How My Life Changed
In the year 2007, I was a security guard stationed at Fidelity Bank, where I managed the reception and common areas on the Managing Director‘s floor.
One day, the MD (in the picture) (Mr Edward Effah -CEO) was passing by and stopped to ask the reason why I am at a security post instead of being in school. I was very young and naive then.
To my utmost amazement, the bank offered me a job as a Messenger by then.
*While working, I used my time judiciously, studied and rewrote my SSCE again and for the fourth time I have passed.
*With an inspiration from environment in which I work, I applied to university as a matured student. With grit and hardwork, I passed with distinction and gained admission to Level 200. Though the challenge wasn’t easy, I successfully graduated.
Inspired by my life story, I Formed an NGO, Give Me Hope Foundation, that brought together people of the same heart and have impacted thousands of lives.
* Provided scholarships to 70 children in school.
* Got the opportunity to share my life story and the impact the foundation is making to the shareholders and Board of Directors of the bank.
* Just a helping hand offered to me, has today changed thousands of lives.
Received numerous awards and recognized by international Organizations for the change I lead.
I am a young banker who had braved the storm in my life to found Give Me Hope Foundation. Strong passion for sustainable development. You can’t take away my study passion for education, especially for the defenseless streets and neglected children.
My staunch passion to help millions of underprivileged children who are denied of quality education was the motivation for the NGO that brought together great people of the same heart and has focused on eradication of poverty through: Early education for the streets and slums, Mentorships, Health, clothes, food, Skills training.
