Study Abroad with IIHFD
We at the IIHFD through our excellent youth leadership development program—the Human Factor Leadership Academy (HFLA)—are committed to producing Honest and Compassionate Leaders who will serve as Effective Leaders in the various marketplaces they serve at—regardless of whether the countries in which they serve are either their own home countries or any others within which they currently dwell. Our educators at the Human Factor Leadership Academy (HFLA) will educate, provide excellent health care, and invest in Africa’s children as well as the youth. The graduate from the HFLA will grow in moral character. They will subsequently make a lasting difference in diverse spheres of life in their own communities and countries as well.
HFLA’s growing Preschool to 12th Grade is located in Akatsi, Volta Region of Ghana on a thirty acre plot of land that is just outside Akatsi. Although our academy is in Ghana, the academy will serve as a learning institute for the entire continent of Africa.
The Human Factor Leadership Academy relies on the energy, talent, compassion, and commitment of its volunteers, international students and financial partners. We believe in the capabilities of Africans to change their lives for the better. Our goal is to provide appropriate resources, excellent guidance, the required enablement, and a human factor-based education that will lead to the production of honest and compassionate leaders in the long term. We will continue to invest our resources into the children’s education program so they can bring hope to their own people regarding a better future.
The Human Factor Leadership Academy is the first international development educational program of the International Institute for Human Factor Development–IIHFD (USA) Incorporated. The IIHFD is a 501(c) (3) non-profit organization.
