The staff at the EG West Centre are actively involved in providing educational opportunities through self organised learning environments (SOLES) and schools. Professor James Tooley and local entrepreneur Ken Donkoh have been instrumental in initiating a chain of Omega schools in Ghana with another embryonic chain starting in Sierra Leone. Professor Sugata Mitra is active in developing new SOLES in India and the UK through his TED prize, but some of the greatest impact is through the inspiration that he has given to others round the world to start their own SOLES, many of which are linked through the School in the Cloud.
