Mr Brumpon stated these during an educational advocacy seminar organised to interact with students of the Accra High School to mark this year’s World AIDS Day, which was celebrated on December 1, 2015.
He advised the students to see AIDS and HIV as a global challenge and, therefore, “as students commit to help society find a solution to Aids and HIV.
“This can be done by firstly appreciating the problem and abstaining from early sex for prevention and also researching into solutions to the problem.
“Finding a cure for HIV and AIDS is not beyond a student of Accra High School if the students will see it as a problem that needs to be solved through dedication and hard work”.
Mr. Brumpon noted that instead of harbouring dreams of resettling in advanced countries the students should rather think of ways of developing Ghana.
“Every invention is designed to address a specific problem, so to succeed in life you must come up with solutions for the various problems we face in our society.
“That is the only way Ghana can become like America and the other countries you admire so much,” he said.
He advised the students to focus on their studies and avoid early sex which often leads to teenage pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections.
Mr Gerald Aryee, Communications Officer of Educational Resources, explained that the workshop was organized to motivate the students while reminding students of the dangers of HIV and AIDS and the need for a solution for the global challenge.
“The youth are the most precious resource this country possesses and it is important that we preserve their health and encourage them to take initiative so that they can channel their energies into the development efforts of Ghana and the various global challenges,” he said.
Educational Resources was founded in 2006 to assist less privileged children to achieve their full potential through education.
“We fund programmes that help children and young adults to identify and nurture their talents.
“We believe that all children have the ability to be valuable members of society and should therefore be given the opportunity to develop their abilities, regardless of their family or economic background” he said.
