O’ia-da International Inc is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization. Since 1997, Oiada has been dedicated to providing educational programs and services that empower students to become global citizens. O’ia-da’s latest project is the Akoma Ntoso Cultural Centers (ANCC). The ANCC is currently connecting students in the U.S. and Africa by utilizing our 21st century telepresence educational centers. The primary goal of the ANCC is to increase student test scores, decrease drop-out rates and to reduce the achievement gap of schools. We utilize state of the art videoconferencing technology to connect students with students in Africa. Through “LIVE” face to face educational and cultural exchanges, students become excited about learning. Our telepresence centers bring the classroom to life for the students while at the same time serving to increase their language arts, writing, public speaking, presentation, research, foreign language and critical thinking skills.

Julie M. Tovay-Ryder, Social Studies Dept., Franklin High School, Franklin, NJ
“Our students had a remarkable time learning about the history, economics, geography, social and political struc-ture and the culture of Ghana. The exchange of questions and answers between students was truly 21st century learning. All the students agreed that our time together was too short for there were so many more questions they had to ask.
The following day the students came to class singing the song they heard the day before. I had the students look their Akan names and they are proudly displaying those names on their school papers. We were truly amazed at the similarities between the students and fascinated by the differences. We were honored to build a bridge across the Atlantic Ocean to better understand another culture. Much appreciation for your wonderful program.”
