On the 27th and 29th April, 2021 Management of the Regional Maritime University (RMU), Accra, met with Ghana Most Beautiful, 2020, Miss Naa Dede Botchwey to discuss sponsorship and training of twenty (20) girls from the Ga District to pursue a Marine Engine Mechanic Programme.
The sponsorship and training of these girls is part of the Inclusive Education Project of the beauty queen that aims to ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and learning opportunities for all, thus contributing to the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goal Four (SDG 4), in support of Ghana’s effort towards accessible education to all. The sponsorship of the twenty (20) girls would be facilitated by the Naa Dede Botchwey (NDB) Foundation, RMU and the Ga Mantse Girl Child Educational Foundation.
It is expected that the Marine Engine Mechanic Programme would equip the participants with broad technical and general mechanical skills in engine room operation and maintenance as well as operations in the Oil and Gas and Land-based Industries.
The deliberations also focused on putting the necessary logistical requirements in place and setting the stage for the commencement of the training in June, 2021.
Present at the working meetings were Miss Naa Dede Botchwey, Ghana Most Beautiful, 2020 and Justice Sarkordie Mensah (Rtd.), Chief of Staff of the Ga State on the one hand, and the RMU Team, on the other hand, comprising Professor Elvis Nyarko, Vice Chancellor; Madam Vania Thomas, Director of Finance; Mr. Jones Addai-Marfo, Academic Registrar, Dr. Isaac Animah, Head of Department, Engineering and Allied Sciences; Dr. Stephen Dehlor, Deputy Registrar, Academic; Mr. Burphy Duncan, Co-ordinator of Students Affairs and Mrs. Evelyn Quartey, Marketing Officer.
