Ghana: Nestle, Ministry of Education honor 46 students

Nestle Ghana Limited, in partnership with the Ministry of Education, has reaffirmed its dedication to academic excellence by recognizing 46 students who achieved outstanding results in the 2023 Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE).

The students, including those with visual and hearing impairments, were chosen from both public and private schools nationwide.

For their award package, each student received a laptop, a plaque, Nestlé souvenirs and one year supply of Nestlé products as well as a signed certificate by the President of the Republic of Ghana.

The students also engaged in exciting activities prior to the official awards event. The activities included a tour of the Nestlé factory in Tema, a visit to the Jubilee House, the Ministry of Education, the Kwame Nkrumah Memorial Park, and an air-experience at the Air Force Base in Burma Camp.

President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo congratulated the award recipients.

In his address, he emphasized that education is not merely a privilege but a fundamental right. He urged everyone to contemplate the vital role of education, as the success of youth hinges on a robust educational base.

The awards ceremony, hosted at the Accra International Conference Centre, was graced by Ministers of State, members of the Diplomatic Corps, Traditional Leaders, Heads of Departments and Agencies, parents of awardees, teachers, and other students.

Speaking at the awards ceremony, Georgios Badaro, Managing Director of Nestlé Ghana Ltd. reiterated his firm belief that recognising and celebrating achievements is not only a way to honour individuals but also a way to inspire others to reach higher heights.

Speaking on the theme “Our Democracy, Our Pride,” Mr. Badaro emphasised the importance of protecting the democracy of the country, so that the future leaders like the award winners will be able to contribute to shaping the future of Ghana.”

Since its establishment in 1993, the President’s Independence Day Awards have consistently recognized academic excellence. Today, the awards ceremony has evolved into an essential component of Ghana’s Independence Day Celebration.
