WHO WE ARE

 

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.

WHERE WE DO WHAT WE DO

The Alero Olympio Design Center, named in honor of our dear friend, architect, and sustainable development advocate Alero, is made up of the Education House, Organic Garden, Materials Workshops, and Showroom/Classroom Space. This is our central design & fabrication facility for Programs, Projects, & Product Design, exploring a vast array of topics that we view as effecting development. Whether our discourse leads to the creation of Literacy Educational Materials, Traditional Skills Workshops, Agriculture Technology Experimentation, Upcycled Contemporary Design Products, Collaborative Problem Solving Discussions, Corporate Partnerships, Nouveau Ghanain Cuisine Cooking Classes or Artist Residencies, we feel that this multi faceted approach reflects a thriving community within a developing landscape. This Design Center also acts as the central figure in our goal to distribute similar models of Resource Centers as education, production, and community spaces throughout Ghana.
