Our Team


Darrold Cordes – Project Director

Darrold holds a Bachelor of Technology Degree (Electronic Engineering) for the University of Adelaide and Graduate Diploma in Mathematics from what is now the University of South Australia.

His involvement in West Africa stems from observations made during many visits to the region on the condition of public infrastructure, health care services, education and employment. He is of the view that changes can be made to develop sustainable business models in agribusiness, manufacturing and associated industries that will drive significant economic growth in the future.

The Funding Ghana Graduates Today initiative was inspired by the lack of meaningful job opportunities and role models to motivate the many unemployed graduates of Ghana to become self-employed.
