Those Who Inspire Ghana – TWI Inspiring Days
Those Who Inspire Ghana is the 10th book that we launched beginning of February in Ghana. For the last month, we have organised Inspiring Days (ID) between the Ghanaian youth and Mentors (Inspiring People – IP).
At Those Who Inspire, we believe we need to transmit experiences, knowledge, wisdom and real life stories to the youth via the Inspiring Days for them to:
- RELEASE their full potential
- PURSUE their dreams and passions
- CONTRIBUTE more to their country & people
- LEARN from their fellow citizens
- FIND MENTORS from their own country
- REALISE they can be anything they want to be
- COME TO SEE that everything is possible
- BE PROUD of their achievements and country
- NOT BE AFRAID to fail
On the 12th February, we organised one ID at UPSA where IP/mentors Renée Q. Boateng, Karen Akiwumi-Tanoh, David Osei Amankwah Jnr and Stephanie Ode Wilson came and exchanged face to face with students. TWI Ghana IP animated round tables with those students during 1 hour. UPSA students then shared their experience and learnings from those sessions, followed by a Q&A.
We donated free of charge books to students thanks to Those Who Inspire Movement’s Partners in Ghana.
Thanks to the collaboration with UPSA teachers, the books donated will circulate among all students to make sure all of them will get to read the portraits, get inspired and find a mentor.
The ID tour continued and on the 19th of February, together with Databank Foundation, we organised another Inspiring Day coinciding with the announcement of their Leadership and Excellence Awards (LEA). Ms Pilar Carrasco, director and co-publisher Those Who Inspire Ghana joined (LEA) together with Ms Pebbles Parkes, Programmes Director at Databank Foundation. Former Kayayoo Teni Agana, one of our IP and mentors, shared with graduates about finding your passion, the importance of having a mentor and building a career.
Each (LEA) awarded received one book of Those Who Inspire Ghana thanks to our partner Databank Foundation.
The ID we organised together with students at the Ghana Institute of Journalism took place on the 3rd of March and more than 100 students attended the Inspiring Day. Among the Inspiring People who joined us that day, Anita Erskine, Samuel Appiah, Adjetey Anang, Elizabeth-Irene Baitie and Teni Agana.
And this is just the beginning of our ID tour in Ghana aiming to inspire the local youth and offer them the opportunity to connect with mentors. Follow us on our social media and check out our press kit here to discover more.
For now, stay home, stay safe and dare to read more and get inspired.
