In honour of the 100% participation rate and the cause the Class of 2019 chose to support, which was mental health awareness, Sangu Delle, one of Ashesi’s board members donated an amount of GHS 10,000, to top up the initial amount the class contributed to making it 15,000!!!!!
In TEDLagos in 2017, Sangu Delle shared how he learned to handle anxiety in a society that’s uncomfortable with emotions.
In the TED talk, Delle shared, “Being honest about how we feel doesn’t make us weak — it makes us human.”
