The mission of SOS Hermann Gmeiner International College (SOS-HGIC) is to provide a school of academic excellence for students from SOS Children’s Villages from all over Africa, together with students from the host country, Ghana, in a spirit of Pan-Africanism and an awareness of the social needs of society.
The school’s philosophy embraces internationalism in its widest sense, a commitment to uplift Africa and active service to the community. Its educational mission is holistic in nature, aiming to develop all students into confident adults capable of facing the challenges of a fast-changing world, by inculcating in them critical and analytical abilities which will equip them to become compassionate thinkers who are aware of their common humanity, with a belief and pride in themselves as Africans. The College’s ultimate mission is to graduate life-long learners who are fully prepared for the best universities worldwide and who are also committed to putting their knowledge, skills and resources into developing their continent, Africa.
SOS-HGIC became the first IB school in Ghana when it introduced the IB Diploma Programme in 1993. The school now offers both the MYP and DP and hopes events likes this would open doors for collaboration and sharing of best practice among educators. We look forward to hosting the first ever Kognity Conference in Ghana and Africa in February 2023 and we anticipate a fruitful engagement between educators who attend this event.
