The Rassam Initiative Team seeks to bring together people from all walks of life in the fields of politics, business, education and religion who are passionate about change.
It saw its first edition of the forum on April 26, 2019, at Pentecost University College (PUC) on the theme, “Challenging the Status Quo: The Role of Change Makers”.
This brought together personalities like the former Minister of Youth and Sports, Elvis Afriyie Ankrah, Rector of Pentecost University College, Apostle Dr. Daniel Okyere Walker, coaches from the John Maxwell team Ms. Catherine Engmann and Mr. Kobina Samore, Business mogul, Mr. Moses Kanduri, Venture Capitalist, HRH Duke Adu-Gyamfi, a Fighter General at the Economic Freedom Fighters, Mr. Hardi Yakubu, among others.
Touching on the need for the youth of Ghana to start challenging the status quo, the guests further empowered the youth to probe more and get involved in national issues as it is their right to ensure the right thing is done to secure the future of the country and the generations to come.
The 2020 Change Makers forum is designed to redefine democracy as a Ghanaian institution, in which the ordinary Ghanaian citizen can use it for positive change.
“Change is inevitable, and democracy, without political self-interest, as people of the future, is the only leverage we have for a sustainable and continuing national development”, said Head of Communications of the Rassam Initiative, Paul Osei-Bonsu during the team’s general meeting held at Pentecost University College.
