  • Celebrating the Benefits of Prioritizing Education

On 24 January 2021, GGHN celebrated International Day of Education, reflecting on the importance of investing in people and prioritizing education. As part of its celebration, GGHN highlighted the success of its HACBY Public Health Research Internship program, a joint initiative with Savannah Health System Innovation Ltd (SHSIL). GGHN interviewed mentors and previous mentees to showcase the program's successes and shared their stories via social media.

One alumnus of the program, Fatima Sani, who is now a research associate at GGHN, shared her experience. She explained that the internship helped her to transform her knowledge and skills into actionable products. The interview videos reached 2,506 social media users, and 1,084 watched the videos across Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and LinkedIn. GGHN remains committed to investing in education and providing opportunities for young people to develop the skills and knowledge they need to succeed in their careers.
