Reverend Ofori-Boateng said Aequitas, which is the Latin word for “Equity” proposes that the world could not be equal but the world could be fairer.
This fairness, she said could be achieved by looking out for opportunities for young people to get a better chance at their career opportunities through internship programmes to make them knowledgeable and gain exposure.
“To achieve this fairness and utilization of opportunities, we look out for internship programs for young underprivileged people to give them the exposure to possibility”.
