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.

Amanfo co-founded Students Hub Ghana, an online social enterprise that provides a platform for mentoring young Ghanaians in education, career, technology, and entrepreneurship. The platform features education resources and information on available scholarships with outreach to rural children. Along with youth leader Nana Ofosu Boakye, Amanfo launched Students Hub Ghana in March 2017. It already has more than 3,000 followers.

He encouraged me to pursue this idea and brought his expertise so organically we became partners. We have a very honest and open relationship, which helps us to avoid conflict and challenges.” Once the line moved into the prototype stage, the siblings knew their cousin Anita Atuobi was a no-brainer to develop the designs.
