Many are attracted to Ghana's"Gold Coast" by the promise of wealth found in our natural resources, Oil & Gas, Mining and Cocoa. For generations however, our finest resource has been and remains to be, our human resource. Ghanaian students excel in universities across the globe and the ingenuity and creativity of our artisans and musicians is truly admirable.
AccraPremium had the privilege of meeting the young men behind Heel The World and suffice it to say, we were completely impressed by their professionalism, their creativity, their work ethic and the sense of positive purpose behind their business practices.
While Heel The World is primarily a men's shoe manufacturing company, there is an element of socially responsible entrepreneurship at the heart of their business model. An integral tool of communicating their message of entrepreneurial upliftment is their signature souvenir, the Empowerment Beads.
These young men, in collaboration with other organizations offer small business management and skills development training for aspiring entrepreneurs. You can follow their blog here. Through their leadership and initiative, these gentlemen and their young team demonstrate that Ghana's true golden years are yet to come.
