The Ghana Homeopathy project runs a 2 year Certificate Course in Accra. At present we are training 16 students, who will attend 300 hours of lectures and workshops as well as sitting in on clinics and an additional module in anatomy, physiology and pathology. The course was initiated by volunteer Richard Pitt, former Director of the Pacific Academy of Homeopathy, San Francisco, who spent 8 months in Ghana, having just returned to the USA in August 2010. The sudents who wish can continue for a 3rd year to complete a more advanced 500 hour course. We have been able to send experienced homeopaths and teachers from abroad to train the students.
Working with our Ghanaian partners to develop a high standard of homeopathic education is a key aspect of our work. In Accra we work together with homeopath and pharmacist Julius Berdie to run the training programmes.
We have also sent over 1,000 books donated from the homeopaths across the globe both for the Ghana students’ use and to create a homeopathic library in Kumasi and Accra.

Some student feedback:
Homeopathy is a natural system of healing which has proven and helped me personally. It can correct all things in the human system. The program is a very good way to learn homeopathy. We are hoping to expand the system in Ghana and to help the healing of suffering mankind because a service to mankind is a service to God. Thanks to the Ghana Homeopathy Project team.
I am so gratefulfor the Ghana Homeopathy Project. It is wonderful to specifically have Richard as a teacher. I hope to see this continue. A big thanks to everyone who made this program possible.
Richard has been a very dynamic lecturer in homeopathy. He could teach for many hours in a day. He also helps explain things in detail. He is very patient with his students and also understanding. Within the months of February and June 2010, he has been able to take us through a lot of lessons in homeopathy. We, his students will be missing him so much because of his understanding and support equipping us to become good practitioners. We are grateful to everyone who through diverse ways supported this project. I would like to make this humble appeal that if there is a way to bring Mr Richard Pitt back on this homeopathy project with much financial support to see this homeopathic training institute in Ghana gaining ground, I would be grateful and I believe the Good Lord shall through many diverse ways reward you also.
To Mr Richard Pitt, make Ghana your second home if possible and see this good work you began stay and become a very great institution. God richly bless you. We appreciate and love you.
