Join Us to Give Back to Society

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:

#1.

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.

#2.

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:

#1.

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.

#2.

Not only increase learning or capacity-building training opportunities for the underprivileged folks in developing countries, but actually rekindle their hopes.

We Take Education to the Underprivileged

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.
