The course witnessed an active participation of a number of religious leaders, Imams, preachers of mosques and principals of religious schools in Ghana.

The course included several training sessions and educational seminars, which discussed the importance of giving priority to the values of citizenship and peaceful coexistence in Muslim communities. The course also addressed a number of issues about creating and formulating religious and scientific educational curricula, and using the latest technological methods and means in developing and improving the educational process.
This course is an opportunity to review the challenges facing Muslim communities in Ghana, as well as exchange experiences and ideas among the participants, to develop and improve religious education and discourse in Muslim communities. The desired goal of the course was achieved by providing an opportunity for everyone to exchange experiences, ideas and opinions, and building cooperation networks among the participants.
The lecturers in the course reviewed the latest developments in the labour market and their impact on the issue of governing religious institutions in Muslim communities. The training sessions discussed the importance of religious education and its role in building the personalities of young Muslims, and enhancing cultural awareness and educational attainment among students.
This course aims to raise the scientific and educational attainment of the participants, enable them to develop their skills in education and religious elocution, and promote belonging, peaceful coexistence and cooperation among all members of Muslim communities.
