International Community Schools

Ghana Education

We are invested in International Community Schools through AfricInvest III, which is managed by AfricInvest.

We do not hold direct relationships with the companies that investment funds invest in. Instead, we hold relationships directly with the fund. When investing through investment funds, CDC takes an active role as a limited partner to the fund, working with the fund manager to ensure best practices, including in environment, social and governance matters, and investment management oversight.

The International Community School is located in Kumasi (Ghana) and was established in 2002. It currently has over 1,200 students enrolled from pre-school to senior high school on a 20 acre campus. It follows the British system of edudcation and offers the IGSCE and A level programmes at high school level.
