As part of its commitment to empowering young people in the country, Women in Vodafone Ghana in partnership with the Leading Ladies Network, a non-governmental organisation, has organised a day’s mentorship programme at the Christ the King Hall, for over 350 school girls from seven junior high schools within the Greater Accra region.
The school girls, who were from Prince of Peace International School, Kaneshie 1 Junior High School, Winston Salem Junior High School, Rev. Thomas Clegg Memorial School, Osu Salem School and Christ The King School, were taken through a range of topics including building self-confidence; talent discovery, making the best out of school and building strategic friendship and network.
‘I really appreciate the valuable knowledge, advice and encouragement our mothers and mentors shared with us today. I want to be a powerful and influential woman in the future and I believe these will help me in making the right decision and choices to achieve my objectives in life.’ said 14-year-old participant, Emma Owusu in an interview.
Speaking at the programme, the Human Resources Director of Vodafone Ghana, Stella Agyenim-Boateng said, ”We believe we have a role to play in shaping the future of these young ladies and dedicating our time to share with them some lessons and experiences in life will guide and empower them to achieve their full potential.”
Stella Agyenim-Boateng encouraged the young girls to believe in their dreams and aspirations despite challenges they may be confronted with today. She urged the young girls to view higher education as attractive and necessary for their development.
