Professors in a Changing World
June 24, 2016
Friday 24 June reminds us that learning to be versatile in a changing world is one of the most useful skills professors can teach their students. Learning about the past and the status quo is one thing, but adapting to new challenges, new options and choices is something that each individual must be prepared for, at home, in schools and in the work place.

Progress with Education
3 March 2016
Professors Without Borders is a concept we created because we believe in the power of education. This is not new. What is unique is our expertise in developing programmes that stimulate young adults and prepare them to face the challenges of tomorrow with spirit, optimism, and imagination.
We also focus on developing educational partnerships with the world. A sort of reverse brain-drain where we send our enthusiastic professors to meet and teach young adults in Africa and engage with other educational experts in each country to build on each other’s knowledge and experience, fostering long-term relationships.
Our first port of call in Freetown, Sierra Leone. After the Ebola crisis, we want to be part of the success of this country and believe that educating our young citizens, encouraging their curiosity and imagination and giving them the tools to succeed in realising their dreams.
