The Abrantie College of Cosmetology and Creative Arts have formally launched its Foundation in Accra.
The launch of the Foundation, which coincides with the 10th anniversary celebration of the school, was aimed at stabilizing the operational abilities of the school.
“The Director of the school, per this arrangement would contribute 10 percent of his salary to the foundation; the managers will contribute five percent while the teaching and non-teaching staff will contribute one percent each of their salaries to the foundation to support brilliant but needy students”, King David Thompson, Director of the College has said.
The Foundation, he noted has already supported 10 students at its formal launch to consolidate its goodwill.
“Abrantie College is Ghana’s foremost fashion and cosmetology school with a long and distinguished history dating back to 2007. The school started as a clinic then to a college and we want to do more for the youth”, he added.
The school has been able to achieve much and moved further by creating a niche.
The college he said has introduced the School of Fashion, which has brought about the modeling classes, arts and design as part of hair and beauty programmes.
“The college is now registered with COTVET to run on CBT. The college has trained over 6000 students in 2 year full time program and over 2000 on short course.
As the Director of the College, I am truly grateful to everyone who volunteered more especially my sponsors for buying into our dream” he said.
