We actively seek to equip girls with leadership skills to make a broader impact on the wider school body and community by providing a platform that enables the girls to speak and act on issues that affect them and those around them. Activities that we engage in to achieve this objective include:
Our scholarship beneficiaries partake in guest lectures or training seminars on areas such as woman’s rights, sex education, and career guidance offered by visiting alumni and other resource persons. This is supported by student-led debates to encourage critical thinking about the relevance and application of these issues.
Scholarship beneficiaries are also mandated to identify and implement a change project. This should include wider participation from other students and thus can be championed by an existing club or group in the school. The change project should address a critical need for the school or surrounding community.
The Phyllis Twum-Barima
vocational training initiative
The Phyllis Twum-Barima vocational training initiative provides support to bridge the gap between academically inclined students and students whose brilliance is embedded in practical vocations and the creative arts.
Phyllis was educated in her village town of Kyebi in the Eastern Region. As a conscientious student who went on to become a devoted teacher, her intuition for identifying hidden talent led her to nurture less academically endowed students to achieve their highest potential. Her legacy of compassion for the less privileged, remains the impetus for the initiative under the Alice Dede Bright and Needy Foundation (ADBNMF).
We seek to promote our flagship program, the Girls’ Empowerment Model. Mentorship and peer learning are the two pillars of the Empowerment Model.
