shuttle-atlantis-sts135-launch-padGhana is set to become the first country in Africa to get a Spaceship Launch pad, following a partnership deal between KESHE Foundation Ghana and BONADES Limited, a Ghanaian-owned Construction Engineering Management (CEM) company.

The two companies are combining their expertise for the development and construction of the first-of-its-kind Spaceship Research Centre in Ghana.

The agreement comes after the completion of the feasibility studies and preliminary architectural and engineering designs, and presentation to both the Client and foreign Investors.

The KESHE Spaceship Research Centre construction will start at the Ghana Atomic Energy Commission in Accra.
KESHE Foundation International would invest a total of $21 million on the project, which would consist of an Administration block, Healthcare facility (Clinic), Factory, Research Centre and the first African Flight launch pad.

With the building and opening of this new centre within the next 12 months, in line with President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo’s one-district-one-factory agenda, the Foundation would bring new cutting-edge technologies to Ghana and make Ghana one of the leading nations in the world of Science and Spaceship while providing decent sustainable job opportunities to both ordinary citizens and high-earned skilled world-class Technologists and Scientists.

In October 2016, following the conference organised by the Keshe Foundation International, in collaboration with Ghana Atomic Energy Commission (GAEC) and subsequent meetings, led to formation of Keshe Foundation Ghana, a Ghanaian registered company jointly owned by the two organizations.
