Tamale Institute of Cross-Cultural Studies (TICCS)
The Tamale Institute of Cross-Cultural Studies is a research and teaching facility and is a part of the Catholic Church of Northern Ghana. This is a place where you can expand your mind while focusing on your commitment to the Catholic faith. There are a number of different courses to choose from, with students and interns coming from all over the world to be a part of this amazing learning experience.
A number of well-known schools and NGOs have worked with the Tamale Institute over the years to help integrate missionaries and workers coming into this area into the life of Ghanaian people who live here. Some examples of these are the US Peace Corps, One-World, the British High Commission, and the Canadian High Commission.
With technology advancing every day it can start to seem like the world is eternally getting smaller. But that doesn't mean that there isn't a lot to learn and new experiences to have. When you reach Ghana you can start learning about the area and its people through the Orientation Course. Then you might want to move on to one of the Study Tours. Or begin your Cross-Cultural Training.
