  3. Dr Violet Makuku says:

    Hallo my dear,

    As for now, AAU does not have sponsorship for this workshop. Kindly make an effort to get sponsorship. At the moment we do not have sponsorship. I wish I could help.

  4. This is so insightful. Very relevant to my job as a Research Fellow. How I wish I could attend. My only challenge is funding.

    • Dr Violet Makuku says:

      How are you? Actually the amount has been reduced to US$300 for member universities and US$350 for Non-member universities. Please spread the word. This was possible because we are now doing it at our AAU Secretariat instead of the hotel and we will provide transport to pick those who will stay in guest houses and hotels around the AAU. Hotel Names will be availed. So spread the word to many.

  5. Elias Rashidi says:

    I really wanted to attend, do you have affordable accommodation in Accra i see the registration fees doesn’t include accommodation and can one pay the registration fee on the day of commencement in Accra at the workshop venue

    • Dr Violet Makuku says:

      Yes, we have affordable accommodation close by. We have actually reduced the amount to US$300 for member universities and US$350 for Non-member universities. Please spread the word. This was possible because we are now doing it at our AAU Secretariat instead of the hotel and we will provide transport to pick those who will stay in guest houses and hotels around the AAU. Names of these will be availed. So spread the word to many.
