The CEO of Horseman Shoes, Tonyi Senayah on 4th September, celebrated his 31st birthday with women of Beads of Hope in Paga and also donated sandals to some students in Navrongo in the Upper East region.
According to Mr Senayah, he first got into contact with the founder and CEO of Beads of Hope Miss Nafisa Adams when she sent him a message on Facebook telling him what she does, how he inspires her from a distance and wanted him to mentor her.
“I was rather inspired by her story when i got into contact with her and thought the world should hear her story” Mr Senayah added.
He later decided to visit Paga and see what Beads of Hope does and spend time with the women.
Beads of Hope is an enterprise set up to economically empower old women who were not making much income from subsistence farming, widowed women, teenage mothers and school dropouts. Miss Adams currently works with 60 women in Paga and 10 head porters in Accra.
“Even though my business is still at the building stages, a lot young people look up to me and I cannot deny but share with them my modest experience so far”
“It has been an experience that will not be lost on me and become a fading memory soon to come. It will stay with me for a long time. It is my fervent prayer that Nafisa and the many other young people in their own little corners will take charge of changing their world.” Mr Senayah concluded.
He was grateful to Mabel Simpson (of MSimps) who made a cash donation to Beads of Hope for the purchase of mats, and Vera Ewura Obeng (of Vera Obeng Photography).
