The Chairman, the Board and Management of Obaapa Development Foundation, invited guests, teenage mothers, ladies and gentlemen, good morning to you all and a Happy New Year.
I am Alice Mamaga Akosua Amokao, the Programs Coordinator of VFL-GHANA and I bring you greetings from my Executive Director, Hon. Abla Dzifa Gomashie.
VFL-GHANA (Values For Life) is a non-governmental organization that provides various social systems to help empower and improve lives of Children, Youth and Women in Ghana through Creative and Performing Arts, Culture and Traditional Heritage, Tourism and Digital Innovations. At VFL, we see the crucial need for a reawakening and restoration of African common cultural experiences and true identity to help foster sustainable development and build a generation of great leaders.
We are a partner organization to the Obaapa Foundation and we are delighted to be supporting the “Teenage Mothers Back To School Project”. At TFL, we believe Education for all is an important objective for Ghana as outlined in the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal Number 4, which is to provide quality education for all groups of individuals in the society.
We believe in the teenage mothers in our various communities and we are privileged to help in building a great future for them through education. This project has brought about incredible social impact stories since the inception and we hope to continue to improve lives of teenage mothers in Ghana.
On behalf of Hon. Abla Dzifa Gomashie and the VFL team, we say Ayekoo to Nanahemaa Adjoa Awindor and the entire management of Obaapa Foundation. We pledge to always give a helping hand to all your projects. You can count on our full support should you wish to bring this project to the Volta Region. We will provide all the support within our means to ensure that the Teenage Mother Back to School Project become a National Project. We also hope to work with the Obaapa Foundation to engage teenagers on sexual education and reproductive health issues. This we believe will help in reducing the incidence of teenagers getting pregnant. Information provides knowledge and with knowledge comes the ability to be discerning in the choices one makes in life.
Ghana and Africa will continue to be a better place for this generation and the next to come because we know all these teenage mothers who are going through the project will be equipped to provide for themselves and their babies.
On the historic and memorably occassion of the official launch of the foundation, we at VFL say Congratulations.
Long Live Obaapa Foundation, Long Live “Teenage Mothers Back To School Project”.
