To mark the 2021 International Girl-Child Day, KGL Foundation teamed up with Achievers Ghana, one of its grassroots partners, in engaging some girls in the Nima community and its environs.
Speaking at the event, the CEO of the KGL Foundation, Mr Elliot Dadey said, ‘over 1.1 billion girls are poised to take on the future. Every day, girls are breaking boundaries and barriers, tackling issues like child marriage, education inequality, violence, climate justice, and inequitable access to healthcare. Girls are proving they are unstoppable.
With this year’s theme, ‘Digital generation’. Our generation’, the CEO in his opening remarks, held the position that girls know their digital realities and the solutions they need to excel on their diverse pathways as technologists for freedom of expression, joy, and boundless potential.
He went on further to push for extensive intensification of the diversity of these tech pioneers while simultaneously broadening the pathways so that every girl, this generation of girls – regardless of race, gender, language, ability, economic status and geographic origin – lives their full potential.
The KGL Foundation is a corporate social responsibility initiative set up on behalf of the KGL Group. The Foundation focuses on youth empowerment, arts & culture and health & sports. Their approach is to collaborate, innovate and empower all local grassroots organisers working in these areas, ensuring they have the resources to improve and safeguard their own societies.
