We aim to train and educate people so that they can train and educate themselves.

Quality Distance Learning Team has been supporting UK Distance Learning Students at our Resource Centre in Accra, by offering academic support and practical problem-solving, discussion groups, tutorials, face-to-face help and email and phone communications, for the past sixteen years. We offer educational advice,  help with academic writing and study skills, and workshops.
We aim to inspire children with excitement that will lead them to take up STEM subjects.

Activities based mainly around the Planetarium include workshops for science teachers, weekend maths tutorials, and an introduction to science activities through demonstrations of science magic and hands-on activities.  We host groups of schoolchildren and teachers for planetarium shows on weekdays, and events for families and the public at weekends. The Astronomical Society of Ghana meets at the planetarium several times each year. We also visit school Astronomy clubs.  The planetarium we built is the country's first public digital planetarium, the only one of its kind in East, West or Central Africa.  The dome was built with equipment donated by organisations in America and Sweden, and donations towards furnishing, telescopes and repairs from individuals in Ghana and the UK.  The Planetarium Science Centre is a non-profit organisation.  We welcome donations to help with maintenance and repairs.
