nam4Under the auspices of NAM Mission, the Chief Executive Officer of Menzgold and Zylofon Group of Companies, Nana Appiah Mensah, has donated One Million Ghana Cedis as seed money for the setting up of the ‘Sheikh Nuhu Osmanu Sharubutu Educational Fund’ to support the education of bright but needy Muslims in Ghana. The ‘Sheikh Nuhu Sharubutu Educational Fund, which is an initiative of NAM Mission, calculated to boost education among needy Muslims in the country, was announced on when the Chief Imam paid a working visit to the offices of the Mission. The ground breaking initiative was revealed by Mr. Nana Appiah Mensah when the Chief Imam paid a courtesy call on the business magnate to thank him for the massive support he gave various needy Muslims communities during the Holy Month of Ramadan. Accompanied by some members of the leadership of Muslims in Ghana including Chief Abdul Kaadir Taahiru – the leader of the Council of Muslim Chiefs – the Chief Imam was visiting the business mogul to express gratitude over Mr. Mensah’s philanthropic gesture towards destitute Muslims during the Ramadan. Citing the time he has spent living among Muslims in the country, Mr. Mensah revealed that the lack of financial support hampered the progress of several needy but intelligent Muslims he grew up with. He said as part of his support to Muslims in Ghana to celebrate the Eidul-Fitr, he is setting up of the Sheikh Nuhu Osman Sharubutu Educational Fund which will have a lasting impact on the needy to be fully managed by the Chief Imam. Mr. Mensah said, with support of this nature under the auspices of the Chief Imam, several needy Muslims can grow to help in the development not only for their families but also of the country. “I grew up in Muslim neighborhoods like Sukula and Kasoa and to see that some of my Muslim friends could not go far with their education because of financial problems we thought an initiative like this could be our small support to help some of our needy brothers in the Muslim and Zongo communities,” said Nana Appiah Mensah “I have no doubt in my mind that a lot of these young, intelligent but needy Muslims will not only help to uplift their families but will also contribute to the development of Ghana in future. “We all know the role the His Eminence the National Chief Imam has played in Ghana over the years in fostering peace and unity and with an initiative like this in education, I am sure is a step in the right direction.   “I want to thank the National Chief Imam and his Council of Muslim Chiefs for the prayers for the country over the years and during the recent Holy Month of Ramadan for praying for peace in the Ghana.” The National Chief Imam praised Nana Appiah Mensah for his good works in the country insisting that Allah will surely reward him. “Allah has said in the Holy Quran that the recompense for people who do good in society is good returns so I am in no doubt that Allah will reward him for the attention he pays to the needy,” the Chief Imam said. “We know what Mr. Nana Appiah Mensah has been doing for humanity and an initiative like this can also enhance his standing among the people favoured by Allah. NAM Mission is a charity organization in Ghana that is geared towards the provision of aid to the under-privileged and needy in society as well the development of deprived communities across the country. It also aims at setting up business models across the country in order to create jobs – as part of its resolve to improve the economic growth of the country.        ]]>

Call for entries: Lifebuoy Opens Applications for handwashing ‘Chief Education Officers’

Published

on

Lifebuoy GHD CEO Globle KV002

Unilever’s Lifebuoy, the world’s number one hygiene soap brand, has launched a creative competition that will see two (2) Chief Education Officers aged between 6-12years appointed to raise awareness on the importance of handwashing among school children.

Leveraging the power of peer-to-peer learning, the ‘CEOs’ will be selected from public and private schools in Ghana to help create impact by teaching other children about handwashing and personal hygiene in a series of fun and exciting activities.

The campaign dubbed ‘Lifebuoy H for handwashing CEOs’ is part of Lifebuoy’s activities to mark Global Handwashing Day which occurs every year on the 15th of October.

 Global handwashing day is an international handwashing campaign dedicated to motivating and mobilizing people worldwide to improve their handwashing habits as a strategy for disease prevention.

In 2020, Lifebuoy launched the H for Handwashing campaign to transform the letter H into a symbol for handwashing and to integrate hygiene awareness into the school curriculum. In 2021, Lifebuoy launched its first ever children’s book- an “H for Handwashing” alphabet book – in which children can explore the Alphabet with Azzy the horse. The book is intended to support school curricula all over the world, whenever and wherever children are taught the ABCs.

This year, Lifebuoy is going a step further by passing on the baton to the next generation who will teach their peers about handwashing, as studies have shown that children are more likely to change their behaviour when influenced by their peers.

Lifebuoy is encouraging Children from public and private schools in Ghana between the ages of 6-12years to take up this unique and exciting challenge.

Parents, Guardians and Teachers are also urged to encourage their children and pupils to participate in the competition by following these guidelines:

  • Share a 30- 45 seconds video of your child reciting their campaign manifesto by explaining what hygiene means to them and how they will promote better hygiene in their schools.
  • All entries must include the #GHD2022 #LifebuoyCEOgh #LifebuoyGHD22 #HforHandwashing hashtag and be submitted on Facebook and Instagram only via the brand’s pages @LifebuoyGhana.
  • Entries are open until the 10th of October, 2022.

The two selected CEOs will get the chance to become part of Lifebuoy’s award-winning ‘H for Handwashing’ movement and receive a certificate from the Unilever Ghana Leadership Team for their participation and commitment to the cause.  As part of celebrations to mark Global Handwashing Day, they will also visit the Unilever headquarters and factories to teach employees the importance of handwashing

The ‘CEOs’ will commit a minimum of ten hours a year to help spread the message of handwashing with soap to other children, at home and in schools. To enable them perform their roles, they will be trained in the use of Lifebuoy’s decade-old and well-proven  behaviour change material which will equip them to take the message forward.

Customers registering their SIM cards at Temporary Registration point at Goaso in Ahafo Region

With only three days to the  September 30, 2022 deadline for SIM registration, MTN is urging its customers to have their SIM cards fully registered to avoid being disconnected.

All customers with voice and data SIM in phones and devices are mandated to register with the Ghana card before the deadline. All SIM cards that are not fully registered at the end of 30th September 2022 will be disconnected from using all services on the network.

Customers who are yet to register should start the process by dialing *404# or use the registration web portal https://simregistrationportal.mtn.com.gh to link their SIM to the Ghana card. Customers who have linked their SIM cards to the Ghana card can complete their registration by either visiting the nearest service centre/agent for the biometric capture or download the SIM Registration Self Service app on google play to complete the registration.

To ensure all customers are fully registered before the 30th of September 2022 deadline, all MTN field staff have been deployed to different locations to check registration status and register customers who have not yet registered their SIM cards.

The Ministry of Communications and Digitalization announced the mandatory re-registration of all SIM cards in Ghana last year. The registration exercise which started in October 2021 is scheduled to end on September 30, 2022.
