Vision and Goals
Pinnacle African University was founded based on our convinction that mankind, especially in Africa and other underdeveloped nations can regain his freedom from poverty, socio-economic underdevelopment and impoverishment through education, as is the case of the rich and developed nations.
The importance of this has been well recognized by member countries of the United Nations, hence making Education For All one of the cardinal points of the Millenium Development Goals (MDGs). We , also believe that tertiary education for the majority, even in developing countries is a realistic possibility in no distant date.
Thus, our emphasis is mostly on tertiary education. Realizing also the fact that quite a good number of our working class individuals would still love to catch up on this missed opportunity, if given the chance, we attach importance to the running of sandwich and weekend courses to come to the aid of these mature students.
Porto-Novo, the location of Pinnacle African University, is the capital city of Benin Republic, a cosmopolitan country on the basis of her history and location. Estimates have it, that Cotonou, the commercial centre, just a few kilometers from Porto-Novo, boasts of about 1,6million English speaking Nigerians alone. This is beside citizens of other nationalities, not only in Cotonou, Porto-Novo and other cities in Benin.
A great majority of these would like their children to graduate from an English speaking University, but cannot afford to send them back home, to ensure parental oversight function for security and economic reasons.
Experience has also shown that many of these parents, mostly traders, having now acquired some economic empowerment, would now themselves love to make up for the missed opportunity of having tertiary education.
They are therefore only very willing to undergo their courses on weekends or evenings, while continuing with their trade or other jobs. The proximity of Porto-Novo to Nigeria, the increased free movement of ECOWAS citizens and labour force, further add to the guarrantee, that there is a large market for this project.
This is in addition to the fact that many French speaking individuals will be happy at an opportunity of having their tertiary education in an English speaking environment.
objectives are :
produce educationally and morally sound and a pride to their families and
-To help in the reduction of educational gap
between the rich and poor individuals and nations.
give mature individuals the opportunity
to make up for missed opportunities
and now achieve their goals of
having tertiary education.
contribute to achievement of the MDGs
of the United Nations of Education for all.
-To extend social services to the community and hence contribute to their socio-economic development
