The Kokrobitey Institute is a unique environment for learning and creative exploration. Our mission is to support development by facilitating projects and programs that demonstrate the intersections between Art, Culture, Design, Health, & Sustainable Development through Literacy. We define literacy as the ability to read, write, and comprehend the written and spoken word. We also define literacy as the ability to read the world; to be equipped with the cultural knowledge that allows communities to thrive in a sustainable environment.
We believe Ghana has the gift of hindsight, in the midst of a worldwide discourse on sustainability. It is not only necessary, but imperative that we avoid repeating the same mistakes made in other parts of the world by perpetuating functioning green systems and preserving traditional knowledge whose practices have preserved the natural landscapes for generations.
