Instant noodles brand Indomie is supporting a youth camp for children from deprived districts in order to inculcate in them a mindset to set and achieve high targets in life.
The young people from six districts in the Volta Region, namely Afadzato South, Kpando Municipal, Hohoe Municipal, North and South Dayi, as well as Nkwanta Districts and Ningo Pramprah in the Greater Accra region, are spending a minimum of one week each at the camp in Hohoe to acquire various skill sets outside the regular school curriculum.
The Nneka Youth Foundation, which has been organising the camp meeting for the past eight years hopes 3,000 young people, will benefit from the camp meeting this year when it comes to a close by the end of August.
Speaking in an interview, Founder of Nneka Youth Foundation, Cecilia Fiaka, explained that each week, new set of young people from the selected districts come to the camp for a period of one week.
She said the programme is exclusively targeted at children from deprived communities and aimed at giving such children the opportunity to dream big, and skills to be able to achieve such great dreams.
She was grateful to Indomie for supporting the programme.
“Indomie came in to support us at a time that no one was willing to sponsor us and for that we are extremely grateful to them,” she stated.
As part of the support, nutritious Indomie instant noodles are fed to all participants daily.
Events Manager at Indomie, Agnes Botchway, underscored the relevance of youth camp meetings and added that the annual event, organised by Nneka, was particularly important because it gave opportunity to people from deprived communities who would never have had such opportunity in their life time.
She urged the participants to take advantage of the opportunities and set very high targets for themselves.
