What We Do

Les Passerelles Globale seeks to make the French culture and language easily accessible within English speaking countries and communities in West Africa, starting in Ghana, by bringing the Anglophone and Francophone communities together, and by providing resources and support for volunteers running French language programs.

Our Story

Since 1963 Marion Lowe McLean, founder of Les Passerelles Globale, has been a professional educator and a champion for education equality, community development and finding solutions to language as a barrier to cultural inclusiveness. Among her many achievements Marion started a breakfast and lunch programme which became the model for schools in Montreal; was a founding member of The Quebec Board of Black Educators (QBBE), and won the prestigious Woman of Distinction for Community Services award from the Circle de Femme (under the auspices of the then Governor-General of Quebec) in 2003.

Originally from Jamaica, West Indies, with family ties in Ghana, West Africa, Marion emigrated to Montreal, Quebec in her 20’s. She has witnessed Quebec become “a nation within a nation” and the heart of French-speaking Canada; Quebec is in a similar situation to Ghana being a French province surrounded on all sides by English speaking provinces and the USA.

Marion’s instinctive and personal interest in Ghanaian culture led her to see what no-one else has seen; a tangible opportunity to help Ghana’s regional integration and economic prosperity by becoming bilingual. Using extensive knowledge and experience gained in Quebec, practical and effective French language programmes can be introduced in Ghana without extensive design and development delays.

This idea was formed after a conversation with the High Commissioner of the Republic of Ghana, The Honourable H.E. Joseph Ayikoi Otoo, at the Ghana High Commission in Ottawa. After further talks with staff at the High Commission, a group was formed to discuss the possibility of working on a project called French in Ghana and to brainstorm ideas.  The group presented to the High Commissioner on 30 January 2020. As a result, the High Commissioner referred the group to the department of Educational Services. At a subsequent meeting in Ghana with Assistant Director of Educational Services, Pat Assan,  the proposal was well received and a formal proposal to the Director of Educational Services was requested and submitted.

Since the meeting with the Director of Educational Services, a great deal of progress has been made. Les Passerelles Globale has been formally registered in Ghana and several pilot projects are underway in Accra. This demonstrates the wealth of opportunities available to build and develop as an organisation dedicated to socio-cultural equality, charity and education. The pilot projects described in the Products and Services section below.
