Modernising digital education is my priority” – Newly appointed board member of Educational Communities Worldwide reveals.

Award-winning Digital Media Expert, Edward Asare has been appointed by Educational Communities Worldwide as a Board Member and Marketing Committee Chair.

The 11-member board is expected to lead Educom’s expansion across Africa.
