Founder & Senior Strategist
Eby Aka, the founder of Global Caravan for Education and Cultural Exchange, was born and raised in the West African country of Côte d’Ivoire.
As a trained English teacher, Eby Aka started his career teaching in local private schools before he was accepted to teach French and African Studies at the international Christian Academy of West Africa from 1996 through 2000.
As years passed, his interest for multicultural activities grew, along with the interest to share that knowledge with other children abroad. The initiative led him to travel to the United State, where he lived and worked as a teacher in Minnesota, at the Concordia Language Villages; Virginia; and Washington, D.C.
Eby Aka has been president of the American Studies Association (AMSA) at the University of Bouake, Côte d’Ivoire and member of the section of the Lions Club International in Côte d’Ivoire.
Born in a small village himself, Eby Aka traveled to the United States with in mind the idea to do something to help educate the less privileged children, who, like him don’t have the resources they need for a better education. It is a cause that is directly linked to his own experience as a child; and he’s answered the call for help by founding Global Caravan for Education and Cultural Exchange.
Eby Aka has also authored the inspirational novel The Walk to the Stage of Honor.
He currently lives with his wife Marie Ode and son Aaron Ebby, Jr. in Alexandria, Virginia.
