Interview with Nathaniel Padi - A 14 year old mobile entrepreneur in Ghana.


Nathaniel walked into Mobile Web Ghana Lab in early October 2012 and asked us 
if we could help him develop a mobile version of a software he had created with his 
friend. We are amazed about this young entrepreneur, so much that we decided to 
create this interview about him. Interestingly, he wanted to sell his app in order to
raise money to buy himself a laptop.

Young People Commemorate WAD in Nalerigu

 
Two Junior High Schools in Nalerigu in northern Ghana test their knowledge in 
sexual reproductive health and HIV/AIDS issues during a quiz competition to 
mark World AIDS Day.

Hundreds of young people commemorate World AIDS Day (WAD) in Kolinvai, a farming community in Nalerigu in Northern Ghana. The event to mark the day was organized by the Association of Church-based Development NGOs (ACDEP) in collaboration with the Baptist Medical Centre (BMC).
Activities marking the day included a radio discussion, quiz competition, interactive drama and a grand durbar of young people and adult community members. The durbar was enlivened with cultural drumming and dancing by sons and daughters of Nalerigu.

The global theme for the Day is: “Getting to Zero”, while the national theme is: “Ghana towards an HIV free generation through PMTCT, safe sex and Stigma reduction”.
This is the second time that ACDEP is organising this event to create and deepen awareness on sexual and reproductive health issues and provide an opportunity for young people to celebrate life and unite in the fight against HIV; show their support for people living with HIV and AIDS and to commemorate people who have died through AIDS.

ACDEP’s decision to support young people to commemorate the day is in fulfilment of a statement Mr. Malex Alebikiya, Executive Director of ACDEP made during the 2013 event in Tamale, where he declared: “Part of the decision of organizing this event is sustainability. It only makes sense to organize this event if we believe there is a future for it. And we think there is.” The 2013 event was organised with support from IICD / volunteers of the WoD programme.

The commemoration of the 2014 World AIDS Day event was made possible by our partners: Connect4Change, Baptist Medical Centre, Ghana Health Service, Ghana AIDS Commission, the East Mamprusi District Assembly and the traditional authorities.
