She said “we dedicate a lot to educational connections and we are eager to strengthen the relations between Israel and the University of Cape Coast.”

On his part, Prof. Johnson Nyarko Boampong expressed gratitude to the embassy for the presentation of the of the Homebiogas.

He also indicated that “although the University of Cape Coast was set up to be a leader in teacher education, it is now expanding its mandate to the agricultural, health and entrepreneurial sectors.” This he emphasized opens the University up for more partnerships that will position the institution to become a highly entrepreneurial learning centre.
