The Day, marked on a chosen day in October every year, was used to educate and inspire young people and to help them appreciate and understand their self-worth and goals in life in a dignified way.

It was also to help youth and adults to become their best self and to assistance others in a meaningful way.

The Day is the brainchild of three friends, concerned global citizens who met as Young Global Leaders at the World Economic Forum.

About 312 students, 30 teaching and non-teaching staffs were engaged in a day-long event led by Madam Rosalin Abigail Kyere-Nartey, a Representative of Globe Shapers to guide the students on the importance of dignity.

She said through various activities including debate, essay writing and poetry performances by students, they were able to define dignity for themselves and share their stories on how they live or plan to live a dignified life.

Ms Elizabeth Patterson, the Executive Director, Girls Education Initiative of Ghana, inspired the students to live dignified life even when faced with challenges.

She also urged them to strive to reach and realize their potential without compromising their morals and values.

Prizes, together with certificates were given students, who participated in the essay and poetry competitions with each school’s library presented with 75 books from the Ankoma Foundation to encourage reading amongst the youth.
