What is AstrologyPsych?
AstrologyPsych is an organisation twinned with the Ghana Cultural and voluntary society. The Ghana cultural and voluntary society was set up with the aim to promote a positive representation of Ghana abroad. Through economic and educational twinning , this aim can still be met even during covid. AstrologyPsych is an online service platform that is building the bridge between locals in Ghana, West Africa and the global market abroad.
This objective in the past has been met through education,summer schools, internet (digital skills) and the opening of a library and toy borrowing service. During covid, community outreach is still required but must be facilitated differently.
Twinning as a tool to build:
Twinning is a tool utilised to promote administrative cooperation and assist within candidate countries and is a useful tool to promote peace. As an institution building tool, twinning is a partnership between public administrations and accepted mandated bodies of another Country with the objective of achieving joint outcomes jointly agreed with an independent body
In 2021 it is still an important institution building tool.
The Basic principles of twinning are
Projects are agreed around jointly agreed aims using jointly agreed upon objectives.
The recipient group retains ownership of the project
The recipient selects an independent body to represent their interest to ensure and avoid violations of core principles.
Twinning projects must provide operational results and reports.
The partners commit themselves to achieving the basic results.
Twinning is a joint project with a grant element
The achievements of the projects remain as a permanent asset for the benefited partner.
After the Twinning project is completed, the published works would be owned by the respective writers. More progress will be achieved working together combining charitable aims to objectively provide a solution. The Twinning initiative is created to support, supplement but not replace, the current education system of Ghana.
