Stacy Amewoyi Talks About True Love And How To Grow It Together

I had a one on one conversation with a friend sometime ago, he told me his relationship broke up with his best friend which made him loose interest in many things.
 
This was what he told me “The last time I was with her, before saying goodbye, she told me that she did not believe that friendship exists between the opposite gender.”

While the divorce rate in Africa is 37%, America is close to 50%, Europe 53%, and Asia is 15% these tells you that, true love seems to be a fiction of any Nigerian movies, Ghanaian movies, and Hollywood movie.

I determined to find the meaning of truth Love so I met so many different men and women and they told me their experiences and views on Love issues. These are some of the knowledge i have gained about successful relationships.

Make Memories Daily

"Couples who try to experience some kind of meaningful connection every day, or create a fun memory; They are the couples that shattered my perception of what was possible in a love relationship. "

Never Stop Growing

"I learned that a long-term relationship is not about making you happy. It's about personal growth. To put it simply, the happiness we all desire is a result of overcoming challenges and obstacles together, and experiencing the emotions of victory and achievement. "

Vodafone Talks Private Sector Relevance In SDGs At UN Forum

Mr. Gayheart Mensah, External Affairs Director of Vodafone Ghana, has said that private sector players have immense potential to accelerate the attainment of the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in Ghana, if they put their minds and efforts behind it.

Speaking at a side-event during the UN High Level Political Forum (HLPF) at the UN Headquarters in New York on the theme, "Empowering people and ensuring inclusiveness and equality”, Gayheart called for a relook at how successful organisations are assessed, in order to ensure that the private sector contributes more significantly to delivering on the SDGs.

“Organizations should not be assessed only by how profitable or economically sustainable they are. The social and economic sustainability of their activities should be key components of any assessment, and not just left to conscience, morality and ethics. This will make organizations strive for partnerships and the appropriate governance framework that will support the attainment of the 2030 Agenda,” he suggested.

He said that Vodafone is persuaded that there is something more valuable than just being a profitable organization and that is the impact an organization has on people and communities. That, he stated, explains the current partnership Vodafone has with the Government of Ghana, particularly the Ghana Statistical Service (GSS).
