As part of our commitment to improve the next generation of talent and harness leadership potential in the digital sector, dentsu colleagues have been volunteering their skills in Ghana, teaching in a group of schools across 2021. We also donated educational materials including computers, projectors, assorted reading materials, maths sets and equipment, crayons and paper to the Tesano Cluster of Schools. This forms part of our wider Social Impact strategy, harnessing the talent, energy and aspirations of our people and delivering for our clients, our shareholders and wider society.

At a donation ceremony in one of the schools, CEO of dentsu Ghana, Mr Andrew Ackah, said: “The fundamental part of our business is communication and communication comes through education. It is essential for the business to have the right skillsets in the right places with the right empowerment culture. At dentsu, we believe the right foundation must be laid to achieve this.”

Mrs Joyce Nana Simmons, Headteacher of Tesano 1KG/Primary School, expressed her excitement, emphasising the importance of the educational materials to the school as they will broaden the students’ horizons

In the future, dentsu Ghana has pledged to maintain and nurture a relationship with the Tesano Cluster of Schools, dedicating further time to educating the children, improving learning outcomes and providing insight into a diverse world of work beyond the school walls
