In 2012, we are celebrating the Golden Jubilee anniversary of GILLBT, which was established in 1962.

To commemorate the hard work, dedication and accomplishments of the past, and how we define the way forward, we have organised a series of events:

  1. I was at the Conference on Language and Culture in National Development at the University of Ghana and was very much enlightened by the presentations. Thanks to GILLBT and Institute of African Studies for 50 years collaboration in language development.
