" We must not hate those who have done wrong to us for as soon as we begin to hate them we become just like them, pathetic, bitter and untrue. This is why I do the work I do, I want to spread love and truth to African youths. Reorient their mindset so they also can spread love because I believe it is only through love that we can make a tomorrow a better day. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Vocal Truth
The Vocal Truth project seeks to use literature and art to raise awareness on the problems in the society and to reorient the mindset of African youths. From August to November we attempt to make our content reach at least 1000 youths in Ghana.
