Guaranty Trust Bank plc, parent company of Guaranty Trust Bank (Ghana) Limited, has provided a unique educational experience to students throughout Africa at the Ghana-India Kofi Annan Centre of Excellence in ICT as part of its corporate social responsibility (CSR).

Participants consist of students from seven African countries, namely Ghana, Nigeria, Kenya, Gambia, Cameroun, Sierra Leone and South Africa. Two non-African participating countries are the UK and USA.

This is the fourth by GTBank and demonstrates the bank's commitment to the development of the African child through its support for the African Gifted Foundation, an initiative set up to promote Africa's top emerging talents for the development and sustainability of the African continent.

This year's African Gifted Foundation summer (vacation) academy currently underway at the Kofi Annan Centre, Ridge, Accra, has brought together exceptionally talented students between the ages of 14 and 19 from different African countries.

The students were taught various subjects such as space science / exploration, cyber-security (codes and ciphers) and global commodities trading by experts in the industries, leading universities in the UK and diverse African countries during the one week camp. The students were also offered the opportunity to tour some institutions in Ghana, such as GTBank, Valco and Daily Graphic.

Commenting on the initiative, the Managing Director of Guaranty Trust Bank plc; Mr Segun Agbaje, stated that 'this is our fourth year of sponsoring this initiative'.

'The Bank recognises the importance of educating the people in our community and we have done this through a series of programmes that are impactful and beneficial to their wellbeing, day-to-day activities and social interaction,' he said.

The Managing Director of Guaranty Trust Bank (Ghana) Limited, Mr Lekan Sanusi, on his part said 'At the core of GTBank values is people and development;  It has been our promise to add value to all stakeholders and also create role models for society; and this is exactly what the Bank is doing'.
