I endured the agony of dropping out of school and child labour; grandmom re-enrolled me in school to complete elementary education which i did with excellent grades but I couldn't get a sponsor to fund my secondary educucation (an equivalent of High School) so I stayed out of school again for almost three years before securing academic scholarship to further my education. After High School, I got admission to pursue Bachelor of Arts, Communication Studies in the Ghana Institute of Journalism where I served as the Student representative Council Vice President, but, for the third time, I dropped out of school in my final year owing to funding problems.
Going back to my birthplace, I found many of the people I started school with enduring poverty. Many of them could not go beyond elementary school; very few got high school education. It is obvious their children would suffer similar fates. But, I couldn't look on as their innate abilities drain into uselessness so I established a child development facility in memory of my late grandmom to save at least the children. The facility which started with three children now has over 350 beneficiaries ( www.raymondablorh.blogspot.com).
I also write features on serious development issues for the leading national daily in Ghana ( Daily Graphic). I have done this since the year 2000. My passion to contribute towards the change I want to see in society continue to grow though I am not paid for my works. I also a Columnist with ghanaweb.com as well as the Ghana Broadcasting Corporation's website.
Presently, I am embarking on THE MOTIVATE YOUNG AFRICANS PROJECT (MYAP), the first phase of which is YOUTH IMPACT GHANA AWARDS. ( www.myyiga.com). My earnest desire is to be the greatest positive change that happened to Africa.
