Maiden Press Release

This Press Release follows from the media briefing (press conference) held at the Ghana International Press Centre on 10 October 2010; under the theme: GROOMING THE YOUTH FOR EXCELLENCE TOWARDS ACCELERATED DEVELOPMENT OF GHANA AND AFRICA, THROUGH ‘TOTAL EDUCATION;’ THE SUREST WAY! The Speakers were: 1. Mr David K Egyir (CEO; Seers Foundation – An NGO committed to grooming humanity for excellence, and raising exceptional doers) 2. Mrs Ellen Hagan (CEO; L’Aine Services – A celebrated Human Resource Development Company) and 3. Mr Raymond Ackah (CEO; Ishmael Yamson & Associates – A renowned firm of Management Consultants)

Are you happy with the way we, as a people, do things (or perhaps do not do things) in Ghana and Africa? Certainly Not! Generally there is a wide ‘execution gap’ in society; many people are either not committed to doing efficiently what they ought to, or that they effectively do what they ought not to. To put things in perspective, let’s ask ourselves:

  1. Why is it that in spite of the numerous graduates produced by the Universities, Polytechnics, Training Colleges, and Technical & Vocational Schools in Ghana and Africa, the countries are still bedeviled with age old developmental problems such as indiscriminate littering, chocked gutters that lead to floods year after year, frequent power outages, lack of constant flow of pipe-borne water, roads that develop pot-holes in no time, driving attitude, and the rest of them?

     

  2. Why is moral decadence, corruption and indiscipline, so prevalent in spite of the numerous preaching programmes and other educational campaigns particularly on radio and television; and though religious groups together form a whopping majority (about 84%) of the population?

 

These are just two of the many questions we could be asking, but the crux of the issue is: Why do these problems persist, and most importantly, what can we do to solve them?

The Root of Our Problems

OUR ‘EDUCATION’ – Formal schooling teaches just about 15 – 22% of what a person needs to be very effective or truly successful in life – even globally; that is ‘Partial Education.’ Prof. Sir, William Arthur Lewis once said, “Education and schooling are not the same thing. What goes on inside the schools are not always education, and the result may well be to reduce productive capacity rather than to increase it.”

Consequent Effect

Majority choose to pursue and live the pleasant life, rather than the meaningful life. This affects career choices so, about 80% of people reluctantly go to work every day. Any wonder why productivity is generally so low? Formal education is very important and indeed necessary; however, formal schooling alone is grossly inadequate!

The Solution

‘TOTAL EDUCATION’ – The surest way! It’s about complementing formal schooling with the 78-85% success and effectiveness factor that formal education largely neglects.

Having modelled a comprehensively and logically structured complementary curriculum based on more than 10 years of intensive Research & Development, Seers Foundation seeks to offer this complementary training to all; and on sponsorship to the youth of Ghana and Africa especially, who will thus go through the training essentially for FREE.* (*Terms and conditions apply)

Concluding Remarks…

We cannot continue to do the same things we have been doing and expect different results. The 78-85% factor happen to be so important to the extent that continuing to ignore them will inhibit our socio-economic development as a people, and on the other hand, implementing them on a wide scale will transform society for the better. We will be raising exceptional achievers; ‘those who would effectively isolate the various developmental problems facing Ghana and Africa at various levels, and work out tangible, comprehensive and therefore effective solutions to them, and see to their conclusive implementation to achieve the expected results.’

Ghana and Africa will never be the same again!

Time for Action

Together, we can make this redemption happen! Indeed, having discovered the remedy, posterity will judge us badly if we refuse to implement it. Please click here to get involved now! Let’s give a far better tomorrow to our children, and our children’s children.

Long live Ghana! Long live Seers Foundation!! Long live Africa!!!
