My name is Joseph Opoku, a Ghanaian student at the African Leadership Academy and founder of Passionate for Change- an NGO dedicated to empowering young people in Ghana using entrepreneurship education. I have been selected to attend RELEAD Conference in Bangalore, India. This event is powered by The Blue Ribbon Movement. Relead is a week-long international program for high-potential young leaders under 35 who seek to understand and impact the world by building skills and perspectives to lead into the future. This event will bring together the latest and most relevant training and individuals to build this capacity in young people. Through a combination of speakers, workshops, simulations, reflection, art and theatre, discussions and on-field projects, participants will re-examine what leadership means to them and develop their own philosophy and way of leading. It will also share the unique Indian approach of servant leadership, while drawing from domains like ontology, psychology and management. I will be trained in the following areas:
Day 1: Corporate and Academia
Day 2: Government and Civil Society
Day3: Entrepreneurship and Technology
Day4: Spirituality and Ecology/Sustainability
Day 5: Arts and Media
Day 6: Self and Reflection
I have received a 75% scholarship from The Blue Ribbon Movement which put current conference fee at $290. I will need $350 to attend this event. This will help pay remaining conference and visa fee. This event is very important to me and I am humbly requesting for your support.
