Stanford Seed Transformation Network launches updated business directory to support economic growth
The Stanford Seed Transformation Network Ghana has launched its updated Business Directory to provide individuals and businesses with access to an extensive catalog of member companies spread across 16 sectors of the economy.
In her remarks on the directory at the launch, Linda Yaa Ampah, President of the Stanford Seed Transformation Network, Ghana and Founder of Cadling Fashions and KAD Manufacturing Ltd, said the directory will allow users to access member company profiles and service catalog all in one place.
“We recognize the importance of making information easily accessible to members and the Ghanaian business community without any limitations. The directory allows users to access the contact details of Network members,” she added.
STN Ghana will constantly update the directory with new information as new members are inducted into the network.
As part of the Network’s community impact initiative, three students were also awarded full scholarships at the event as part of the Network’s scholarship fund to pursue postgraduate studies at the University of Ghana , the University of Professional Studies and the Technical University of Ho.
Beneficiaries will have their tuition fees, accommodation costs and other related costs fully covered by the Network until the end of their studies.
The scholarship program was launched last year to help students in need of assistance to pursue higher education. It will be extended to other universities in Ghana over the next few years.
Reverend Sammy Adjepong, Chairman of the Network’s scholarship committee, was assisted by Abdourahamane Diallo, UNESCO representative in Ghana to present the scholarship to the beneficiaries. Revered Adjepong, reaffirmed the Network’s commitment to ensuring inclusive and equitable quality education and promoting lifelong learning opportunities in line with UN Sustainable Development Goal 4.
He therefore urged the recipients to take advantage of the opportunities presented and focus on their studies to reach their full potential.
“Through this scholarship, I will have a sound mind to study a Bachelor of Arts in Human Resources and Psychology at the University of Ghana to fulfill my dream of becoming one of the top Human Resource professionals in Ghana. I feel privileged because I come from a home that could not have afforded me this opportunity,” Ms. Ologo said.
“It is a great opportunity to become a good and useful citizen in the future,” she added, echoing the sentiments of the other winners.
The event was used to highlight the positive impact member companies are having in their communities.
