Girls in Ghana Encouraged to Pursue Higher Education

Mona Gertrude Effah and Martha Annan are young professionals from the Twifu traditional area in Ghana, are working hard to get the young girls in the Twifu-Atti Morkwa District to work hard and pursue higher education.

Both women spoke at the launch of the Obrempong Foundation at Twifu Mampong where they asked the girls in attendance to focus harder on their studying and set anything else aside while aiming for the top of the higher education tower. They encouraged their young listeners to eschew the cultural mindset that an education is only for boys and that men are not as interested in women with careers, opting instead to grab all the educational options they can.

Mona Gertrude Effah is the epitome of everything she is asking of the girls in Ghana to accomplish, as is evident in her position as a lawyer at Kpasa and Associates. Her speaking partner, Martha Annan, is also an excellent example of what an educated woman from the Twifu traditional area can became as she excels in her position as a development consultant and CEO of Egret Consult at Cape Coast.

According to All Africa, Annan said of her education, “It is what you make of it. I am proud to announce that I was a product of ‘TWIPASS’ (Twifu Praso Senior High School).”
