The programme was an initiative of the Universal Child Care Foundation and its partners, Mr. Edem Agbana (The Edem Agbana Foundation), Group Atlantic Business Africa (GABA) and the Gabriel King International.

Charles Sena Adika.

Objective

Ms. Quashie, in an address to the students, said the main objective of the programme was to lay the right career foundation for students as they prepare to enter the various tertiary institutions and life in general.

She added that ‘’ it is the long-term plan of the facilitators of the programme to extend this event to other students in all regions of the country and we are appealing to the major stakeholders in the education sector to come on board’’.

The headmasters of the four schools were delighted at the programme and requested that it be held annually, as well as it been extended to other SHSs as promised by the facilitators.
