The regional mentorship programme organized by the Miss Ghana Foundation has commenced in the Northern regional capital, Tamale.
The initiative which seeks to mentor students [mainly women] in some selected Senior High Schools will continue throughout the ten regions of Ghana.
The team will be led by the Miss Ghana Foundation Ambassadors; Miss Ghana 2012, Miss Naa Okailey Shooter and her two runners up [Miss Nadia Ntanu and Miss Jennifer Anna.]
The mentorship programme aims at developing and instilling soft skills that will help improve the academic performance of adolescent young ladies, as well as prepare them for work and life in general. Among the numerous topics to be discussed include Entrepreneurship, ICT, and Marketing.
“The Foundation seeks to nurture the entrepreneurial attitude in our youth, improve upon poor academic performances, and help reduce the number of teenage pregnancies and school dropouts, in the long term”.
The first of the mentorship train stopped at the Tamale Girls International School and saw the three beauty queens admonishing students to live up to expectation in the society or wherever they find themselves.
The students expressed their appreciation to the queens for taking time off their working schedule of the region, to interact with them. The school authority was also thankful for the foundation choosing the school as one of their numerous destinations of the programme.
