PHASE ONE OF THE
PERMANENT CAMPUS FOR
The Tansian University is currently educating 2500 students at its satellite campus in Oba, but the long term plans are to build a permanent campus to educate some 15,000 students on 250 beautiful acres in Umunya, ideally located for airports and ground transportation. The master plan for the permanent university has already been approved and in addition to state-of-the-art academic buildings and student housing will also include a world class athletic complex and leadership training/conference facilities and will incorporate food plots and wind, solar, and hydroelectric power for self sustainable and environmentally friendly food and energy supply.
Tansian University aims to become an international leader in terms of ethics, quality of education, and student experience on par with some of the leading institutions across the world. In line with this vision, a pan-African scholarship is being built to support students from every African nation to attend the Tansian University.
Together these scholarship students will participate not only in an educational experience of the highest standards, but also be in dialogue about leadership, human dignity, ethics and resolution of challenging issues in their own countries. Through this programme they will build long lasting networks with the future leaders of their neighbouring countries, sharing a vision for change and integrity for all.
In conjunction with Tansian University and the four feeder schools in the surrounding area, Gratia and VPF plan to create a sports academy based at a world-class athletic complex on the 250 acre permanent university site. We believe that sport provides an essential element in the education and character development which we are aiming to facilitate in Nigeria. In addition, those select few with the opportunity to transcend their milieu of poverty through sports careers need the concomitant education and character development to flourish fully in a dignified future and to protect them from those who would take advantage or lead them astray.
Gratia International has a dramatic, educational movie, featuring top Hollywood talent and with production already completed, on the issue of unplanned pregnancy. Gratia is currently raising the funding to market and launch the movie as an educational project so that as many students and parents possible can be educated on this key issue of our times.
