NGO organises leadership training for children
A charitable non-governmental organisation based in Accra has organised a leadership training programme for schoolchildren in James Town as part of activities to mark its third anniversary.
No Limit Charity Organisation (NLCO) support the education of the vulnerable in society, especially children in James Town, to become university heroes.
The programme, which was sponsored by Good Schools for Africa Foundation, saw experts in leadership training from Korea, who educated the children on how to apply for scholarships to Korean universities.
The children were exposed to leadership skills in order to be confident and good communicators to help them build their careers in future.
Ms Esenam Garglo, the founder of the organisation, said the training did not only focus on academic excellence, but also more importantly, strategies for the students to have the foresight and determination to be agents of social change, and stimulate their analytical and creative knowledge to be problem solvers.
She urged parents to inculcate in their children positive leadership traits such as respect, selflessness and independence, in order to make them responsible people.
She noted that NLCO, which sometimes gets support from the National Disaster Management and Organisation (NADMO) to feed vulnerable children in James Town and beyond, also organised behaviour change programmes for the youth to help them to become good leaders in future.
Mr Andrew Newton, the founder of Good Schools for Africa, urged the students to be disciplined and focus on their studies and aim high to achieve their future aspirations.
He asked them to exhibit true humility by learning from others, be passionate, strive for excellence and be curious to learn new developments since learning was the foundation of their future. —GNA
