In a speech, the Chairman of the Executive Council of GHAFES, Ing. Magnus Lincoln Quarshie, said students must strive to make a positive impact on the society by making an effort to solve problems in their communities.
The National Director of GHAFES, Rev. Gadzekpo also added that GHAFES was committed to training students who would make a lasting impact in the society while living a life dedicated to God. He encouraged the students to take jobs in less privileged communities so as to help them build a selfless life and train them to become responsible citizens.
In reference to Matthew 28: 18- 19, Rev. Gadzekpo urged the students to fulfil the mission assigned to us all by our Lord Jesus Christ, knowing the power and authority of the one who has sent us. He concluded by saying that as GHAFES students, the core mandate is to “Know Christ and make Him known!”
