Our manifesto: This is what YEN.com.gh believes in
The winner of TV3 Ghana’s Most Beautiful (GMB) 2020, Naa Dedei Botchwey, from Greater Accra, is set to launch her foundation, NDB foundation, on February 26, 2021.
This is to help her carry out her long-time passion of championing inclusive education in Ghana by providing opportunities, resources, and support to people who are not able to get access to good quality education because of the lack of these things.
In an exclusive interview with YEN.com.gh, Naa Dedei revealed that throughout her university education, she has had a passion to promote inclusive education.
Even before the official start of her foundation, Naa has started a mentorship programmed dubbed: “Ask Naa”, by which she seeks to mentor a lot of school children.
While in school, she was volunteering to work with organisations that had the mandate.
Naa Dedei mentioned the Databank Foundation, and Hold A Hand Foundation, that saw her visiting a lot of schools to offer varied help.
Naa is a mentor to a lot of students, both males, and females.
In one of the schools she visited, the 2020 GMB winner had to sacrifice her time to take the JHS 3 students on a revision exercise because BECE was just a few days away.
She also took them through entrepreneurship, and career development talks, in order to enlighten the students.
The beautiful queen also made time to sideline the females for a special talk about how to take care of themselves.
She has also helped some students, both males, and females, to gain admission into the university.
Naa also volunteered with EduPro Multimedia while in her first year at the university.
She took part in some educational activities including organising a spelling bee competition for schools around Nungua, Lashibie, Tema, and others.
“I did all these because I already have an interest in education so when I got the opportunity to go to Ghana’s Most Beautiful, I said that even if I do not win, I need the platform to promote this,” Naa said passionately.
She hopes to expand the focus of the organisation in the future if need be.
She is in talks with Regional Maritime University, through the office of the Ga Mantse, Nii Takie Teiko Tsuru II to also offer some scholarships to Ga girls to promote girl-child education.
As part of her Ask Naa tour, she visited Apollonia in Accra and saw that the town did not have a library.
She took the initiative to speak with the GaDangme Muslim Council, and the traditional leaders and they agreed to partner with her to put up a library in the community.
She will also include children suffering from Dyslexia in a programme to help them in school.
The beauty queen looks forward to financial and logistical support from well-meaning Ghanaians.
