Ghanaian Entrepreneur Sees Opportunity In Student Online Mentoring And Guidance

When Afia Bobia Amanfo thinks about Ghana, she sees a country ripe for harvesting, full of opportunities for its young population but lacking many basic necessities crucial for the success of young people. “This might not be an advantage for every business but it is a great opportunity for us as a social enterprise to make a difference in the lives of these young ones and help redefine the future of Ghana,” Amanfo told AFKInsider.
