One of Ghana’s profound and dignifies educationist of all times and one of the most eminent Africans of his day, Dr. James E. Kwegyir Aggrey once quoted ‘if you educate a man you educate a person, but if you educate a woman you educate a whole nation”.
This saying has had it true effect on our dear nation Ghana as our mothers irrespective of the situation, whether favorable or unfavorable conditions strive hard through thick and thin to educate their children to be equiped with Knowledge, Information and Education so as to assume responsible roles in their respective professions, and it is haertwarming to note that heir efforts have yielded positive fruits especially on the socio-economic development of Ghana. This saying of Dr Aggrey seems to have a profound effects on the lives of some few muslim professional women in Ghana and are spearheading a counselling and mentorship educational programs in basic schools located in and around deprived communities across the country and also providing assistance through scholarships schemes for needy but brilliant children.

Hajia Hannatu Kugblenu is an educationist with the Ghana Education Service - school feeding program unit and a member of AN-NISAA Foundation joined by her colleagues visited the Nurumustafia Islamic Basic School located near Tema.

The programm was well attended by pupils and it afforded them the opportunity interact with the visitors.The school children ages between 5 -15 years old really enjoyed listening to their mothers from AN-NISAA Foundation as they take them through series of counselling and mentorship drives.Just sit, relax and go through the pictures and you'll never regret you did..............................
