Every Gift Helps Ashesi Build a Better Future for Africa

Over the past 17 years, Ashesi has established a reputation as a leader in undergraduate education in Africa, with an educational experience that fosters ethical leadership, an entrepreneurial mindset and the ability to solve complex problems. These qualities are what set Ashesi alumni apart. The collective Ashesi curriculum and experience results in an average of 94% of alumni finding placement in careers, graduate school, or starting businesses within six months of starting their search — and 90% choose to stay and work for progress in Africa.

At the heart of the Ashesi experience is our inclusive campus culture. Students come from 24 African countries to learn, live, and innovate together. 48% are women, and 43% come from disadvantaged backgrounds. On campus, students join with faculty and leadership to engage in discussion, civic action, and connection under a shared mission to transform the African continent. 

To serve more students, we must continue to expand our facilities and strengthen our scholarship program. To provide students with the highest-quality education, we must invest in faculty development and research. And to help scale Ashesi's model, we must expand our idea-sharing platform, The Education Collaborative. Launched in 2017, the Education Collaborative brings together African university leaders and stakeholders to collaborate on best practices in teaching, management and administration.


We invite you to partner with us to make this growth possible and help amplify a new generation of African leadership.
