The Dream Weavers: Meet Hasia Ahmed of PShea Butter Fame

Category : Global Citizenship

The story of how Hasia got involved with Rural Heights Foundation is an interesting one. While en route from the project field, the Executive Director of Rural Heights Foundation had the good fortune of sharing a seat with Hasia on a public transport bound for Accra. As conversation ensued, it vacillated from occupational engagement to public policy to health care delivery, and finally settled on volunteering. The rest is history.

With her passion and unique perspectives, Hasia brings to Rural Heights Foundation a very important diversity. Due to the fact the all Rural Heights Foundation staff and associates have Christian religious backgrounds, Hasia’s Muslim faith helps to reinforce our message that social change is and must always be, a concerted effort of like-minded persons in pursuit of social justice regardless of religion, ethnicity or class.

Above all, what we are most excited about, is Hasia’s flare for entrepreneurship. Trained as a clinical laboratory technician, Hasia has currently joined the shining constellation of young stars, who are committed to being the change that Ghana needs. Just recently, Hasia resigned from her regular job to open a clinical laboratory at Ejumako in the Central Region in response to a market gap within the local health supply chain and to ultimately serve the health needs of the population within that catchment area.

She is also the founder of a start-up enterprise in the body cosmetics space called The Paradise, with an exclusive product brand – PShea Butter. PShea Butter is a 100% organic shea butter with value propositions of addressing hair growth challenges, skin moisture, and hair breakage. Over time, the product has gained awareness among natural hair salon owners and operators due to its originality, organicity and affordability.

With recent market shift in female taste for natural hair, PShea Butter is positioned to explore that niche in order to grow the business’ balance sheet.

Hasia has become a regular volunteer with Rural Heights Foundation especially on our Gomoa Education Projects (GEP). Her areas of interest are career counselling, personal grooming and entrepreneurship. Her contribution to mentorship and coaching of girls in Apam Senior High School has been immense.

Rural Heights Foundation is proud to be associated with Hasia Ahmed. We wish her well on her entrepreneurial journey.

‘Future Leaders Dialogue’ at Darumpong Catholic Primary

Gomoa West, one of the 19 districts in the Central Region of Ghana has seen some of the worst educational performance at the Basic and Junior High level. According to an annual report (District League Table) by UNICEF and Centre for Democratic Development, the district placed last, among 216 districts nationwide on a weighted performance index that aggregate data from various sectors; health, education, sanitation, etc. One nonprofit organisation, Rural Heights Foundation, has decided to do something about. By engaging the teaching staff, school by school, essential information for policy discussions are unearthed and interventions are also shaped by it. Our projects also incorporate coaching sessions and experiential learning interactions with Kindergarten children. This is one such project.

Darumpong Catholic Primary School Project 20.05.16

 

In an interactive forum dubbed “The Future leaders Dialogue Series” with the teaching staff of Gomoa Darumpong, the latter raised critical issues of policy and administrative importance that may be contributing to the poor B.E.C.E performance in districts such as Gomoa West. Armed with basic info on what may be responsible for poor performance, the stated goals of The Future leaders Dialogue with the teachers of Darumpong Catholic Primary was to explore in depth, root causes. Consensus seemed to have crystallized around the Ghana Education Service’s exoglossic policy that has recently attempted to find a balance by introducing the 70:30 language policy. 70% of instruction must be carried through the medium of English as first language while 30% is done through local vernacular. Feedback from some teaching staff suggests that more emphasis needs to be put on the local vernacular as main medium, effectively transforming the policy to be endoglossic.
