On Saturday, November 25, 2017, I was invited to attend a mass at Our Lady of Apostles Senior High School (“OLA”), a 1,500-student girls school in Ho, Volta Region, Ghana where we are deploying our CLODS System at regional hospitals.
During the mass, I was given the opportunity by the priest to address the students. In my remarks, I explained to the girls that we have come to their Volta Region to improve the delivery of healthcare thereby generating measurable social impact. After my brief comments, I was asked to return to the school in January to address the student body and deliver my mantra on Choosing a Mission in Life, the title of my recent TEDx talk.
It was obvious from my visit to OLA that the students are very passionate about not only their participation in religious ceremonies but also their studies to obtain meaningful skill sets for future productive lives.
I truly am looking forward to returning to OLA in January to interact with these highly motivated and engaging young women who will most assuredly be major contributors to the future of their country.
