Elizabeth lives with her single mother who works as a banana seller in the traffic of kasoa. Coming from a vulnerable background, Elizabeth felt that she had the potential to reach greater heights. She was a bundle of talent, but was unsure on how to effectively channelize it. This changed when he got introduced to the Dream Career Connect Program. In Elizabeth own words, she could see a measurable change in her life after being associated with the Career Connect Program to learn fashion design which has been her dream. She said, “Previously, I used to have a carefree attitude to life. I lacked commitment, focus and a sense of responsibility towards my own future. I always believed that I was intelligent, talented and good at studies, but I did not realize the importance of hard work, commitment or discipline in life that one ought to have, to become successful. I also learnt that it is important to take initiatives and come out of one’s comfort zone in order to realize one’s potential.” Life skills sessions at Career Connect played a pivotal role in his transformation. With a beaming smile, he says, “Life skills sessions were an eye opener to me.

Medical screening is a strategy used in a population to identity an unrecognized disease in individuals without signs or symptoms. This can include individuals with pre-symptomatic or unrecognized symptomatic disease. As such, screening tests are somewhat unique in that, they are performed on persons apparently in good health. Screening interventions are designed to identify disease in a community early, thus enabling earlier intervention and management in the hope to reduce mortality and suffering from a disease.
