Maritime University partner NDB foundation to support 20 women with scholarships

The initiative is expected to help train girls and to help them acquire world-class training to develop in the marine industry

The Regional Maritime University says it is set to give scholarships to 20 women in the Greater Accra Region to study Marine Engine Mechanics.

The educational gesture is under the initiative of the 2020 winner of Ghana’s Most Beautiful Naa Dedei Botchwey, as part of her efforts to help the less privileged attain higher education. 

The package was revealed Friday (4 June) by the vice-chancellor of the University, Professor Elvis Nyarko at the signing of a memorandum of understanding (MoU) between the Naa Dedei Botchwey foundation (NDB) in collaboration with the Office of the Ga Mantse. 

Prof Nyarko said the university is committed to training more people in the marine sector to help the industry grow. 

He called for support for the initiative by the NDB foundation. 

Founder of the NDB foundation Naa Dedei Botchwey on her part said the importance of education to the development of every country cannot be downplayed hence her decision to embark on such an initiative.

“…I’m just excited that the girls who are joining this scholarship will have that world-class training to do all the work and develop in the marine industry. So we will have discussions with other universities and have scholarships with them…”
