The Mmofra Trom Center

The primary goal of the Mmofra Trom Education Center is to provide access to education, health care, job skills training, and employment opportunities.

Olan Adjetey, director of the center, first visited Bentley in July 2005 to explore the potential for a partnership. Olan has since been back to Bentley in both 2007 and 2008 for continuing discussions about the Mmofra Trom Education Center’s five-year strategic plan and financial goals, as well as Bentley’s role going forward. Staff also includes two accountants, and a "school full" of adminstrators and teachers.
