As CEO of Merck Foundation and as an African woman, I am pleased to work in partnership with H.E. REBECCA AKUFO-ADDO, The First Lady of Ghana and her foundation, The Rebecca Foundation, and UNFPA to deliberately mentor adolescent girls through the BECAUSE I WANT TO BE television show as part of “Educating Linda” program. This program aims to enable girls to stay in school until they complete Senior High School and to enable the positive transformation of society.
The TV show will start airing on GTV from the third Saturday of September 2020 onwards. We will share all episodes with you.
Stay tuned .....
