Miss Ghana 2004 supports Don Bosco Child Project
Inna Mariam Patty, Miss Ghana 2004, took part in a groundbreaking ceremony on Saturday to start the construction of an additional multi-purpose structure at the Don Bosco Technical & Vocational Training Institute in Ashaiman.
To be spearheaded by the Omenaa Mensah Foundation, Ms. Patty, who is also the CEO of Exclusive Events Ghana, the organisers of Miss Ghana pageant, was a special guest of honour invited by the Salesians of Don Bosco Anglophone West Africa Province.
It can be recalled that years ago, the Miss Ghana franchise holders helped acquire acres of land for the institution and helped in the building of a female hostel on the land.
Speaking at the ceremony, she urged corporate Ghana to support pageants in the country, especially the Miss Ghana Foundation because the pageantry is beyond scouting for beautiful ladies and crowning them.
According to her, there is a social intervention wing of the pageants such as embodied by the Miss Ghana Foundation that has contributed immensely to the socio-economic development of Ghana.
“I’m always humbled by such kind gestures and the opportunity to support a worthy cause, especially to empower our youth through education. I thank Almighty Allah for blessing me with the opportunity to be able to extend support to the most vulnerable in our society.
I also thank ‘angels’ such as the former Director of Tema Development Corporation (TDC), Mansa Bansa; MD of Cal Bank, Frank Adu; former MD of Stanbic Bank, Bill Thomas, amongst others, who made our dream a reality 13 years ago,” Inna Patty, who was accompanied by Mr Ghana Ambassador, Archibald Quaye, said at the ceremony.
She also assured of further “plans in place to carry out another magnificent project to commemorate our diamond jubilee celebrations and we shall be knocking on your doors.”
Fathers Chris Nizniak, and Piotr Wojnarowski at Don Bosco thanked Inna Patty for the kind support she has being extending to Don Bosco for many years now.
