This was made known by Manpreet Singh, the Managing Director of Multi-Pro Private Ltd (MPPL), brand representatives of Indomie in Ghana.

The MD made the commitment when the Scripps (U.S) National Spelling Bee finalist Afua Ansah, together with the organisers of the competition in Ghana, Young Educators Foundation (YEF) paid a courtesy call on the management of MPPL in Tema.

The visit was to show gratitude to Indomie for its sustained support for the competition and also for Miss Ansah to share her success story with the management of the company.

Mr Manpreet, who was full of praise for the 14 year-old Miss Ansah, said her performance significantly marketed Ghana to the world.

He urged the organisers to continue to produce more spellers who can win at the global stage.

He said “supporting young people such as Miss Ansah to achieve their full potential is at the heart of the company just as our product Indomie provides the needed nutrient for children to grow”.

Mr Manpreet said the performance of Miss Ansah and the dedication of the organisers have encouraged the company to remain the main sponsor of the competition.

Mr Manpreet on behalf of the company presented a cheque for GHC 3,000 to Miss Ansah to support her education in addition to boxes of Indomie instant noodles and Minimie Chinchin.

On her part, Miss Ansah said competing against 284 others gave her great exposure that will not only impact her life but also the life of those around her.

She said hardwork and support from her family as well as the organisers took her that far and challenged other young people to aim higher.

Eugenia Tachie-Menson, the Country Director of YEF, expressed gratitude to Indomie for the consistent support, adding that Indomie has stood by them over the years even when others were unwilling to support the cause.

She said the spelling competition was very crucial to the growth and development of children and therefore urged corporate bodies to emulate the good example of Indomie and support it.

She also urged parents and schools to encourage their children and pupils to enroll and participate in the competition.

She said the younger the children, the better, because they would have ample time to build their confidence to become champions.

She said her organisation was ready and willing to even train children as young as six years to become great spellers.
