Spring-UP Global Network (SUGN) is a youth-led NGO renovating and building school libraries and nurturing the reading and writing skills of children through reading and writing clubs. We also provide mentorship and career guidance to children across Ghana.
SUGN achieves its objectives through its flagship programs such as the iRead iLead Campaign, Back to School Drive and Mentor Me. “Mentor Me” is a unique career guidance and mentorship programme where SUGN volunteers engage and mentor students in primary and secondary schools across the country.
As part of its “Mentor Me ” and ahead of this year’s Basic Education Certificate Examinations (BECE), SUGN organized a STEM mentorship and donation of exam supplies to BECE candidates at the Dichemso M/A JHS ‘A’ in Kumasi.
The program which was SUGN’s second mentorship event in the school, was held on Thursday October 6 and aimed at introducing the BECE candidates to Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics career opportunities. Speaking to the BECE candidates, the SUGN volunteers also highlighted the importance of skill training while waiting for their BECE results.
To support the candidates in their exam preparations, volunteers from Spring-UP Global Network, Godwin Adablah, Erica Amoasiwa Aggrey and Benedict Kofi Amofah also presented mathematical sets, pens, pencils, erasers and sharpeners to the 30 JHS 3 candidates of the Dichemso M/A JHS ‘A’.
Headteacher of the school, Mr. Douglas Adu-Nyantakyi, JHS teacher, Science & Guidance and Counselling teacher, Fauziya Issah and Stella Tweneboah Koduah, commended the SUGN team and expressed his fulfillment with the working relationship with the youth-led NGO.
On Monday October 17, a total of 552,276 candidates from 18,501 schools will sit for this year’s Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) across 2,023 centres in the country. Successful candidates will transition to the various second cycle institutions across the country.
