Appolonia host discussion on the future of real estate
Appolonia, the mixed-use urban development near Accra, has hosted the first in a series of discussions devoted to empowering the public with knowledge about real estate. The evening cocktail gave participants an opportunity to hear first-hand from leading real estate experts on property financing and urban planning.
The well-attended event, hosted at the Jaguar Land Rover showroom near Opeibea, featured presentations and interaction with Kojo Addo -Kufuor, Chief Operating Officer, Ghana Home Loans, and leading urban planning specialist Dr Kwadwo Ohene Sarfo, together with management and staff of Appolonia.
“I haven’t see any real estate project as well executed as Appolonia,” said Kojo Addo-Kufuor, “in providing this evenings platform, Appolonia is providing a great service to the real estate industry and to prospective investors.”
Holger Adam, Ghana Country Head for Rendeavour, Appolonia’s developer, said, “We are pleased to present members of the public with an opportunity to educate themselves and make informed real estate decisions, which will ultimately lead to a wider understanding of the real estate market in Ghana and how it affects us all.”
The discussion sessions will be held regularly, with a number of other real estate experts already billed to speak.
According to the event attendees, the discussion series is a welcome development. “I am impressed to see that Appolonia is setting itself apart in the market,” Alhaji Mustapha Garba said. “Most developers are too quick to push their product. I appreciate that Appolonia is giving us access to experts, so we can take informed decisions.”
Rendeavour Signs MOU With USAID To Support African Youth
On the margins of the UN General Assembly, and in support of President Barack Obama’s signature effort to invest in the next generation of African leaders, Rendeavour signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) to foster youth leadership opportunities that promote growth and strengthen Africa-based business and entrepreneurship, civil society, and public administration.
The Young African Leaders Initiative (YALI) is a U.S. government program managed by the U.S. Department of State, USAID, and the U.S. African Development Foundation to support young African leaders as they spur growth and prosperity, strengthen democratic governance, and enhance peace and security across Africa.
Rendeavour’s in-kind contribution of $1 million to the YALI project demonstrates the company’s commitment to developing Africa’s future leadership through mentorship, skills training, and professional development opportunities. “We believe that building tomorrow’s cadre of African leaders is the highest-impact way to develop sustainably,” says Frank Mosier, Rendeavour’s chairman. “With more than 200 million young people on the continent, the key to Africa’s success lies in preparing its next generation for economic and political leadership.”
