Donor Profile:

From Ashesi skeptic to strong supporter

- Paul Maritz, CEO, VMWare; Board Chair, Grameen Foundation

When Patrick Awuah (Ashesi’s founder) told Paul his plans for Ashesi, Paul wondered if a straightforward technical college might be a better fit for Africa.

Then, Paul visited Ashesi and saw, first hand, how Ashesi’s unique curriculum is fostering the leadership qualities Africa needs.

Paul Maritz on Ashesi:

Fundamental change in Africa requires enlightened, committed and home-grown African leadership.

Ashesi is a uniquely African institution that empowers bright, ambitious African youths to think for themselves and prepares them to develop their own solutions to their continent’s challenges.

Ashesi is thus both a strategic and highly leveraged way to provide support.
