Jennifer Ofori Completes University in 2016

Jennifer Ofori was born on the 10th of October 1990. She had her basic school education at Obom RC, the same village where Humanitas Afrika operates from in Ghana. In 2007, she got admission to Accra High Senior High School to study Business for her Senior High School education. She was admitted unto Humanitas Afrika’s program because she had no one to fully finance her education at this stage.

During her four-year stint at Accra High Senior High School, she got full support from Humanitas Afrika - payment of termly school fees and other supplementary bills and was also insured on the National Health Insurance Scheme in Ghana. She successfully completed in 2011, passing her West African Senior Secondary School Examination (WASSCE) with flying colours. She gained admission to study Bachelor of Education in Accounting at Valley View University. In June 2016, she graduated from the university with a 2nd Class Upper honour degree in Accounting.

With the constant support of her sponsor Blanka Skalova through the works of Humanitas Afrika, her education was financed for 9 years. She is even more grateful because she lost her biological mother and father along the years. These were some of her words to her sponsor: I would not have come this far without your help and support. I will forever be grateful to you (Blanka Skalova) for all that you have done for me… I promise to work hard wherever I find myself to earn a decent living so that your help will not be in vain. I have acquired the necessary knowledge, skill and moral value to serve mankind and my country… thanks once again”.

In an official letter to the organization she joyfully expressed her appreciation and gratitude: It is my prayer that you (Humanitas Afrika) continue to grow and excel so that you can help other young people like me for them to achieve success in their education and make their dreams a reality and become useful individuals in the society. I promise to do my best wherever I find myself. God bless Humanitas Afrika. Thank you”.

Now, Jennifer is awaiting the start of her national service at the Regional Hospital in Koforidua in the Eastern Region of Ghana after which she would apply to become a salaried worker after one year. She hopes to work for many years but has plans of acquiring her Master’s Degree in the future. Her dream is to become a Chartered Accountant.
