Speaking at the event, the brainchild of the initiative and MD of Avance Media, Prince Akpah stated that the need for the ‘Be A Girl’ project was borne out of the unavailability of mentorship & motivational programs in rural settings of Ghana. And that is the essential aim of the project.

He was quick to add that, albeit the awards come in forms of papers (certificates), their monumental values are far greater than money or any other material gift. It is something that will be imprinted in the recipients’ lives forever and that they should serve as a yardstick for others to aspire towards.
