EDUPLEXES


Education Programs in Life, Experience, Expertise and Societies

01. Overview

The Ikoku Education Programs in Life, Experience, Expertise and Societies (EDUPLEXES) have been proposed as essential to the work of each and every one of the Trusts Areas of Focus and Philanthropy. All Trusts Areas have been established to fulfill a core mission of The Ikoku Trusts and The Ikoku Foundations to increase the public awareness, public knowledge, and public interest concerning Africa and its global diasporas, including communities in the Americas, Asia, Australasia/Oceania, and Europe. EDUPLEXES shall be essential to that mission in the following ways:

Enhancing Life

The Ikoku Charitable Trusts and The Ikoku Foundations understand that the fulfillment of their originating charitable purposes require programs that foster public learning at and about each major period of life, as such periods are lived, described and imagined by peoples in civic communities. It is our intention to have EDUPLEXES meet that need, and in each of the fields of concern in our Trusts Areas.

Enhancing Experience

Such programs shall also focus on developing and using experience. Certainly in the professional and career senses of the word. But also with a central understanding of experiential learning as a vital basis for individual, interpersonal and public education.

Enhancing Expertise

And certain EDUPLEXES shall help with acquiring, deepening and rigorously expanding expertise, offering opportunities to develop field-specific competencies as well as join in collaborations across fields, skills, and knowledges.

Enhancing Societies

In these ways, The Ikoku Charitable Trusts and The Ikoku Foundations intend for EDUPLEXES to enhance civic life and societies, to more specifically reduce perennial inequities in the varied communities we serve, and to ultimately improve relations among peoples and societies in Africa and those across the world.
