Mandela at 95

As an organisation that always seeks to champion the course of African development in all that we do, we count ourselves blessed for the continent and environment in which we operate, that is Africa. This is why we live and work with the satisfying and refreshing conviction that Africa is not only blessed with natural resources and brilliant individuals but is also blessed with great leaders whose presence and impact on the continent is worth emulating by all. To us, leadership plays such an indispensable role in the development of any people.

It is so sensitive a phenomenon which when not handled well, can either raise or ruin the standards and progress of any group of people. This informed our visit to the Dzorwulu Special School in Accra, during the ninety-fifth (95th) birthday celebration of Nelson Rolihlahla (Madiba) Mandela, the emperor of peace.

To us, Nelson Rolihlahla (Madiba) Mandela is more than just a distinguished African leader but an everlasting symbol of humility, peace, selflessness and lover of humanity, which make him a figure worth emulating by the youth and posterity at large. This legacy that Mandela has left for Africa enjoins us to identify ourselves with him hence the peculiar interest in the celebration of his birthday.

Our invited guests included Rev. Father Andrews Campbell, a selfless Irish Priest of Christ the King Parish, representatives from the office of the National Chief Imam, His Eminence Sheikh Dr. Osman Nuhu Sharubutu, Business Executives and various heads of institutions who share in the exploits of Mandela and what the  Star of the World stands for. All these individuals came to support the programme for the love they have for the eminent son of Africa. The uniqueness of the programme was even heightened when it all succeeded in teaching the youth about Mandela and putting smiles on their faces.
