Our Work

Summer Camps

Open Mind Africa has been organizing annual summer camps for students in Ghana since 2017. The camp provides an excellent opportunity for students to learn different SEL strategies, receive academic guidance and counseling and enjoy international exchanges.

K.I Education

The Kinesthetic Intelligence Education (KIE) program, with its roots in Social Emotional Learning (SEL), originated as an extension of an SEL initiative conducted by OMA, with the mission to revolutionize learning by tapping into the innate wisdom of the body-mind connection.

Open Mind Africa held its inaugural Educator Summit on July 21, 2018. Based on the success of the inaugural Educator Summit, OMA plans to continue hosting these types of trainings with as many educators as possible.
