She’s brilliant, educated, creative, and driven — at just 24, she’s already a force to be reckoned with. Ghana’s youngest CEO, Caroline Esinam Adzogble, has every intention of making Ghana and the world in which she grew up a far better place. And she wants to do it right now.
The list of Caroline Adzogble’s accomplishments is breathtaking. Caroline founded Potters International College, an online educational institute, in January of 2016. Fully accredited by the Ghana Education Service, Potters offers two different programs of study, a certificate program and a degree program. The curriculum contains a wide variety of online courses, running the gamut from languages (English, French, and Spanish) through Creative Writing and Journalism. Caroline’s goal in founding Potters International College was to make advanced education available for busy people; hence she’s given special emphasis to career-enhancing courses such as graphic design, digital marketing, and financial trading. Making technological work for educational goals forms the basis of Caroline’s pedagogical philosophy.
Potters International College grew out of one of Caroline’s earliest enterprises, the Ashley Hills IT Center, a digital training center that she started while still in school herself. Fascinated with the whole field of Information Technology, Caroline decided to open her own IT school. At the time, her father had several old computers and some office space that he wasn’t using, and Ashley Hills IT Center was born. But it wasn’t long before Caroline wanted to expand and diversify her school, and from this dream and her father’s old equipment was born Potters International College.
Caroline Adzogble also founded and heads C-Tech Solutions. This online company provides web services such as design, security, and SEO-enhanced marketing for a variety of businesses and organization.
But two online enterprises just weren’t enough for Caroline Adzogble. She is also the founder and head of The Mercy Heart Foundation, a not-for-profit organization. The goals of The Mercy Heart Foundation are to raise people out of poverty by providing quality education and training and to invest in young people with vision, dubbed “teenpreneurs” One of the charity’s current projects is Mobile Education in India, aimed at the urban poor in New Delhi. The goal is to provide students with mobile devices through which they can take courses in IT and business management.
Even as a schoolgirl, Caroline demonstrated her vision, drive, and commitment. Rather than finish her secondary schooling in the traditional way, she opted for an online degree through Ideal College, and then went on to earn university credit, again online, at the Edinburgh Business School. In this way, through personal experience with online learning, Caroline came to understand the potential of the internet to provide quality education that was affordable and could fit into a busy person’s life. She developed then the desire to open up this world of opportunity to others, and remains committed to the goal of improving the world by creating paths to a better education.
