Anyone ever wondered what happened to the environmentally deprived citizens in the country? What does Education even mean to a child that has no Breakfast and isn’t hopeful of Lunch? Is this child with no books and Uniforms ever going to have a successful Education without aid? Well… on the bright side comes Lead for Ghana who seeks to take up the mantle and provide every Ghanaian child an excellent Education by 2050. This is no just ordinary Education but one oriented with Leadership training to make her learners not only literates but Leaders who would put things right in our world with it’s ever growing problems. I bet this is going to be a eminent milestone that would project our beloved country to the world!!
Amid the daily troubles of life and human adaptations for survival, nothing has such been a global headache like the Novel Corona Virus. This pandemic has displaced man’s ordinary ways of life that man, now trembles with fear to shake his fellow beings hands. Government’s in various countries are putting in place stringent measures to curb this canker, but I tell you, it’s all up to you and me to do our work.
Moreover,medical experts around the world have proposed that wearing a mask is effective for mitigating the spread of the virus. Hence, every now and then, media across the country goes on advocating the use of mask. But with our beloved country’s high poverty and illiteracy rate, puts one in a fix as to how many people would practice this life saving activity in this trying times.
Well hang on, Lead for Ghana never seizes to amaze us with their enviable works in community outreach. They have rolled up their selves and made a sling shot at this pandemic with their ” Project Mask on”. Her patriotic fellows recently visited the Fuo community within the Sagnarigu to distribute masks and sensitize people on effective health measures against the virus. This good work done was made possible through her fellows including: Sandra Aidoo- Islamic Junior high school, Tamale; Tuarik Alhassan- Hurriya Islamic Junior High School, Tamale; Maame Yaaa Adwubi- Fuo A.M.E Zion Basic School, Tamale; Micheal Kofi Asante Okyere- Fuo A.M.E Zion Basic school ,Tamale; Richard Kugblenu- Sakasaka Junior High School, Tamale and lastly, Joachim Boadi Bardoe- Rawdatul Atfal E/A Junior High School, Savelugu. What a heartfelt joy watching these fellows distribute masks to the less privileged and making them feel loved and cared for. This is indeed a Breathtaking and Terrific job done by Lead for Ghana. Kindly support in any form and together help Lead for Ghana uplift our beloved country beyond the grip of her insurmountable problems. And oh, don’t forget to keep that nose under a nose mask and stay safe!!!
