Accra Brewery Limited (ABL) has supported the maiden edition of the Graphic Communication Group Limited’s (GCGL) Tertiary Business Sense Competition, to fulfil our Dream of bringing people together for a better world.

ABL donated 100 packs of Beta Malt, our non-alcoholic malt beverage, towards the organisation of the programme.

According to GCGL’s Head of Marketing, Mr. Franklin Sowa, the Tertiary Business Sense Competition seeks to develop the human capacity of the country’s youth by unearthing talent and growing business minds for national development.

Speaking at the launch of the competition at the British Council, ABL’s Director of Legal & Corporate Affairs, Ms. Adwoa Aaba Arthur, emphasised ABL’s commitment to investing in a Growing World where everyone has the opportunity to improve their livelihood.

Ms. Arthur said, “Our support for education is part of our Dream to improve the livelihood of our youth and urge them on to seek opportunities in the corporate world”.

Additionally, Ms. Arthur remarked that ABL’s support of education through a number of initiatives such as the Global Management Trainee Programme, is part of our desire to be “Admired for our commitment to improving the lives of more people in more communities, and making a real difference in our society".

She, therefore, lauded GCGL and participating schools for sharing ABL’s commitment to education, and assured them of our continued support for such innovative projects.
