Office Ghana organised a one-day workshop on Educating Yourself for Strategic Achievement.

In 2009, under the auspices of the UNHCR Branch Office Ghana, our faculty members facilitated a 2-day training workshop on Innovation and Entrepreneurship in Ghana. The target audience were refugee university scholars (from Liberia, Ethiopia, Sierra Leone, etc.) resident in Ghana.
