Ms. Patty recapped that Miss Ghana Foundation is not just about grooming beauty queens but committed to the development of societies and one of the major projects undertaken by the Miss Ghana Foundation, among many others is the Don Bosco Technical & Vocational Training Institute in Ashaiman where the Foundation aided in acquiring a 10-acre land and established a hostel where thousands of street children are given social and technical training.
She disclosed that the project, when completed, would train the youth in dress and hair making, catering, secretarial courses, carpentry, masonry, auto mechanics etc, to equip the youth with employable skills to enable them financially to help minimize the social vices in the community and bring development to the town.
