SHSS Doctoral Student Inspires a Project to Help a Village in Ghana

Reverend Linus Nangwele

Reverend Linus Nangwele, doctoral student in the Department of Conflict Analysis and Resolution (DCAR) in the Graduate School of Humanities and Social Sciences (SHSS) and a priest serving St. Anthony’s Roman Catholic Church in Ft Lauderdale, helped to inspire a church project to reach out to Kalsegra, his home village in Ghana.

Reverend Nangwele has been a priest in residence serving St. Anthony’s parish while pursing his Ph.D. at NSU. In addition to his dream of obtaining his doctoral degree, his desire has been to help his African village build a much needed new school and medical clinic. After mentioning this dream to parishioners at St. Anthony’s, a new project was born. Parishioners raised the necessary funds, and work began last year. Nagwele’s dream became a reality when the new buildings were dedicated in August. The village now has a new school, medical clinic, a tractor for farming, and a new church. Reverend Nangwele welcomed parishioners from Ft. Lauderdale who came to Ghana for the dedication. Parishioners are continuing this project and plan to continue this global outreach partnership with the people of Kalsegra.

In addition to this project, Nangwele has been working on an environmental research project in Ghana and has recently commenced work on his dissertation proposal.
