The Kofi Annan International Peacekeeping Training Centre (KAIPTC) in the Ghanaian capital, Accra, has over the past ten years trained more than 10,000 people from all over the world.
Since it was established in 2003, the Centre has conducted more than 230 courses in various aspects of peacekeeping operations.

He says its objective was to tap into the long-standing experience of the Ghanaian Armed Forces in international peacekeeping.
