200 Ghanaians depart Ghana today to begin their studies on a scholarship from the Ghana National Petroleum Corporation (GNPC) Foundation led by Dominic Kwesi Eduah (PhD). Their destination is the Republic of Cuba. Their study will help them to be trained as medical doctors/Health professionals before they return to serve in different capacities in the Ghanaian health sector.
“The future of this nation belongs to the youth and the solid foundation we lay as leaders of today to help them develop their intellectual capacity and abilities as leaders of tomorrow is what will make or unmake the Ghana of tomorrow.”
