I am passionate about
People throughout my community awake each morning under very different circumstances. They constitute a majority of the less fortunate 6.6 billion people, with inadequate food, shelter, poor health, environment, HIV/AIDS, and uneducated. An “extended” family in my community consists, of eight or more people; including parent, several children, two grandparents, some aunt, and uncles living in a one or two poorly constructed house(s) with no electricity and water supply, as tenant farmers or traders owned by an absentee landlord who lived in the city. The adult cannot read and write; the younger children attend “cieto” (public school) and do not proceed beyond basic primary education. There is often only one or two meals a day, which rarely changes, and insufficient to alleviate the children’s hunger pain. They work hard under a hot sun and their aspirations for a better life are continually being snuffed out. The only relief from the daily struggle for physical survival lies in their spiritual traditional. My passion is to see my people free from such basic human needs focused on delivering the core values of development for the less privilege and underdeveloped economies in a global perspective to achieve the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).
I have started small in my community with Databank, AIESEC, and the Private Universities Students Association of Ghana (PUSAG). I want to see my people enjoy affordable healthcare, good drinking water and sanitize environment. As a Junior Mentor with Databank Foundation, I am working on building committed leaders for development by encouraging the youth to be dreamers, helping to instil a positive self image and identity, fostering personal development among young people to be effective and efficient leaders to discover and fulfil their purpose in life. I am doing this with a proactive working team to achieve this aim for our mentees. I am working with AIESEC, a global, non-political, independent, non-profit organization on campus, on an ASK project focused on educating the youth on HIV/AIDS and a project coordinator on Integrated Culture Project (ICP) focused on teaching the youth on culture. As a Local PUSAG President on campus, I am working with the school representative council, the second time, to embark on a tree planting plan to restore the green environment. Working with Databank, AIESEC and as a Local PUSAG President is in right direction to satisfy my quest of serving humanity and to achieve the MDGs.
