Inna M. Patty, and the CEO of EEGL (organisers of the Miss Ghana Pageant) and speaker at the event stated the need, like previous mentorship programs “to empower our youth with knowledge to help them make informed and significant decisions about their health and well-being. This we believe is a significant tool in liberating Ghana from poverty, ignorance and disease there by increasing development and productivity in our dear Nation’’.

Afua Asieduaa Akrofi, Miss Ghana Ambassador also empathized the need for our youth to pledge to “Protect the Goal”. This means ‘’The need for our youth to abstain from sex or if sexually active, to practice safe sex.’ For the Senior High schools visited, she encouraged them to abstain and focus on their studies. She also encouraged them to know their HIV status by getting tested, maintain one  sexual partner and ‘practice safe sex’ by always using a condom.
A Pharmacist from Tobinco Pharmaceuticals talked about La Wash Intimate Hygiene and the necessity of using feminine products to keep our intimate areas clean especially as women.
As part of the feminine hygiene campaign, free Lawash intimate hygiene products were distributed to the female students.
Talks on Ebola, a deadly disease that has no cure was also a subject for our youth so they can better protect themselves and thereby mitigate easy transmission.
At the end of the event, thousands of students pledged to “Protect the Goal” by signing the pledge book.
