Get Inspired at P&L Conference 2015
Amidst the tussle of words, weak macroeconomic fundamentals and gloomy growth outlook, there are Ghanaian companies that have done marvelously well in both for-profit and nonprofit space. As part of Rural Height Foundation’s issue advocacy efforts, this year’s Patriots and Leaders Conference would focus on telling this inspiring story two Ghanaian companies that have done remarkably well; mPedigree and Wonda World Estates. mPedigree Network is a Ghanaian brand, which to all intents and purposes, can be said to have achieved the kind of global relevance and status only rivalled in our history by the musical band Osibisa. The company has in its client portfolio brands such as; AstraZeneca, Sanofi, Neimeth, Tropical Cables and Conductors Limited and many more. The company operates in more than five geographical markets including Nigeria, Kenya and India. With this impressive constellation of global pharmaceutical giants as clients, mPedigree has yet found new markets within Ghana’s textile manufacturing sector to leverage its anti-product counterfeiting solutions, GoldKeys.
Nana Kwame Bediako is an inspiration to many Ghanaians both young and old. He is the C.E.O. of Wonda World Estates – one of the leading Real Estate Development Companies in Ghana, and the President of Petronia City Development – A 2000 acre master planned city development in the Western Region of Ghana. He has been a successful developer in the luxury real estate space in Ghana for over 15 years, and has developed over a 150 units with his team at Wonda World Estates. There is no question that these Patriots and Leaders of their field would inspire and challenge conference participants during this year’s P&L Conference on December 19th 2015 at the Accra International Conference Centre.
The object of this conference is to convene a meeting of great minds where inspiration would provoke deliberate action leading to a popular desire by conference participants to incorporate social impact enterprises and entrepreneurial ventures. As a Foundation, we believe this would promote the spirit of self-reliance and create jobs in the process. All proceeds from the conference would go to fund the Foundation’s intervention program in Gomoa Pinanko and Ampia-Ejumako in the Central Region.
Rural Heights Foundation is non-profit initiative founded to intervene in the rural areas (savannah and coastal) within three thematic areas; well-being, education and micro enterprise. The Foundation in September, concluded a baseline survey and stakeholder consultation in three villages in the Central Region; Gomoa Pinanko, Brofoyedu and Ampia-Ejumako as a precursor to its intervention. The Foundation is helping to provide technical and grant support to some selected women in Pinanko and Ampia-Ejumako (25 for each locality) to enable them start micro enterprises in petty trading, agriculture and other value chains.
The mission of Rural Heights Foundation is to help promote financial security in rural areas through value chain interventions. We do this by working with Community-based Organisations (CBOs) and local women groups. We believe this would help address gender disparities and contribute to a reversal of rural-urban population drift. We also engage in policy advocacy to support our intervention activities. Our broader focus is to help shape public policy in a manner that supports the agenda of shared growth through rural development.
