The Volta Regional Minister, Madam Helen Adjoa Ntoso, has been inducted into the Global Women Leaders Hall of Fame by the Centre for Economic and Leadership Development.
This was at the South America –Middle East-Asia Women Summit held in Dubai, United Arab Emirates on December 13, this year, under the auspices of the Georgia Legislative Black Caucus, Inc.
The Centre for Economic and Leadership Development (CELD) is a leading human capacity, gender empowerment and development-based organization working as a catalyst and thought leader in developing the theory and practice of leadership, social, educational and economic empowerment particularly in Africa, and also the developing countries of the Middle East and Asia.
As an organisation currently in special consultative status with the United Nations Economic and Social Council (UN ECOSOC) since 2012, it strives to advance its partnership with public and private sector organisations at different stages to develop, refine and effectively execute strategies that deliver superior corporate and institutional excellence.
Madam Ntoso who is also the MP for Krachi West was described at the grand event as a distinguished achiever and symbol of “female achievement globally”.
In a resolution, the Georgian Legislative Black Caucus, Inc. lauded the seasoned teacher, missionary, child care professional, politician and peace ambassador for her instrumentality in paving the way for individuals and businesses to expand economic and work force development opportunities for Africans in general, and Ghanaians in particular.
Madam Ntoso, who has since returned home, told the Ghanaian Times in Ho at the weekend that she was humbled by the honour bestowed upon her “at such a premier gathering of renowned women leaders from nations across the world”.
The Regional Minister said that she would dedicate the award to the many disadvantaged women in Ghana, adding that, “more importantly, I hope that it would serve as source of encouragement to the girl child without hope”.
